Disco Music Inspires ACNE's Spring/Summer Line 2011

Fashion & Style: A good night lives eternally; replayed again and again. Hence, the inspiration behind the Spring/Summer 2011 menswear collection for Scandinavian label ACNE.

Based on a summer night escape, menswear maven Jonny Johansson, ACNE’s Creative Director since the line was founded in 1996, and the rest of his men's design team, sought to incorporate innovative multi-length layers, high waist fits, and contrast of high and low length pants.

“Fashion is the best form of self-expression. We like to design pieces that together form the coolest wardrobe, but are ultimately wearable. It becomes one way of thinking as individual pieces, but together creates a strong, modern and considered statement,” explains Johansson.

Much like an eclectic gathering, the line mixes schoolboy shorts and layered tees together with lean double-breasted suits. Navy is used heavily throughout from accessory pieces to an array of trousers.

Exploring the juxtaposition of tightly tailored jackets against the softer silhouettes of layering pieces, silks, jerseys, cotton, wool and microfiber, all fuse together in cool homage to the days of disco, as the play with proportions offers options all year long.
