While some menswear labels begin with directional collections and eventually take a more commercial approach to stay in the business, Acne appears to have taken the road less travelled and releases collections that seems more subversive than the last.
With AW15, designer Jonny Johansson explains “The idea was to give men what makes them feel comfortable and secure. English tailoring, donkey jackets, football.”

In the lookbook, models wear scarves emblazoned with “EQUALITY”, “FEMINIST” and “GENDER”, referencing the fight of feminists and LGBT activists. The collection is as much a political statement as it is an amalgam of luxury and activewear. The Swedish brand approaches AW15 with a twist on tradition where tweed tailored jackets are boxy in shape, hunting coats are either elongated or cropped and leggings, worn on their own or under knee-length tailored shorts, feature tie-dye prints to give the holistic touch of yoga for men.

Johansson says “I wanted to explore what it means to feel masculine, and fit into what we understand as men’s style” and while he challenges the status quo, his adept ability to craft garments that are wearable and chic is still very relevant in the menswear market today.
