Acne Studios SS ’16: Electric Guitars & ‘Sock on Soles’

Acne Studios’ SS ’16 collection embedded a rather unusual direction from what most would expect from the brand’s ongoing transformation. Music iconography met the Parisian runway this season—collections have been gradually progressing past the brand’s clean aesthetic, though its core identity always still remains.

This season’s collection triggered through boxy shoulder-padded blazers with plexiglass electric guitars, boldly embellished onto the backs and fronts of garments. Semi-distressed knitwear and Moroccan slip-ons made appearances throughout, while Acne’s lightweight sock-like slip-on “Sock on Soles” asserted themselves as this season’s must-haves.
