Acne AW14

Dynamic print, unconventional structure and underlying elements of sportswear innovation

Initial Reaction:

A dynamic burst of contrasting prints and unconventionally structured garments, with underlying elements of sportswear innovation.

Stand out looks:

Two offerings of anorak style outerwear, one zebra print and one tiger. The stiff glossy fabric made for a very lavish take on a streetwear classic.

Print Progression:

A hypnotic swirling print was developed throughout the collection, placed on oversized outerwear, softly silhouetted trousers and sharp tailored jackets.

Unexpected details:

Spherical discs, worn around the neck were layered over the lavish anoraks, almost weapon like in their appearance.


An abstract take on the timeless bobble hat, fabricated in duck-egg blue tweed, charcoal fur, caramel felt and rough silvery grey wool. They were worn oversized, leaving half of each models face peeping through.
