Acne Studios AW15

Getting inspired by photographer Viviane Sassen, with ornate nose rings and Stephen Jones millinery

Initial reaction: 

Jonny Johansson’s point of reference this season was Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, and the unique tones in her work – inspired by a childhood spent in Africa. 

Tough techno: 

A hard techno-heavy soundtrack echoed the robust quality of the materials used – like mocha leather and staunch, flecked tweed. Exposed top stitches and unfinished hems roughened up the skin-tight looks, which were finished with large, ornate nose rings, brown visor shades and oversized failsworth hats designed by Stephen Jones – sported by the likes of Olympia Campbell.

Stand out look:

A skin-coloured mesh top worn bra-less and paired with patched, high-waisted blue trousers that looked like they’d been created from recycled fabric.
