Acne’s Pop Classics throws some great (new) shapes

By Colin Chapman on February 11th, 2009

As the days lengthen, the volume has definitely been turned up on Spring fashion options. A clear voice amongst the throng, ACNE have just launched their SS09 POP Classics collection. Inspired by reminiscence of ‘the freedom of our teenage years‘ (a serious lot those Swedes), the collection features lovely, bleached-out pastels and some groundbreaking shapes.

T-shirts come in luxurious, sexy jersey with ‘stretched-out’ or ‘deep round’ necklines and an overall looseness in shape – perfect for playing with proportion alongside some slim jeans. More unusual (at least for men) are the ‘carrot’ and ‘balloon’ leg trousers which can be worn alongside those loose T-shirts with some smart shoes to add gravity. Speaking of shoes, how about seeing last summer’s Happy Days loafers in primary colours? You’d certainly turn heads in these though not sure what The Fonz would think about it all.
