The Centre Pompidou, a modern-art museum in Paris’ 4th arrondissement, made for a fitting backdrop to Acne Studios’ hyper-modern collection for Fall/Winter 2015. A youthful crowd gathered outside to enjoy another facet of the Acne Studios event: a live performance by electronic French duo Paradis, which had been curated by the visual maestros at M/M Paris. Inside, a parade of eclectic clothes captivated an altogether different audience.

The Centre Pompidou made for a fitting backdrop to Acne Studios’ hyper-modern collection for Fall 2015.

Jonny Johansson has been steering the Acne ship into ever-more-contemporary waters, to the point where Fall/Winter 2015 resembled nothing of the brand’s former self. The stiff hourglass form, rounded shoulders, and wide sleeves of his coats hailed from another planet, while desaturated graphics amped up a selection of jumpsuits and frocks. Johansson painstakingly reworked wool blankets into shapely outerwear and bound seams with exaggerated lacing, but they left a rather mature impression. These were paired with tweed riding trousers, asymmetrical skirts, or tight, split-hem pants. The ideas had merit, especially in the case of patchworked sleeveless coats with fleecy cape attachments and one particular dusty-pink coat that sported glorious construction. Whether Acne’s bevy of bright young things will support the new direction with their wallets remains to be seen.
