Swedish fashion brand Acne Studios presented its men’s collection for fall and winter 2016–17 in Paris during Paris Fashion Week.

“The collection has a magpie quality for me,” says Jonny Johansson, creative director of Acne Studios. “I have taken strands of Swedish folklore, the uniform of a practicing artist, the beauty of 1940s tailoring and found a common language between the three. The music gave me additional texture to play with and the quiet quirk of the collection rides with the soundtrack.”

The understated collection combines boxy, double-breasted jackets to workwear-inspired pants and voluminous organza shirts. An oversized donkey jacket with half kimono is mixed with half raglan sleeves. The woven wool coats of the collection carry details inspired by Swedish folklore, and cropped suede pants and tailored wool pants with front pleats are tapered at the ankle and combined with chunky socks, felt slippers and sneakers that have an extra thread. The colour palette consists of muted navy, grey and ivory with flashes of lavender and pink. •
