This Exclusive Photo Shoot Shows Why Acne Studios SS17 Is a Work of Art


Location: Paris, France

Season: Spring/Summer 2017, Resort

Key Looks: The paisley print camp shirt delivers swinging ’60s vibes in the best possible way, the patent Chelsea boots are too strong, and those side-zip track pants are expertly styled.

Editor’s Notes: Our latest editorial hones focus on everyone’s favorite alt-minimal brand Acne Studios. We strip things back to the label’s genesis (and unpack the brand’s acronym) which is to always possess an “Ambition to Create Novel Expressions.”

Shot in the studio of painter Francis Essoua and Christian Maugein, Acne’s latest wares serve to echo the blurred lines between art and fashion, with raw details on garments set against a backdrop of artworks in constructions.

Watch a lo-fi video of the editorial in action below, and soak your senses into this romantically ravaged visual narrative.
