Acne Resort 2013

Often when designers do a resort collection, they focus on print, color pop, flowing dresses and tunics. It is refreshing to see this Resort 2013 collection from Acne that includes those resort staples but incorporates a sense of humour, raunch, as well as decadent and sublime mix and match pieces. Highly editorial and stylish, each look is so different it could in itself be the main attraction of another Acne collection. The orthopedic, gladiator boots and quirky hats pull the outfits together. Being on vacation means letting go of yourself, and in Acne’s world it means becoming someone else.
