Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016
As a major source of inspiration for creative director of Acne Studios Johnny Johansson became the era of the 80s, namely the attitude of the group The Cramps: «It was provocative, aggressive, and I wanted to bring that mood to what we do». The collection was a contrast due to mixing of bulk and stretch things. Oversize jackets, buttoned askew, patent leather coat with huge sleeves and fluffy pants combined with a narrow body, skinny-pants and long sweaters. Leopard print and stripe were submitted as prints.
A bit og gothic, rock ‘n’ roll and ethnic motifs included in a new collection of Elie Saab. Ink blue, black and burgundy, combined with lace, colored pearls and fringe were the main distinctive marks for evening dresses. Short shorts, boots, wide-brimmed hats and jackets, embroidered were presented as casual looks. From the outwear you could see hoodies, embroidered leather jackets, fur vests and leather jackets.
