Acne Studios SS16
With the weather starting to turn, you’re going to need an update to your wardrobe and ditch those thick sweaters for something a little thinner. One of our favourite crew jumper providers at the moment is Stockholm-based Acne Studios, and they’ve just dropped their spring/summer 2016 collection!
Bringing their signature contemporary Scando-cool to the season, Acne Studios’ SS16 collection features a range of crew sweats which have been updated to provide Joes with slimmer silhouettes designed to be layered with outerwear. They’ve also dropped some knitwear that’s become synonymous with the brand.
Building on their existing offering of ‘Face’ pieces, the Large Face Crew Sweat sees the brand’s signature motif blown up in scale, off-set to the hem of an otherwise classically styled sweat. The crew sweat expertly combines comfort and styling, and is a perfect example of the slimmer silhouettes on offer this season.
Our favourite pieces in the collection, however, are probably more suited to the cooler months of the season. Determined to cater for all weathers in this unpredictable time of the year, knitwear in the collection features heavily with a blend cashmere and soft virgin wool, as well as pastel tones prominent throughout.
Made from a wool and cashmere blended Donegal yarn, the Peele Donegal Crew is the best example of this knitwear. After constructed, the jumper has been pilled by hand to create a subtle vintage touch that oozes class.
If you do need some garments for warmer climates, though, the SS16 collection provides plenty of options in predominantly block-coloured shorts, tees and even swimshorts designed to pack away easily into a matching drawstring bag to save on space.
We love the Acne Studios SS16 collection and think it epitomises the best of Scandinavia’s effortless style. The whole range is available now from the End Clothing Website.
