London Fashion Week has, as always, been a treat for fashion lovers everywhere. Not only do the lucky A-list front row (or ‘frow’ as they are affectionately nicknamed) ticket holders get a chance to see what pieces will be lining their wardrobes in 2013, but us mere mortals have had a chance to drool over the designer offerings as well thanks to the show live streams. One brand that will undoubtedly be surrounded by much discussion over in the blogosphere is Acne.

The brand, whose name stands for ‘Ambition to Create Novel Experience’, is almost infamous for their boots alone. However, it’s Acne’s new Spring/Summer ’13 clothing collection that everybody will be talking about after their runway show.

Although there was the odd pop of colour within the collection, it seemed like the new range was largely monochrome centric. Certainly the more structured pieces, for example the buckled coats and striped jackets, kept to this theme. It has been suggested that this decision to stick to block colours is a reaction against the previous seasons fixation with prints. Perhaps Acne are trying to go against the grain, in order to come up with something innovative.

Alongside the structured pieces, were a whole selection of billowing sleeves, split skirts, and buckled flowing dresses. Slogan tees also made an appearance, and arguably they were there to make statements about the brands new line. ‘Music’, ‘collage’, and ‘new’ were the words that were emblazoned on the model’s shirts and it seems that they are the three words that embody this new collection. New is a given, music is apparently a great influence upon the Acne team, and the collection does seem a little like a collage of ideas.

The Swedish brand has certainly lived up to its cult status this year. True to form, Jonny Johansson chose to close the show with another Swedish institution’s music; ‘Dancing Queen’. The Editeur are big fans of both ABBA and Acne, so they were thrilled that the two were joined together at Fashion Week! The independent boutique, which is situated in the heart of historic Chester, stock a range of items from Acne’s collection as well as a number of other designer womenswear pieces including MW Matthew Williamson. If London Fashion Week has left you feeling inspired, then pop in to chat about your favourite shows and have a look through their rails.
