Look at your Twitter feed right now (if you're reading this within a week or two of me writing) and it's probably full of fashion insiders singing the praises of whichever designer is showing their SS13 collection. "Love, love, love" it goes but there's a difference, dare I say, between a fashion show you love and what you really end up wearing. Then there's ACNE. Just looking around LFW this week, it's ACNE that's everywhere. From those never-going-away pistol boots to biker jackets, camo shirts and fluffy neon jumpers, they all have Jonny Johannson's fingerprints all over them. This afternoon, ACNE showed SS13 in a stark office building in which they had installed a candy striped pen. Given that the soundtrack was punctuated with cowboy-cartoony "yeee-haws", the set now makes me think that maybe we were in some kind of rif on the country market cattle auction. Anyway, if Johnny really does kinda dictate what fashion girls and boys will be anchoring their wardrobes with then here are a few predictions for how SS13 might shape up...
1. SLOGAN TEE
Not that ACNE don't do them already...
2. THE NEW BIKER
3. BUCKLE UP
4. CONTRAST COLOUR FLOUNCES
5. LOOOOOONG SKIRT
6. A DOUBLE HEADED COWGIRL HAT... MAYBE?
