Acne A/W 2008 Women collection is eclectic in style
Dec '08
This season the women's collection have been on separate journeys, inspiration-wise, although they keep the playful and irreverent take on fashion that is so important to Acne. Similarly, our wardrobe concept is in constant focus, allowing the wearer to pick and choose from a palette filled with exotic textures, unusual fabrics and unexpected colours, with the intention of creating a look entirely one's own.

Acne Womenswear A/W 2008
Imagine the fierce and powerful matador Juanita Cruz, battling a heaving, bloodied bull in Mexico in 1945, in a full skirt. Then consider the contemporary matador champion Christina Sanchez in her traje de luces, her bullfighter's suit of lights, a heavily decorated jacket with extreme shoulders, and the now customary Capri pants. These are the heroines that have inspired Acne's a/w 08 collection, with their fearlessness, courage, strength and creativity.

The collection is eclectic in style, with tough leathers combined with soft cashmere, transparent mesh with heavy velour and futuristic neoprene with fine silks.

Aspiring to be as youthful and mischievous as the female matadors, with their audacity to question the conventions, Acne's a/w 08 collection features a masculine T-shaped silhouette, with broad shoulders and a nipped-in waist, unexpectedly combined with the most delicate of skirts, bursting with frills, tucks and folds.

Powdery pinks, emerald greens, dusty blues and soft camels are combined with sombre blacks, deep purples and dark greys to create a look that is both severe and tender at the same time.
