Does “Duvet dressing” tell you something? It is the theme of the new Acne Studios Fall Winter 2021 collection, but it was also the great protagonist of 2020. The lockdown forced us at home and everyone reacted in their own way: but we are sure all of us, at one point, experimented with the “duvet dressing” phase, that is to say, the best outfit to stay all day on the sofa, made of pajamas, wrapped blankets and comfortable sweaters. Acne’s collection is much more refined than the image that “duvet dressing” probably creates in your mind. The starting point, however, is the same.
There are therefore outerwear and floral suits, which seem to come out of the old-fashioned blankets sometimes present on sofas; composite knitted outfits, as if they were made of many different and disparate pieces, put together by chance (and in any case, super chic in appearance!); draped dresses and two very fluffy co-ords at the beginning of the show. Sandals, even those with high and sexy heels, are worn with thick wool maxi socks.
Jewellery and accessories are fun (have you seen the kitten bags?) and futuristic and give the collection essential completeness. Although inspired by the lockdown outfit, these are clothes to carry around and wear in the open air, because they are beautiful, super modern and have, as always, that je-ne-sais-quoi that we like so much in Acne Studios.
