What is life without music? This has been a question posed repeatedly by Acne Studios’ Creative Director Jonny Johansson. For Fall/Winter 2016, the designer drew inspiration from 70s punk rock band The Cramps, celebrating band members like Poison Ivy and Lux Interior for their provocativeness. In effect, punk fashion is officially back! Acne’s inherent edginess and exploration of youth were ingeniously integrated with a rebellious, rock concert feeling this season, while models like Arizona Muse and Ine Neefs catwalked in stark silhouettes, moto jackets, quilted linings, leather jumpsuits, and tons of leopard print. Once again, Jonny Johansson has left us all captivated by his stroke of genius.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
