Review: Acne Studios Resort 2017

Acne Studios Resort 2017. Fangirls revisited.

By this point, it's no surprise that Acne Studios' Johnny Johansson has drawn inspiration from music groups, once again. For Resort 2017, he was capitvated by Grateful Dead, an American band formed in the 1960s, especially the iconic eclectic style and countercultural appeal that comes with them. The collection was an ode to the band’s fans — Deadheads — that loyally followed their uniqueness and daring style. Think complex hippie-esque prints, headbands, and knee length dresses! But how did Johansson create this effect?

“I got thinking about what a daughter of a Deadhead would wear today,” said Johansson. Even though motifs from the 60s are back in this collection, it was the futuristic aesthetic predominated, made up of draping fabrics, knits intermixed with prints, soothing pastels, leather bags, and straight hair.

Resort collections often take their inspiration from great voyages, and with Acne Studios it was no exception; with it, we got to travel in time.

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.
