Watershed..

Acne is known for their peculiar androgyny that is one of the brand's signatures. The fall winter collection was all about: cropped overalls with platform sandals and sheer, flesh-toned socks, dusty pink, mustard, and olive. Johansson claimed inspiration from the girls in his design studio, people who conjured maximum cool out of minimum budget, reconfiguring workwear as a chic little something. 
Johansson said he'd also been looking at the work of British artist Daniel Silver, so he was thinking about sculptural forms. Kudos to that somewhat abstract influence if it dictated the appealing volumes of the clothes, particularly when they were shown in richly colored leather.  To me it was the color palette as a whole that made this show!
