Safari So Good: Acne Studios Fall 2014

Many scour the collections in search of standout statement accessories. And though some might have spotted an occasional act of brilliance this Fashion Week, those present at Acne Studio’s show were fortuitous enough to witness a jumbo safari-beanie hat hybrid. In fact, creative director Jonny Johansson put a safari stamp on the entire collection.

If the oversized headgear didn’t hook you, the stylized animal prints sure did. The Swedish fashion house’s offerings included relaxed-fit separates, splashed with bursts of pastel colors. Muted gray shift dresses featured hints of mint or coral swirls, and 70s-style welt and patch pockets were just as prominent as the oversized accessories toted down the runway.

Acne is no stranger mixing classic tailoring and eclectic touches. This credo was evident in everything from the precise felted wool wraps to the spherical neck jewelry — perfect for any urban jungle.
