Photos: The Fashionisto
Due in no small part to budgetary constraints (and the fact that my daily wardrobe is ascetic to say the least), I don’t often watch the menswear shows and think, ‘I am going to get me one of those shirts, suits or Hermes emerald green suede henley tees.’ However, when a friend showed me ACNE’s postcard sweaters from the Fall 2011 collection, I decided that in this case, the forbidden fruit must be tasted. I’m obsessed. It’s a combination of the navy blue, maroon and grey marle colourways; the slim, cropped shape; and the amazingly kitschy, incorrectly-labelled tourist prints. I might even go so far as to get two – blue and maroon. Speaking of which, AS Colour are about to release a new navy box crew and a new maroon tee shirt, so Katherine and I are currently locked in ruthless negotiations over releasing a limited edition print run of THUGGED OUT SINCE CUB SCOUTS sweaters and tees. Holla! Keep an eye out.
Side note: This full length duffel coat from the same collection is also awesome.
I LIKE YOU!
