ACNE STUDIOS REVEAL THEIR WOMEN'S PRE-FALL 2017 COLLECTION FT. BOBBY GILLESPIE

Bobby Gillespie for Acne Pre-Fall '17

 

WORDS Julian de la Celle


     Acne Studios has just revealed their Women's Pre-Fall 2017 collection featuring Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie. In a time where gender fluidity is becoming the norm, Acne has taken it one step further and now has a man modeling their womenswear. Each piece feels like it would effortlessly fit on either a man or woman, and either would be visually stunning! 60s colours, materials and patterns filled the collection ranging from light purple satin, to a stripped corduroy suit. There's a certain playfulness that Gillespie adds to the collection as he's seen pretending to be hanging from a noose, hiding his face from the sunlight and offering his hand for someone to take. It's refreshing to see that, as a man, we don't need to just pick what's made for a man anymore, we can expand our horizons and wear what we want, whether that be womenswear or menswear, as long as we like the way it looks and the way it captures our personalities.
