Jonny Johansson of Acne Studios draws inspiration from a range of distinctly Scandinavian influences for the Swedish label’s latest 2016 fall/winter collection shown at Paris Fashion Week. Looking back at the nine months of military service that he underwent as a youth, he combined this memory with pieces of army surplus garments that he chanced upon on the streets. Recalling the distinct 1940’s aesthetic of his military-issued uniform, Johansson has also incorporated design cues from the folk costume of the Swedish Lapland region where he spent a decade of his childhood. Known as the Västerbottensdräkten, elements of lavender and pink hues, wavy graphics, and embellished eyelets inform the range’s pieces. The latest collection also plays with an array of textures that includes knitwear, woollen coats, suede items and even vinyl-like pants.
