On the heels of the brand’s Starter Black Label collaboration, Acne Studios takes the stage at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 for another range of progressive menswear looks. The collection sees the Swedish brand embracing off-kilter appliqué to further distinguish its fashion-forward garments,

Seasonal staples, like lightweight overshirts and slouchy blazers, have been rebuilt with wanton flair — one shirt sports enormous barrel sleeves and partial contrast stitching, while a pale blazer appears untouched until one considers the notched lapel that pokes into the collar. There are more conventional options, of course, which include a warm-hued gingham check blazer and a short-sleeved blue shirt with small black buttons.

Monochrome slacks anchor some of the more adventurous items, which range from fully iridescent parkas to wool blazers with lapels crafted from the shiny polyurethane detailing. Patterned shirts swap buttoned plackets for plastic zippers while fringed ponchos, skirts, cardigans and tank tops provide a more organic counterpart to the paneled trench coats and patterned shirting. Clunky boots, sleek running sneakers and open-toe mules serve to upgrade classic footwear shapes with a contemporary bent, a worthy counterpart to the experimentation above.

Check out the runway looks and detailed footwear shots above.
