The chrome electric guitars applied to destructured masculine blazers, tops and calf-length trousers were a clear sign: the new mood at Acne Studios beats with an alternative rock energy, somewhere between ’80s electro and ’90s rave culture. The models resembled ravers, all frayed mesh knits and mini-dresses and platform split-toe boots, or colourful snakeskin pirate boots with little velvet tunics. The legs were always on show, whether revealed by the high splits in high-waist mid-calf length skirts paired with psychedelic t-shirts, masculine jackets worn as a dress, pleated mini-skirts or by visible panties. Optical polka-dot prints decorated coats and long dresses fastened at the back with guitar-like straps.
