I’ve had the time to work on design, and these elements from my subconscious are coming to the forefront of my mind. Fashion Designer Jonny Johansson presented his Spring Summer 2022 menswear collection for ACNE Studios via digital lookbook. This is the most personal collection for the designer, because of lockdown, he’d had more time for dreaming, and for getting closer to making clothes.
I love the juxtaposition between hard uniforms and pieces that are softer or more feminine. I have such respect for traditional menswear, but I always think there’s something about it that needs to be questioned and changed. I love the tailored pieces that at first look super normal, then you realize there’s the sheen of Lurex in it, like a wool shorts suit, or flared tailored pants with a pinstripe of Lurex.
