Acne Studios' 2017 Resort Collection Is an Ode to Counterculture

Inspired by the Grateful Dead and the Deadheads.

Acne Studios has recently unveiled its 2017 resort collection via a runway presentation in Paris. “I love the counterculture around the Grateful Dead and the Deadheads who followed them,” says the brand’s creative director, Jonny Johansson. “I got thinking about what the daughter of a Deadhead would wear today, her self-possessed attitude, the freedom and fluidity of her clothing, the complexity of the prints, the futuristic edge.”

The designer plays with proportions by pairing a roomy blazer with a sheer, floor-length skirt, while a long white dress is styled with a bleached-out blouse. The tie-dye motif carries on onto a workwear-inspired denim ensemble and a handful of multicolor frocks. Also highlighted in the presentation is a selection of sock sneakers, Swedish clogs, as well as heels held by wraps of fabric. Browse the gallery above to check out all of the runway looks.
