Acne Postcard

Acne Postcard

 >> It's hard NOT to have a positive relationship with Acne.  They annoyingly don't get many things wrong.  Lovely collections with lovely pieces that get worn until they start to shrivel up.  Lovely stores.  Lovely magazine.  Lovely shows.  Lovely events.  Lovely people.  You get the idea.  




Therefore, it didn't take much to say YAY to participating in the joint Acne and Browns Postcard project that presents little city recommendations from bloggers accompanied by pretty pics of us wearing the new Acne pre-fall collection.  I naturally did London, along with Hanneli for New York, Elin Kling for Stockholm and Romy Frydman for Sydney.  I fuffed up the pretty picture bit namely because I cheated and didn't take my pictures in London.  Pressed for time, I had to bundle the clothes to Stockholm and do it there.  Oh well… it err… makes sense… you know, Acne's based in Stockholm and all…

I always find giving recommendations about London relevant only for about one week at a time when in another week, I'll probably give a different set of answers.  I still feel the same way about my restaurant recommendation of Spuntino though.  Fives words.  Beef and Bone Marrow Sliders.

There was a little shindig at Browns last week to usher in the new collection.  That's where I sneaked away a copy of Acne Paper to coo over on the weekend.  My mug was once again in the window.  I'm thinking Browns must be sick of seeing my name in their Shop24 window after the last Club Monaco onslaught. 



Here's one for the cheesy couples shot album… 


Here are a few more shots of me pilfering some Acne pre-fall, taken in L*O*N*D*O*N *nudge nudge wink wink*

    Amazing! What a great project to be part of. Acne is undoubtedly one of my top favourite brands. The jacket is incredible! Love the look of the fabric and how you’ve styled it! xx

    cheesy-schmeesy, I think others will agree with me that we love the BF!
    Its intersting to see the menswear counter to your style and how you mix it in with your own.

    Naja: That is an eerily close match… can never have too many chunky sweaters….
    Dreamy: It does weird me out a little… only because when blown up, it doesn’t end up looking like me….
