The awkwardness and angst of adolescence is captured in high fashion form in the Acne Pre-Fall 2012 Collection. Pulling inspiration from what designer Jonny Johansson calls the "TV Generation," the line features pieces that emulate the past, with androgynous appeal connecting it to the future.
Toying with proportion and classic notions of femininity, the lookbook showcases outfits that pair oversized blazers with pencil skirts and silver minis with heavy chains, among other nontraditional ensembles. With shoes that border on kitschy, this might not be the perfect wardrobe for your 9-to-5, although the collection's pinstripe pieces would be a fine addition to any closet.
Showing that there's always room to play around with unconventional proportions and fabrics to add a little pizzazz, the Acne Pre-Fall 2012 Collection makes a grand statement about teen fashion from the past.
