The Acne Studios Fall 2014 Collection is hoping for stifling temperatures with an offering that boasts bright colors and beachy cuts. Although the collection looks like a splash of summer, it hones in on body-wrapping thermal outerwear. The shaved shearling could be the strongest ensemble the brand puts together, featuring a sleeveless back coat and a crisp white leather anorak lined in curly gray lambs wool.

The use of material in conjunction with how it's draped is definitely a selling point. Though the pieces have a clean, purist flair, this season's creative director Jonny Johansson makes a strong case for wild patterns and prints.

Swirling graphics are inspired by waves, which in addition serves as a key motif that's also printed on tent-like anoraks and micro-popcorn tweed intarsias.
