The Acne Resort 2012 Collection Features Laid-Back Combinations

The Acne Resort 2012 collection is awash in laid-back layered fashion. Models walked down the runway in vibrant separates worn atop more muted pieces, such as the robin's egg blue skirt worn over the plum pants in the first image.

Color blocking is still a major theme for next spring; Acne models were outfitted in color-popping combinations of orange and blue, burned orange and gray, and mint green and tan. Stylists kept each look light and laid-back by varying textures and fabrics. In nearly each image, a model is wearing a light, breathable fabric with a far heavier one.

One common theme woven throughout the Acne Resort 2012 collection is that of layering pants beneath dresses. Gone are the slim leggings we saw all year; instead, denim, cotton and even linen take up the charge.
