When I learnt of Acne's 'Art T-shirt project' I thought I'd revisit and refresh my awareness of the (oddly-named) cool as a cucumber brand.
Flicking through images from the papers & online biographies, it hit me. I'd only flipping sat next to Jonny Johansson a few months ago on the train to London. I knew I'd recognised the delectable Creative Director.
"The project sees an artist (including the name to watch; Stefan Bruggemann) create a T-shirt for the foundation - set up in collaboration with former model and fashion editor Laura Burlington - which will then be sold to fund up to five emerging artists' first monograph." (Vogue)
Broken into two parts, the launch was double the usual pazazz. Fortunate enough to have attened an Acne affair I know too well how outlandishly opulent the atmosphere can be. A themed second half had a SUPER title; “Fantasia Fiesta Flamenco”, a celebration of the collaboration in association with Candy Magazine and the transvestite trangender and cross dressing collection.
How I wish I'd have gone, especially with Jodie Harsh (such a darling), Jonathan Saunders and Jonny Woo. Too cool to comprehend.
Trailing Acne's recent shirt range made with the idea of positively re-defining gender. Luis Venegas Editor in Chief of Candy Magazine and Acne creatively collaborated to produce a collection of gender-genius.

From Eva Longorias insanely monumental amount of changes (the hair!) to Kesha's cheap Ga-Ga immitation and Miley's mammary gland exposure, you couldn't fail to be be both amused and awe-struck at the array of style that just oozed energy and passion for the event.
My personal preferences;
Three. Socialite Hofit Golans wham-bam-thank-you-mam demure yet daring power piece from LFW label Falguni and Shane Peacock. She's always bang on the chic cash.
Two. Pop sensation Rihanna stole the show on and off the stage. Recently shedding her on the verge of tacky, blingy boldness with a twist of Topshop she has truly earnt her place as one of the 'Decades' Best Dressed Newcomers (Vogue). Her attention to detail in uncanny. Her Marchesa dress was a toile-triumph.
One. My ultimate is the newly-wed fash-forward. KP. She consistently left me green with envy at her clothing choices throughout the event, &does at most other events for that matter (whether it be a stylists work or otherwise). Dressed in Jeremy Scott paired with Sergio Rossi slingbacks, her outfit personified the spirit of MTV itself, a child of the 80s, slightly tacky but fucking cool.
Scott has also consistently left my imagination invigorated & whetted my 'wacky' penchant … my homage to the charismatic controversy magnet.
