Pre-Shopping Event: Acne


Originally established as a creative consultancy, Acne (Ambition to Create Novel Expressions) was born when Jonny Johansson’s jeans designs became a hit with his clients. For a casual-cool update, look out for biker jackets, It-girl boots and signature skinny denim.

For the next three days, you have the privilege to shop these items before they are available to all customers. Click here to be transferred directly.


The ‘Rita’ jacket has become a firm favorite with the style set, and has been seen on the likes of Alexa Chung and Blake Lively. Updated in shearling, this tobacco and light-gray version is made for fall.

For the uber-hip among you, Acne revamps its cult  jacket for the new season in zesty yellow. Finished with silver zips and a luxuriously soft cream interior, it will seriously amplify your round-the-clock wardrobe. Who said cold-weather dressing can’t be colorful? This vibrant colour is available at net-à

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for H&M

Trish SummervilleTrish Summerville with models in her collection.

Trish Summerville is behind the costumes for one of the year’s most eagerly awaited films, David Fincher’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. To celebrate, costume designer Trish Summerville has created a women’s collection for H&M, full of pieces inspired by the film’s anti-heroine, Lisbeth Salander.
The 30-piece collection has the dark urban feel that defines her character, with leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies all in industrial shades of black, grey, worn white or dark red.

The collection debuts exclusively at Colette in Paris on November 28, with its own dedicated in-store area and will be available from December 14 in Divided departments in around 180 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online.

Dolce & Gabbana Men Now at Mr Porter

Dolce Men at Mr porter

Finally, Dolce & Gabbana Men is available at Mr Porter!

The F/W 2011 collection is dedicated to Bryan Ferry (he is even on a special icon T-shirt). But the Italian duo didn’t copy the man who is said to be one of rock’s best dressed singers, they only took some inspirations. The models walked to Ferry’s music on the runway in well-tailored suits, tuxedos and skinny suspenders. For the more casual days, Dolce & Gabbana offers cool leather jackets, striped sweaters, cropped pants and distressed denim.



For the launch of the brand at Mr Porter, three Italian screen stars were photographed in those must-haves for men. One, you will recognize for sure: Michele Venitucci, my colleague for the Closed F/W 2011 campaign shoot.
