|Salmon mohair sweater from Acne Studios FW 2017 Menswear|
It’s lunchtime at the office cafeteria. The assortment of managers and employees were ready to eat in style wearing designer Jonny Johansson’s Acne Studio Fall 2017 collection. Note the brown bag lunches and the newspapers rolled up under a man’s arm. In reality, those items are satchels, not lunches packed by the man, the girlfriend/wife or boyfriend/husband.
The headband on the opening model sings the notes of the ballerinos from Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2015 Men’s show.
The long hair and literal rose-colored glasses breathed of the 1970s. The mohair sweater was the color of salmon. The man held his brown bag lunch like Princess Diana used to hold her clutch purse.
Dressed all in camel brown, a man emanated swagger with his moody, Veronica Lake hair. The sporty pullover was injected with a dose of drama thanks to the expansive turndown collar. A Karl Lagerfeld version of this collar turned up on the opening ballerino.
The Mod turtlenecks and large, tinted-lens shades radiated with Audrey Hepburn’s glamorous take on the Mod style in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. One of these Mod businessmen even wore Tiffany blue-framed shades as his legs formed scissors.
The shadowed silhouettes of the men stood stark on the walls and full of as much psychological weight as Peter Pan’s shadow.
