Designer Crush #1

So I'm back again, and full of inspiration. Don't ask me why, maybe it's because I bought a load of French (fashion) magazines to kill the time while I'm waiting for my laundry, maybe the French wine, the amazing boutiques in Paris or maybe I'm just eating too many baguettes. No kidding, I don't eat many baguettes honestly, I prefer crêpes;-)

But back on track again. I was looking through all these great magazines, and making little wish lists that I may or may not afford of great designer brands. So I thought, why not share it with you guys! I do feel that my blog is a bit more beauty than fashion, so I'd like to have this as a weekly post to compensate the overload of beauty posts. This week in the designer in the spotlight: Acne.

No, I'm not talking about pimples, blemishes, or the well known skin problem acne. Non. I'm talking about the amazing, über cool, Swedish brand Acne. They became very famous with their jeans, but their clothing, shoe and accessory (including bags) collection is not to be underestimated! Pricey? Yes. Worth it? Double yes! This brand totally represents my style, and just me as a person. Very simplistic, sophisticated, minimalistic, young, feminine, edgy, easy going, and yet very chic in my opinion.

I've seen the Acne cashmere sweaters in store, online and in magazines, and they are just to die for! The quality is amazing, the design, fit and color range has nothing to be remarked on. Definitely something that is on my winter to-buy list this year, so saving up for that already. It seems to me like a timeless piece, something I would wear a lot, and something that will last for a long time. As greedy as I am, I of course have a whole bunch of other Acne items on my list. I tried to limit myself, but hey, a brand as amazing as this one, it's hard to stop myself ha ha;-)

FILIPPA CASH CORAL MELANGE €440 | CINDY INDIGO INDIGO €410 

MAPE PETITE FOREST GREEN €950



FLEX LONDON €190 | FLEX S BASEMENT €180 | NEEDLE MARINE €200


CYPRESS CON SOLID BLACK €500 | CARD BORDEAUX €70 | LAURIE PLUM €360

  1. If you had to choose just one item, which one would it be?

    1. That would be a question that I cannot answer haha. I already made a selection of all the things they had, and this is it. But my top 3 would be the suit jacket, the coral cashmere sweater and the boots (in no particular order)! What about you? :-) x

  3. I've never bought anything from Acne but their stuff looks great.
    I don't know if it's just me, but I would really love to read a couple of posts about your time in Paris, I am uber jealous and would love to hear about what you are getting up to and what you are enjoying and what you're not. I know, I'm nosey, but I don't think I'm the only one who would LOVE to spend some time living in Paris. Plus, I've spent along time living abroad, and I know that there are always two sides to it, and it's not always all the glitz and glam that people imagine.
    Hope you're enjoying it anyway.
