Mr Porter X Acne: Capsule collection

As award season draws near and excuses to dress up and celebrate fast approaches, it’s reassuring to come across the new evening wear capsule collection from Acne Studios and Mr Porter.

The 14 piece collection based around the classic tuxedo, features smoking jackets, trousers, an overcoat, formal shirting as well as bow ties and shoes. As expected there’s an elegant mix of luxurious fabrications accompanied by great attention to detail. Bespoke jacquard fabrics and silks are used alongside wool and velvet, offering a pleasurable and lavish feel you’d expect and wish for. This collection provides everything a gent could need for evening attire.

Acne’s founder, Mr Johnny Johansson, believes that with the tuxedo ‘everything becomes elegant’ – I think I would have to agree with him on that.
