Channelling a modern caveman, the fall/winter 2023 collection celebrates the shifting boundaries of menswear. Juxtaposing fabrics and cuts that traditionally skew feminine with those that once codified masculinity, the collection also blends craft-infused daywear with experimental evening wear for a new age of self-expression.

“When I work, it’s sort of like therapy. I’ve been thinking a lot about the masculine baggage that we drag along as guys, boys, men and I wanted to explore it for fall. The so-called rules of masculinity are changing. The contrast I built the collection on is simple: ultra-masculine versus ultra-feminine. I felt inspired by the new man, the new way of looking at things, and by men who can show vulnerability aesthetically. I was intrigued by the thought of a caveman being the most masculine thing and I used that as a contrast,” says Jonny Johansson, Creative Director, Acne Studios.
