Swedish label Acne Studios unveiled their latest capsule collection today featuring items inspired by classic American diners and bars. The brand goes retro pop with bold graphic motifs on modern staples and accessories. The coolest part has to be that rollerskates are even a part of the line. You won’t find any 50’s poodle skirts or pink cardigans here though, as all the items are contemporarily unisex. It’s like CW’s Riverdale meets American Graffiti.
Stand out pieces include a ranger style beige/brown work shirt with a patch of a Northwest style landscape, seemingly Twin Peaks inspired, and baggy work twill shorts available in both red or brown. While the pieces would be out of place at any real diner along the highway, they are solid statement pieces for the cheeky urbanite who likes a bit of humor added to their style.
Acne’s Diner Collection is available online now.
