A slight autumnal nuance has crept into London’s weather over the last couple of days. Never mind, the AW 2010 Aviator collection from ACNE awaits – a very good reason to visit the HUB fashion boutique this weekend in North London’s Stoke Newington.
Top fashion brand ACNE of Sweden travelled back to the 1920’s in search of inspiration for this autumn collection. Amelia Earhart – tomboy, adventurist, style icon and aviator animates the ACNE AW 2010 men’s and women’s collection. It’s creative, striking and wonderfully combines masculine and feminine – just like Amelia!
In putting together a wardrobe to suit her lifestyle (airplanes were very cold places in those days), she looked to sports that were more established at that time – the equestrian world in particular and also motor racing.
Hence the jodhpurs and the sheep-skin lined leather jackets, zipped of course. Her look ranged from military leather to glamorous evening dresses (befitting her celebrity status).
So with its usual elegance and creativity, ACNE brings us this autumn a fine collection of aviator jumpsuits with a feminine twist, pleated chiffon dresses and shirts, flowing scarves and zip front dresses in military style.
More Hub Fashion and accessories brands for women include Folk, Sessun, Humanoid and Mimi.
Tip: Take your boyfriend – the Hub Men’s boutique is just across the road! This award wining boutique has lots of really stlyish men’s fashion brands for casual wear including Barbour, Fred Perry, Lee, MHL and Nudie!
