The chunky trend has no signs of slowing down in 2019 and while sneakers have held prestige on the streets, Acne Studios is about to change that. Presenting its men’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection at this seasons Paris Fashion Week, the Swedish fashion house debuted a range of new footwear silhouettes, reinventing the chunky sneaker trend that has dominated much of the industry last year.
Amongst futuristic graphics, vinyl pieces and relaxed outerwear, guests eyes were glued to the floors as models flooded the runway with bold footwear. Most notably, it was a moon boot cross gumboot rendition that has garnered attention with the pairing of wide-legged pants, and psychedelic prints – giving us strong ’70s go-go vibes.
Featuring a high-top leather upper in black, brown, white and green, the moon boot style was set upon a platform-like, teethed-sole. It shouldn’t work, but it does.
Following up on its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, the new season threads are said to be inspired by different counter-cultures.
“I’m into this whole bohemian, intellectual, political approach to fashion, and I think the outsider approach to fashion is more interesting now than before, because fashion is really out there [thanks to] the Internet and the [media],” designer Jonny Johansson told WWD.
Set to drop from August 2019, we’ll be first in line to give the new style a go.
