Work Of Art: Acne Pays Homage to Lord Snowdon With Snowdon Blue Collection
May 22, 2012
What does Acne, the fashion-forward Swedish label, have in common with Lord Snowdon, the British celeb photographer (not to mention ex of Princess Margaret)? They both love a good preppy blue button-down shirt. Just look at Snowdon’s portraits (see above) for proof. His signature style is to shoot each of his noble subjects, in a blue button down shirt, from the likes of Manolo Blahnik and Tony Blair to David Bowie. In the process, he proves every single person in the entire world looks good in one, don’t you agree?
In a genius move that makes total collaboration sense, Acne has created the Snowdon Blue capsule collection of eight button-down shirts you can get right now. Serious fans can also pick up a cool limited-edition coffee table book of the photographer’s portraits. The Acne x Snowdon shirts run from $220-$340– a relative steal for a work of art.
