PARIS — With Ruby Aldridge and Arizona Muse in the lineup Saturday afternoon at Hôtel Potocki, the Acne Studios Fall / Winter 2016 runway show was also going to be hit. The pair of runway veterans added class and an elegance that simply cannot be faked in this day and age. The label’s creative director Jonny Johansson cited the seminal punk rockers The Cramps on the brand’s Instagram, which accounted for amongst other things, PVC jumpsuits, slicked hair, and an exceptional runway soundtrack curated by Michel Gaubert. The occasion was riotous (read eccentric) in a way that only a Swedish fashion house can be. Joining Ruby and Arizona on the runway were a further four models from across the network including Caroline Reagan, Jay Wright, Sandra Schmidt, and Wangy.
