i want: Acne Studios Fall 2010 – 2011 Dresses

Acne Studios Fall 2010 - 2011 Dresses
Style names: Ara, Pluto, Omega

I’m loving these dresses from Acne for fall 2010.  Ara, the short, sexy leather number would be a great edition to my closet that is lacking shorter hems.  It sounds divine after reading the description.

Strapless, short and futuristic leather A-line bustier dress with a zipped detailed skirt. Inner top body is built up like a corset with bonings. Inner grosgrain ribbon with hook and eye closure holds the waist. Skirt part has two front zippers with inserts, which allows for skirt width adjustments. Hemline finishes just below the hips. Fit is short and narrow

The drapey Pluto and Omega are my typical hemline and great for the office.

Acne Studios Fall 2010 - 2011 Dresses
Style names: Alpha, Atlas, Atlantis

I love the silk styles Alpha and Atlantis are just great LBDs.  I’ve recently discovered that the key to wearing silk dresses is about wearing some shapewear or a great slip underneath.    Atlas is another fun short dress that uses a stretch crepe fabric for the top, the bust and skirt are in a fused stiff fabric.

i want: Ruched Shoulder Dress by Lanvin ♥ Acne

I posted about the new Lanvin ♥ Acne 2010 collection for women previously on I want – I got. I really love the grey ruched shoulder dress the most out of the collection.

Lanvin ♥ Acne 2010

Lanvin ♥ Acne 2010
The Lanvin Acne denim collaboration that started with the Spring 2009 collection continues. It must be a yearly endeavor because I was wondering when the next update would be. It looks like they cut out the Men’s version of the line as I don’t see it on the shop.acnestudios.com website.

Lanvin ♥ Acne 2010

I really like the draped denim dress, they really look like Lanvin pieces

I don’t think Holt Renfrew will be stocking this season of Lanvin ♥ Acne after seeing how many pieces were left at Now or Never time and Last Call. But I will confirm for sure. You can purchase the Lanvin ♥ Acne 2010 collection at the Acne Online Shop.

Pose lace-up ankle boots by Acne

Pose lace-up ankle boots by Acne

They say these are boots.  I’m not sure how to describe them but they seem like a summer shoe to me.  I love all the laces and the fact that you have to be committed to lacing them up to own them, similar to Doc Martens.  It doesn’t look like there is easy zipper access on these.

These are available at shop.acnestudios.com and net-a-porter.com

Alber Elbaz for Acne Jeans

Alber is designing denim.

Designed for city dwellers high and low, the reinvented classic tuxedo jackets, trenches, charming minidresses, and cuffed jeans are sure to satisfy style mongers of every taste—if not every budget.

Coming to a store near you in November with prices like jeans ranging from $550 to $650, coats from $1,200 to $1,500 and Jewelry and handbags above $1,500. Lanvin certainly isn’t cheap. I imagine Holt’s will carry them.

EDIT: It’s been confirmed, Holt’s will carry this line.
