Acne Founder Previews Spring 2010 Collection, Credits Mother's Wardrobe for Success

>> Even though Fashion Month doesn't kick off until next week, Acne jump-started the Spring 2010 spirit Tuesday night in London with their spirituality-themed Spring 2010 presentation, full of long flowing dresses with Swarovski crystals clustered at acupuncture pressure — pictures here.

Nestled in Dossier's fourth issue — which features Leigh Lezark photographed by co-founder Skye Parrott on the cover, an upstate New York dinner party editorial with Shannan Click, Bianca Balti, and New York personalities styled by Kate Lanphear, and is out during New York Fashion Week next week — Acne founder Jonny Johansson chats about how he went from 100 pairs of jeans in the '90s to a cult empire built on those same jeans . . .

He can thank his mother:

There's something iconic about jeans. My mother doesn't walk around in couture gowns. Even though I like couture and it's inspirational, in the end when you work in fashion, the older you get, the more routine you get — the more you work with your own experience.  I work a lot with my own home, what I stumble upon and my mother's wardrobe. I do my mother's colors all the time. She likes a certain couple of colors, and I think because she always wore black, I always work with black. I always work with a kind of lavender because she liked it. I've explored other color charts, but left alone I will always go back to those colors.
