Uggs östersund

A surprise operatic performance by The Hives frontman Pelle Almqvist spiked the energy at the opening of Jonny Johansson’s Acne show. Almqvist sang the Swedish poem “Till Havs,” which translates to “Out to Sea” and was the main inspiration for Johansson’s mariner references handled with a cool, blunt edge.Fast and furious, the models stormed by in a high-speed blur of white leather that was precision-sliced into strips on a great jacket and pants.

The film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last month, is a romantic comedy focused on the creation of the electronic personal massager: a medical device initially designed to cure the invented malady of female “hysteria” by inducing ‘hysterical paroxysm’ (or orgasm) in England at the apex of Victorian prudishness.
