ACNE IN CONJUNCTION WITH CANDY MAGAZINE LAUNCH A TRANSVESTITE, TRANSGENDER AND CROSS-DRESSING COLLECTION OCTOBER 2010
Together with Acne Studios, Luis Venegas Editor in Chief of Candy Magazine has created a collection of three shirts. Working on the idea of a classic western shirt, but playing with detail and proportion, the end result is a fun take on masculine versus feminine. All styles are all offered in silk crepe and Italian denim; the later in two washes, stonewashed and bleached. The shirts are named after one of Luis favourite TV series, Dynasty. The shirt with a dramatic bow at the neck is called "Alexis" as a tribute to Joan Collin's role. The one with big sleeves reminded Luis of the role Linda Evans played so it's called "Krystle" and the shirt with ruffles at neck and wrists has the playful personality of Heather's Locklear role and is called "Sammy Jo."
