Fashion: ACNE Snowdon Blue

As I gear up for my trip to NYC next month, I've been trying to make a plan for what I should put on the agenda. Impossible Conversations at The Met is an obvious trip, but I also wanted to check out the Acne store, more specifically to check out the limited edition shirts they are doing in collaboration with their first book, Snowdon Blue. The book came about to celebrate the photographic work of Lord Snowdon.
The book contains 61 portraits of some famous faces wearing the signature blue shirting, with everyone from David Bowie to Manolo Blahnik. What I like about the concept is that it shows how a classic such as this trancends through all ages, sex, and ethnicities. Another exciting part about the launch is that it will be accompanied by a touring exhibit at the ACNE stores in Paris, London and Stockhold - which began on May 3rd.
There are eight limited edition blue shirts to choose from, and so far I am abosolutely drawn to the pajama styled silk creation. Can't wait to get my hands on it! (See below)

This marks my 100th post. YIPEE!
