Acne went upscale ever during the London Fashion Week, presenting its Spring/Summer 2011 collection in a private runway show in Kensington Palace in the old apartment of Lord Snowden and Princess Margaret.

“I always wanted to do an apartment show, I love this mix of salon and show and I have always loved Lord Snowdon – so somehow it seemed like the perfect choice,” said Acne creative director and founder Jonny Johansson.

The Swedish label presented a new line of accessories– handbags and sunglasses– for the first time on the runway show. Tim Banks of provided a colorful description of the scene:

“Photographs of old-school glamour-puss Margaret by then-husband Lord Snowdon covered the walls, and the distant thumping was surely the sound of her flipping in her grave as a parade of serious teens filed by in Acne’s casually diffident clothing. You could imagine the old girl snarling, “Damn hippies.” That was, after all, partly the reaction Johansson was courting,” Mr. Banks observed.

Some outfits which got a good deal of attention featured leather studded with freshwater black pearls.
