Niclas wears H&M x Liberty. Photographed by Adeline Mai.
Since 1875, Liberty has been producing printed fabrics in the heart of London’s Regent Street. Liberty’s floral, graphic, and geometric prints have stood the test of time — from the Victorian era to the ‘60s psychedelic rock scene — and they still remain as relevant and stylish as ever.

Thank you to The Ludlow for allowing us to shoot in your beautiful new hotel.
When we had the chance to sit with Julie Kandalec — celeb nail artist extraordinaire and the creative director of Manhattan nail art salon Paintbox — we couldn’t resist getting her to devise a few how-tos for us. This one’s inspired by the swirly black and white pattern that graced a few looks at the Acne FW14 show, and will soon hit stores.
We love this look. Here’s how to get it on your nails:
Click on the images to see photos and instructions full screen.
Apply base coat, two coats of white, and top coat to seal it.
Draw an S-shape in black with a liner brush on each nail.
Add a thinner line beside the S-shape to add dimension. Allow it to dry well before painting on a final top coat.
And there you have it — an Acne FW14 print-inspired mani you can do at home.
Get the look with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish in White On and Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer in Noir Primitif.
Stay tuned this week for more nail art how-tos from Paintbox creative director Julie Kandalec.
