The idea behind Acne's most recent collection was to create new products from pre-existing materials using specific fabrics that would automatically cut transportation's footprint. The selection is created by cutting and patching together a variety of materials: denim, tweed and leather. As Jonny Johansson, Acne's Creative Director, said in an interview, the new collection is about “finding creative ways to be more sustainable.” Acne Studio has at its core the drive to experiment with designs and use creativity to make positive steps towards becoming more mindful.
The brand has always been known for combining fabrics, volume and textures pushing beyond the limits of fashion and creativity. The first drop, launched September 24th, features houndstooth print jackets with bold zippers on the hems, side pockets, wool panel black, and tan patchwork pieces. Not to forget—the basic white t-shirts with Repurposed print on them. The final mood of the collection is defined by contrasting layers, colours and textiles that it almost makes the pieces look like a DIY collage.
