Acne Studios took to Paris Fashion Week Men’s for Fall/Winter 2020 to showcase its latest collection that’s inspired by artificial intelligence.

The progressive collection used artificial intelligence as its start point, enlisting the generative artist Robbie Barrat to compose a fresh take on various signature Acne Studios designs. Thousands of pieces from the label’s archive were fed into various neural networks and generative systems, with some intentionally being incorrectly inputted to create an organized mistake, before being rendered into an initial product that did not exist. From there, creative director Jonny Johansson and his team created final products based on these amalgamative renderings.

Johansson stated in his press release that “it is amazing to see that artificial intelligence can be freeing as a creative tool. I wanted the collection to be alive with new possibilities for how we wear clothes, while also being grounded in strange reality.” As a result, the runway show presented perforated shirts that referenced digital glitches, polo shirts without buttons (as the neural network did not understand buttons), and distorted snake prints covering the entirety of suits and oversized cape-like coats.

Elsewhere, Acne Studios delivered a heavy dose of leather with its overshirts, blazers and trousers, as well as a number of nods to its heritage with various boot-cut trousers and outerwear that takes minimalism to new heights, deleted of details to instead focus on the asymmetrical drawstrings and off-kilter storm flap.

Take a look at Acne Studios’ FW20 Paris Fashion Week presentation in the gallery above, and expect the collection to release in the coming months at retailers such as SSENSE.
