As silver and bronze-painted models floated down the ACW* runway, collection pieces including techni-fabric jackets, gilded trousers and large oversized shoulder bags soon followed. Veiled headpieces extended from the crown to just below the shoulders and included zip-front face placement. Signature ACW* detailing included the brand’s ‘box motif’ iconography, structured knitwear and sleek outerwear.
The highlight of the collection was an exclusive Eastpak collaboration that debuted with ‘Look 16.’ The head-to-toe olive green look comprised an ACW* patchwork hoodie meticulously half-placed over a long sleeve top and matching sweatpants. The collaboration backpack showcased heavy canvas construction, weave contrast and rubberization, with ACW* x Eastpak logo pull straps, welded pockets and an item style number on a greyscale strip on the exterior back.
This collection marks the first season of an exclusive partnership with Eastpak, and incorporates 100% vegan and water-repellant development, and 100% recycled linings. ACW* custom fabrication and pentimento painting techniques are also present, with monochromatic and block-colorway bags to be made available.
Access to the ACW* x Eastpak collaboration will be announced soon, so stay tuned for more exclusive details.
