Acne Studios Epitomizes Playfulness With Latest Repurposed Capsule
Reimagining woven silk, jersey, fleece and eco-printed denim fabrics.
Acne Studios has returned with the latest capsule for its repurposed series. Taking roots in 2021, the new series reflects upon past collections to turn excess textiles into new capsules.
Titled Seasons 7 & 8, the latest collection continues this mission by reimagining woven silk, jersey, fleece and eco-printed denim fabrics. Featuring a playfully crafted aesthetic, collection pieces include scribble-like drawings on rockets, stick figures and abstract phrases on pieces like jersey t-shirts, fleece sweatsuits, silk shirts and patched jeans. To further recast these fabrics, garments feature eco-bleached, overdyed and eco-stonewashed effects to create a worn look.
The collection comes to life through soft shades of pink, violet, faded gray and baby blue. A cream and wheat-colored patchwork bomber jacket alongside an off-white Nappa leather tank top are collection highlights.
“What struck me about the Repurposed collection is that it is designed with a social conscience, and with several good intentions in mind,” said Olu Odukoya, an artist and creative director who curated the campaign. “All these clothes are designed so that every single person can wear them, regardless of gender or identity. For me, that feels really modern, powerful, and joyful – and that’s what youth is all about.”
Check out the collection in the gallery above that will be available soon in Acne Studios stores and on the brand’s website.
