The Swedish label and the publication’s editor, Luis Venegas, have designed a collection of three androgynous shirts. Based on the classic western shirt, the three styles are named after Venegas’ favourite show Dynasty, with each design carrying the name of one of its characters; Alexis, Sammy Jo and Krystle.
“Luis energy really reminds of the energy we had when we started Acne,” says Acne’s creative director Jonny Johansson. “He seems to be this endless well of ideas and creativity. It is something that instantly attracted me to him. We share an openness to new ideas and expressions, so to work with him felt natural from the start. I’m in this business to have fun and to enjoy myself, and I feel that Luis is too. This collection is a playful collaboration and a celebration of diversity. It touches on ideas I have always played with when designing for Acne, the tension between male and female and what happens when you shift things around a bit. This project has been so much fun.”
The collection will be available in October.
