DISCLOSURE : ACNE STUDIOS STRINDBERG COLLECTION21 March 2020
For its new womens SS20 collection, Acne meets Strindberg
The Acne Studios Women’s Spring / Summer 2020 collection is about the independence of mind and spirit from living within nature, with the countryside as a constant lure particularly for city-dwellers.
A special collection that includes printed abstract paintings by 19th century Swedish famous artist August Strindberg.
“I love August Strindberg’s paintings of nature. He would paint them when he had writer’s block. It’s like nature was the answer for him. When you use them as prints, they become abstract. It’s normally very hard to use prints of paintings without it being obvious and cliché, but these prints of Strindberg become like another pattern that connects to the whole collection,” says Jonny Johansson, Creative Director of Acne Studios.
The collection has been photographed by Johnny Dufort with the wish to explore the dream of living a contemporary life within nature.
The Acne Studios Women’s Spring / Summer 2020 collection is available in stores and on acnestudios.com.
