Fashion News: Acne Studios’s interpretation of Hilma af Klint

ACNE STUDIOS Spring/Summer 2014

Acne Studios created a capsule collection for the season of S/S 2014 which is an interpretation of Swedish abstract artist Hilma af Klint’s artwork. Creative Director, Jonny Johansson, got inspired from the paintings of the artist from the early 20th century creating a ready-to-wear collection consisting of astonishing patterns and colours. Af Klint is an influential name of the late 19th – early 20th century. Her work represents a canon of non-objective art built upon opposites and contradictions. Because of her believe that her artwork is meant for humanity of the future, her work weren’t available for the public until 20 years had passed from her death.

The S/S 2014 capsule collection includes men’s shirts, fleece, scarves and bags. The collection is available online and in the Acne Studios stores starting this month.
