Acne: White art / T-shirt project

Acne are pleased to announce their second collaboration in the series of the White art / T-shirt project. A project which sees Acne collaborate with a selection of their favourite working artists who were given a brief to reinterpret the classic white t-shirt. Produced in a limited and numbered edition all proceeds made from the project will go towards a fund for the future of new artists.

Debut t-shirt in the series came from fine artist Stefan Brüggemann, who was inspired by the concept of ‘reversed inverted’ producing print that was printed both on the inside and out in order for the t-shirt to be worn either way.

The second installment comes from British artist and 2009 turner prize nominee Lucy Skaer. Skaers’ T-shirt uses two wood cut prints, the first taken from a 15th C illustration from Sebastian Brant’s ‘Narrenschiff’ and the second from an antique chair Skaer found. The final result is a fun minimal tee using a bright summer blue print on the front and a persimmon print on the back. 

All t-shirts are now available from http://acnewhitearttshirtproject.com

Menswear: Acne Angora Styling

Acne’s a/w 2012-13 collection utilized grunge’s signature oversized silhouettes and layered styling in a selection of striking fluffy angora knits at Paris fashion week last week. Utilizing a fresh colour palette of pastel mint green, grey blue, vibrant persimmon and white Acne gives these classic knits a contemporary twist. Staying true to grunge aesthetics Acne almost haphazardly layers garments together, but it really works especially when they team two angora knits together combing a mint green cardigan with a thick grey blue pull over.
