Acne Studios is pleased to reveal a new capsule collection with unique prints inspired by emojis. The range plays with everyday objects that have taken on new life as emojis, representing them as isolated symbols on wardrobe staples such as sweatshirts, T-shirts, knitwear, caps and sneakers. The collection will be available from August in Acne Studios stores and on acnestudios.com.
Classic sweatshirt styles are given a new twist with highly detailed compact embroideries of oversized microphones, bananas and doughnuts. As an alternative, the pig’s nose and a brown swirl of mousse become small chest embroideries.
Hot dogs appear as a knitted pattern in a jacquard sweater, as well as printed on a heavy jersey T-shirt, while patches of square faces show what they’re thinking about on sweatshirts. There are also patches on a cap, and white sneakers with the graphics boldly printed down the side and toe.
The prices range from 120 to 400 Euros and the collection will launch in stores and on acnestudios.com beginning of August 2016.
