High fashion meets outdoor style

Swedish brands Acne Studios is pairing up with outdoor label Fjällräven, revisiting some of the brand’s most iconic pieces. Amongst the designs is the label’s cult Kånken backpack, in eleven unisex designs.

"Swedes have a very particular relationship with [Fjällräven]. I'm very proud that it's a Swedish brand and I wanted to show our love for Fjällräven to the world", explains Acne Studios' Creative Director Jonny Johansson. In order to produce a collection with pieces that are, in the words of the designer, both "naïve and fresh", Acne Studios "asked young people to design their vision of the clothes". Ultimately, bright shades came to dominate in a line where even the military prints are multicoloured and sleeping bags look like high-end accessories.
"The result is a unique collection which combines the timeless functionality of Fjällräven with Acne Studios' artistic approach, all while creating something completely new," says Henrik Andersson, head of innovation and design at the outdoor brand.

The collaboration will be available to purchase from 6th September 2018, with pieces ranging in price from 130 to 1,100 euros. You will also be able to find the collection at the 55 Acne Studios stores around the world, on both labels' e-commerce websites and in Fjällräven boutiques in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Toronto, Oslo and Soho, New York.
