Swedish design and British heritage combine in a collaboration of two iconic, yet contrasting houses: Acne Studios and Mulberry.
Inspired by friendship and freedom, the Acne Studios x Mulberry collection consists of bags and leather goods which marry together the ethos of each brand. Acne Studios’ high-end hipster blueprint is mixed with Mulberry’s classic craft to form a unique pairing.
To launch the partnership, a new logo has been especially created to incorporate both labels. The design features Mulberry’s signature emblem tree decorated with the letters of Acne Studios which are scattered like leaves and stamped on the bags.
At first glance the range appears to be a classic Mulberry collection with satchels and top-handle Bayswater styles in smooth leather. Look again and you’ll spot Acne Studios trademark oversized Musubi bow and crossbody bags with logo-lettering emblazoned on the strap — offering the side of cool Acne Studios is accustomed to.
The subtle blend of style creates statement bags exuding with everyday appeal. From the shopper to the mini bag and the scotchgrain laptop case, the collection wouldn’t look out of place on the Mulberry woman or the Acne Studios aficionado.
Whether in black croc-effect with multiple buckles or soft salmon pink, each covetable carrier and luxe leather accessory is sure to be a collaborative hit.
The Acne Studios x Mulberry collection will launch on November 5; Mulberry.com
