For the collection, the two brands have collaborated to enhance each other’s products. For example, Acne Studios has reimagined Mulberry’s celebrated Scotchgrain Bag to have multiple leather buckle strap fastenings and oversized metal hardware. In addition to bags the collection includes a range of leather goods in either Scotchgrain or pink grainy leather. There is a laptop case, a medium sized pouch, a coin purse, a small zip-around wallet and a Scotchgrain lanyard.
Jonny Johansson, creative director of Acne Studios says of the collaboration, “This is a collection about friendship and our freedom as brands to do what we want to do. It is like a conversation between Acne Studios and Mulberry, one that is founded in mutual respect and a desire to make great product.”
“The Acne Studios and Mulberry collaboration is a perfect manifestation of the spirit of both our brands. It showcases Acne Studios’ wonderful Swedish design ethos and celebrates both the British heritage and modernity of Mulberry,” explains Mulberry CEO Thierry Andretta.
The collection will be available internationally starting 5th November at selected Acne Studios and Mulberry stores. Click here for a list of participating stores.
