Upcycled denim and voluminous silhouettes are among the ingredients in Acne Studios’ homage to ’90s denim, further cementing the brand as one to watch in the luxury streetwear space.
The Swedish luxury label released its Spring/Summer 2019 Blå Konst denim collection this month, a range of “workwear silhouettes and ’90s Americana archetypes.”
The collection features the brand’s signature 1996 and 1997 jeans styles for men and women in various colors and washes, including pink, true black, soft black, dark, mid and light blue and marble blue.
Additionally, for spring the brand is introducing new vintage patchwork versions of the straight fit jeans made out of upcycled denim. Patchwork is carried into two new circle skirts, offered as knee- and ankle-length versions.
Jean jackets are a core part of the line. Acne Studios refreshes its 1998 men’s jean jacket—a classic hip length jacket with relaxed shoulders—with the same seasonal colors and washes as the jean range. For women, the collection offers the 1999 slightly cropped jean jacket with a boxy body and the 2000, a longer version with soft shoulders and welt pockets.
The collection is rounded out with nostalgic varsity jackets in both wool and denim, a patchwork T-shirt dress, raglan hoodies, nylon belts and a two-tone denim bucket hat. Tonal color blocking, sporty striped elasticated trims and sewn-on patches are carried throughout the range.
