EXCLUSIVE: Acne Studios Introduces New Drop Series Made With Repurposed Fabrics

The label launches the sustainability initiative with a capsule range of denim and leather.

As the fashion industry continues to explore ways to make the market more circular and sustainable, Acne Studios is now introducing a new drop series with garments made using repurposed fabric. The new announcement not only stresses the importance of eco-friendly practices, but also highlights the growing influence of drop culture pioneered by the world of streetwear.

“This new series is about finding creative ways to be more resourceful. Acne Studios was founded on design experimentation, and today we want to use our creativity to take positive steps towards becoming more mindful,” creative director Jonny Johansson shared in a statement. Creating new garments from already-existing fabrics, each drop will focus on bringing out inventive solutions through the use of different materials and treatments.

Each forthcoming collection will incorporate different methods and solutions. Some pieces will be deconstructed to create new silhouettes, while others will be cut out from excess fabrics. The inaugural capsule collection features tweed, denim and leather, emerging on women’s core essential items like blazers and trousers. A fitted jacket arrives with two different tweeds, along with a contrasting sleeve and zipper teeth at the pockets. Meanwhile, an oversized trucker adds functionality with detachable denim sleeves. Trousers and a skirt are crafted using panels of denim, tweed, tailoring cloth and leather.

Take an official first look at the inaugural capsule collection below. The repurposed range will be available in stores and at Acne Studios’ web store on September 24.
