This spring, Acne Studios releases a distinctive capsule collection featuring creative director Jonny Johansson’s interpretation of Swedish abstract artist Hilma af Klint. Johansson has created shirts, fleece, and scarves with exceptional patterns and colors based on af Klint’s original paintings from the early 20th century. Af Klint wanted to visualize union and totality in an otherwise polarized world, such as male and female and light and darkness.
“The colors and the depth and beauty of Hilma af Klint’s universe will strike anyone who spends time with her art. Her story as a forgotten artist, who is suddenly being considered as one of the pioneers within abstract art, is dazzling. I feel very honored that the Hilma af Klint foundation gave me the freedom to create a small collection based on some of her most important work,” says Jonny Johansson, Acne Studios Creative Director.
The Hilma af Klint featured Spring/Summer 2014 collection is available in Acne Studios stores worldwide and on acnestudios.com from mid-March.
