Acne Studios’s Vogue-inspired Spring Capsule Collection

Image

Eduardo García Benito’s graphic illustration of a woman’s face in profile, sketched for Vogue’s July 1931 cover, played muse for the vibrant prints featured throughout Jonny Johansson’s spring capsule collection for Acne Studios. A “Big Head” became known as part of the Spanish artist’s signature style—seen here with a tangle of curls and donning a jazz-age turtleneck—and took many attention-grabbing iterations on Vogue covers throughout the roaring twenties. For this project, Johansson softened and reworked this lesser-known cover image through the chalky lens of Cecil Beatons graphite prints, and splashed it across breezy summer dresses, voluminous skirts, street-smart T-shirts, court shoes, and even baseball caps. “I often come back to the Art Deco era,” says the designer, who keeps a copy of this particular vintage Vogue on his coffee table at home in Sweden. “It’s the definition of modernism and classism combined.”

My personal favourite is the black dress with the white text on it , if i was a women i would wear it definitely !! Check out the pics below !!
