Daniel Silver For Acne

London-based artist Daniel Silver has collaborated with Acne to launch a small AW11 capsule collection that stands in stark contrast to the label's usual design aesthetic. The tribal-inspired range features raw fabrics such as painted leather with exotic prints and a beautiful colour palette of brights.
Jonny Johansson, co-founder of the Acne collective says: “What I am fascinated with Daniel, is the similarity of how we work, we both like to explore what is contemporary. It’s not a modernist thing but more of a neo-classical style with a re-interpretation of classical forms in a contemporary manner. The collaboration stemmed from a shoot we did in Daniel’s studio in London, I loved his usage of texture and color – Daniel has a great sensibility for art. So for this capsule collection we used a lot of Daniel’s colors and art works. Fabrics are slightly raw and tribal in style, Daniel has a strong relationship with Africa and so we embraced this in the collection, there is painted leather, a lot of print and a lot of naive texture.

The collection will be available in stores from October.
