Acne’s first collection of shades strikes the brand’s signature balance of wearable and avant garde. The seven unisex styles include updated models of classics, like the aviator-esque Aviator, alongside the brand new oval-shaped Mustang and futuristic Mask models. The frames and lenses come in a variety of unique color combinations, such as the gold-on-gold Spitfires, the deep green lens option seen on the Library, and a Mask variety with an eye-popping purple color called mercure.
“We’ve always made eyewear pieces, but never before a full collection. I wanted to introduce new styles, and refine our previous designs, to create Acne Studios Eyewear. For this first collection, I’ve drawn on my role models in music as inspiration and reference – it’s up to the customer to guess who,” said Acne Studios creative director Jonny Johansson. Acne’s new eyewear line is available at its stores now.
