Acne Studios returns with a new FW18 release paying homage to its Nordic roots. In celebration of the hand-knitting traditions of Sweden, Norway, Iceland, and Finland, the brand presents a selection of handmade, limited-edition sweaters, referencing local knitwear patterns, colors, and materials.
The collection features a patchwork of four different motifs, as each swatch has been hand-knitted by an artisan from one of the aforementioned countries. Furthermore, a roll neck sweater in bright blue and a crewneck sweater in cranberry have also been constructed from the patchwork patterns.
Each sweater from the seasonal drop is made from 100% wool and welcomes a woven label combining the flags of each four countries. You can look forward to the limited edition knitwear launching November 22 in select stores and online.
To coincide with the release, Acne Studios presents a complementary short film highlighting Nordic knitting traditions. You can watch the documentary below.
