News__ ACNE GETS SILVERED

October 14, 2011 | By

The London-based artist's first imprint on fashion is now available to buy

Daniel Silver collaborated with Acne on a capsule collection for fall/winter 2011. The collection launched this Tuesday. Though it's his first time working in fashion, Silver definitely hit the mark.

A little background spiel: Daniel Silver is a sculptor and a collage-maker. He’s a Royal College of Art kid, and creates beautifully raw sculptures that nod at mythologies and intertwine human histories. Mixing materials and media, his work feels like an amalgamation of a recent dream you had.

His style transferred into prints and became a colorful kaleidoscope of new-age tribal patterns. According to him, it was one big collage. It’s served up a good compliment to Acne's clean silhouettes, and shook up their usual Swedish subdued cool.

Oh and did you see the ombre jacket? That fade is everywhere.
