ACNE STUDIOS PROPAGANDA SPRING 2020 CAPSULE COLLECTION
For Spring, Acne Studios delves into the archive of the goth subculture magazine Propaganda to create a womenswear capsule collection.
January 8, 2020
The long-running American publication Propaganda was founded in 1982 by Fred H Berger and explored gothic fashion, sexuality, music, art and literature. Berger’s photography was a large focus of Propaganda, its legacy of using androgynous male models and capturing the eerie and macabre lasting well beyond its final issue in 2002. The Acne Studios Propaganda Spring 2020 capsule collection features magazine covers, typography and other images screen-printed on a range of garments and accessories.
Evoking feelings of the underground or clubbing, the Acne Studios Propaganda capsule collection tells a story with images and words. Shirting with screen-printed images include a sleeveless long- line shirt in light blue organza, a short-sleeved shirt in cream beige organza, a long-sleeved shirt in off-white and black cotton jacquard stripes and a shirt dress in off-white and black cotton jacquard stripes. Black poplin shirts have the word “Glamicide” emblazoned on the front.
For denim, the 1997 jean has two different images printed on them. Jersey pieces, including sweatshirts and sleeveless, long-line t-shirts and short-sleeved t-shirts with contrast necklines, feature magazine covers and iconic stories. Accessories consists of small leather goods, a belt and a pair of sunglasses with typographic phrases, plus a series of silk scarves with magazine covers or images.
