The Acne Studios ‘Welcome to Stockholm’ print references everyday graffiti — rather than accomplished street art — a nod to spontaneity and quick wit.
As if daubed in wet paint on a wall, they are tongue-in-cheek depictions of a “City Rat”, “Beat Cat” and “Underground Bear”. The prints feature on a range of garments such as mesh longsleeved tops, jersey sweatshirts and t-shirts, plus accessories including oversized tote bags and scarves. The color palette consists of putty and lilac for “City Rat”, pale blue for “Beat Cat” and chartreuse and brick red for “Underground Bear”.
Shot by Anders Edström in Frihamnen in Stockholm, the photographer wanted to make up his own world. “Edström has always been attracted to the places that were abstract, not so defined, where you can make up your own world, where you can dream. Frihamnen is a place like that,” said the label.
