Acne Studios “Bla Konst” Fall Collection

As a perfect way to welcome the upcoming transitional season, Acne Studios delivers an exclusive denim collection developed in collaboration with Alex Knost. The California based artist, musician and surfer was the inspirational starting point for the Swedish label new denim line, incorporating just the right amount of irreverence and quirkiness that characterise Knost - just check some of his uncanny longboard riding videos.
