Acne Studios Men’s F/W20

For the Men’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection, Acne Studios has explored the possibilities of using Artificial Intelligence as a source of design inspiration. “It is amazing to see that Artificial Intelligence can be freeing as a creative tool. I wanted the collection to be alive with new possibilities for how we wear clothes, while also being grounded in strange reality,” says Jonny Johansson, Creative Director of Acne Studios.

The collection was evolved with the generative artist Robbie Barrat, who writes algorithms called neural networks. Thousands of classic Acne Studios looks were fed into various neural networks and generative systems, often incorrectly to cause intentional mistakes. The result was renderings of looks that did not exist, which were then taken as a design starting point, creating bold suggestions in clothing.
