Acne Studios & Mulberry are pleased to reveal every piece in their collaboration. The collection of bags and small leather goods brings together the two houses, marrying Swedish design with English charm. Key styles have been given a fresh twist in the limited-edition range, such as the Musubi bag, by Acne Studios, and the Bayswater, by Mulberry. 

“This is a collection about friendship, like a conversation between Acne Studios and Mulberry that is found on mutual respect. Growing up, Mulberry was a truly iconic brand in Sweden. Their handbags bring back memories from my childhood - must be one of my earliest fashion memories,” says Jonny Johansson, Creative Director of Acne Studios.

“The Acne Studios and Mulberry collaboration is a perfect manifestation of the spirit of both our brands. It showcases Acne Studios’ wonderful Swedish design ethos and celebrates both the British heritage and modernity of Mulberry,” says Thierry Andretta, CEO of Mulberry.

The Acne Studios & Mulberry collection brings together classic styles and signatures from the two houses to create something new. Mulberry’s celebrated Scotchgrain bags have been reimagined by the Acne Studios design team, with multiple leather buckle strap fastenings and oversized metal hardware. The bag comes in messenger and mini cross-body satchel styles, available in pink and black crocodile print leather, with the collaboration logo on the reverse: the letters of Acne Studios like leaves in the Mulberry tree emblem.
