Many will be pleased with the most recent Liberty x Acne collaboration. These fashion gurus are taking department store getups to the next level, considering the bevy of new temptations found each time you step into Liberty's hallowed halls.

The retailer opens its extensive archive of iconic prints to the cult also lending itself as an exclusive opportunity for the team. Acne's creative director Jonny Johansson has a long history with Liberty prints, having used them as a source of inspiration in his early years as a designer.

The two brands are realized in a tight edit of leather pieces, featuring prints from the art nouveau period. The label's signature leather biker jackets and sunnies are all given the Liberty motif treatment.
