Acne studios is no stranger to taking creative risks and its Spring/Summer 2018 sneaker collection demonstrates that, as the brand employed their most unique designer to date - an 11 year-old named Tage Johansson.
The young boy is the son of the brand's creative director, Johnny Johansson. The seasoned designer's expertise coupled with his son's wild imagination resulted in a vibrant one-of-a-kind collaboration that's both wearable and whimsical. This line deviates from the brand's minimalist aesthetic and offers consumers vibrant colors, exaggerated platforms, wild patterns.
The shoes also feature artwork by the younger Johansson, including images of rockets and stars. This level of involvement from the 11 year-old help the shoes reach a unique level of authenticity for the brand.
