Daniel Silver created a capsule collection in collaboration with Acne for Spring Summer 2012.

I find really interesting when fashion brands collaborate with artists: it’s such a good way to explore how fashion and art can bound together, and understand hidden potential of both the brand and the artist.

Jonny Johansson said about the collaboration:

“What I am fascinated with Daniel, is the similarity of how we work, we both like to explore what is contemporary. It’s not a modernist thing but more of a neo-classical style with a re-interpretation of classical forms in a contemporary manner. […] Fabrics are slightly raw and tribal in style, Daniel has a strong relationship with Africa and so we embraced this in the collection, there is painted leather, a lot of print and a lot of naive texture.”
