GRANT LEVY-LUCERO X ACNE STUDIOS

ACNE STUDIOS PARTNERS WITH GRANT LEVY-LUCERO FOR A POP-ART COLLABORATION

“Absurdity and branding” were the concepts which lead Californian artist Grant Levy-Lucero to his 2019 (and later, 2021) collaboration with Swedish fashion label Acne Studios. The artist is known for his whimsical, tongue-in-cheek sculptures which combine inspired elements from Pop Art, with Greco-Roman forms. Levy-Lucero is known for decorating his handbuilt, glazed stoneware with the iconography of recognizable brand logos.

 

Drawing inspiration from classic American iconography and hand-painted signage, Levy-Lucero's collaboration with Acne Studios references old flour sacks in his collection of tweed and cotton items. these range from trousers, dresses, sweatshirts, hoodies and tees, as well as accessories including cover scarves, wool beanies, socks, a keyring, wallet and canvas handbags. The slognas used throughout the capsule include “Enjoy Acne Studios” and “Fresh Pop Culture.”

 

The artist’s signature ceramic pieces also featured in the collaboration, as well as the Acne Studios wall design and clothing rack. These pieces could be viewed at the piazza del Carmine store in Milan.
