Paolo Roversi Photographs Artists from Around the World for Acne Studios
Acne Studios has commissioned photographer Paolo Roversi to create a series of portraits featuring artists, writers and creatives wearing pieces from the Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The portrait series will be shown outdoor in New York, Hong Kong and Paris as well as in Milan.
“This collection is about openness, and looking out into the world. I wanted to see what would happen when we asked Paolo to shoot portraits of artists and creatives from many different countries, with his own signature and atmosphere. Watching him work in his studio in Paris was like alchemy and such an honour.”
– Jonny Johansson, Creative Director
