Fashion house ACNE STUDIOS presented their Spring Summer 2022 MUSUBI Bag Collection with a campaign captured by American artist Talia Chetrit. The campaign features intimate images starring two male dancers. It focuses on the strong, muscular bodies, that represent the figurative qualities in the bags, and explores contrasts in tactility and materiality, most notably skin and leather.
I have long admired the work of Talia Chetrit because she treats everything in a singular, very personal way. This project was her idea entirely – we just sent her some bags to photograph as she wished – Jonny Johansson, Creative Director
“The emblematic Acne Studios Musubi bag is characterised by a twisted knot motif, which takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese obi sash, and is crafted in Italy from 100% cow leather. It comes in four sizes: maxi, midi, mini and micro. For Spring/Summer 2022, it comes in two new shapes: a Musubi micro tote bag and a Musubi shoulder bag.” – from Acne Studios
