Devon Aoki Is The Face Of Acne Studios For SS23
Devon Aoki is the new face of Acne Studios for Spring/Summer 2023. Shot in Los Angeles by Dutch visual artist Carlijn Jacobs, the celestial images capture an enigmatic Aoki in monochromatic looks from the collection.
“Carlijn is one of the great talents, I knew her work and felt that we would do something amazing together. Upon meeting her, you see the creative energy just kind of flows out of her and she is a powerful storyteller,” says Aoki in a statement from the brand.
Acne Studios celebrated its 10th anniversary with a special Paris show for its SS23 collection in September. The Swedish fashion house presented a collection based on a “warped notion of love”, twisting traditional archetypes of romance with playful designs and embellishments set against a dream-like, formal setting. The campaign further explores the romantic idiosyncracy with classing fabrics and energies, pairing delicate silk and soft gingham with dramatic metallic spike studs and dramatically oversized shell earrings.
“I love the energy behind the Acne Studios” says Aoki. “The pieces are beautifully made, very flattering on but feel sui generis like sculpted pieces of art floating down the runway. Feminine and strong and you feel a touch of the experimental. This collection goes beyond clothing’s physical constraints,”
