Transporting you back to the '80s and '90s, the Acne Studios Propaganda collection taps into the underground fashion and clubbing scene for Spring/Summer 2020. In the newly launched capsule, the design house takes a deep-dive into the archives of goth subculture magazine, Propaganda, to create a selection of artful pieces that tell the lineup's story through words and images emblazoned on fluid silhouettes that feel really cool.

For those not familiar with Propaganda, it was an American publication that was in print from 1982 to 2002. Founded by photographer Fred H. Berger, the magazine covered gothic fashion, sexuality, music, art, and literature. And the capsule found a way to bring the feeling of the publication to life and the culture it focused on in an ultra-laidback but wearable way.

Priced between $180 to $540, Acnes Studios latest capsule is currently available for purchase in stores and on acnestudios.com. The lineup of styles includes a range of apparel and accessories that incorporate magazine covers, typography, and other images. Sweatshirts and tees with eye-catching covers sit next to organza shirts with screen-printed images. Meanwhile, there's a pair of head-turning denim in the mix that offers two different images printed on them.

When it comes to the accessories, there's a belt, a pair of sunglasses, and several small leather pieces that are boldly printed with typographic phrases like "Black Leather," "Gloom and Glam," and "Glamicide". The selection of silk scarves bearing magazine covers and images are not to be missed either, as they can easily be styled into your look in a number of ways — like say, around your neck or through the top-handle of your favorite handbag.

It's not often that you see a collection's inspiration shown so visually on its designs, which makes this a unique opportunity to scoop up special pieces that you can bring into your wardrobe for the new year.
