The knotted details on Acne Studios’ black cross-body bag take inspiration from Japanese Obi sashes – a traditional belt that originated during the Muromachi period. It’s crafted in Italy from butter-soft leather to a compact silhouette that opens using a press-stud flap top and is hallmarked with a silver hot-stamp logo. Carry it across the body using the slim shoulder strap for a minimalist mood.
Swedish design collectiveACNE was founded in 1997 by Jonny Johansson. Initially specialising in jeans the brand now is a byword for modern classics infused with Scandinavian cool as seen in the likes of Stella and Elle.
