Unfortunate news for fashion lovers, particularly those who enjoy having a somewhat revolving door of new items in their closet, the fashion industry has been called out as one of the globe's top polluters. This unfavorable truth has designers and brands alike looking for ways to cut down the amount of waste they produce.

Acne Studios found a way to do just that, and create stunning new looks while they are at it. Their new series of drops feature clothes made from excess fabrics and materials. Not only are the clothes sustainable, but they are also unique fall-friendly designs indistinguishable in quality from the rest of the brand's garments.

"This new series is about finding creative ways to be more resourceful," said Jonny Johansson, Creative Director. "Acne Studios was founded on design experimentation, and today we want to use our creativity to take positive steps towards becoming more mindful."

The first drop is a collection of women's staples. The pieces feature spliced together patterns of tweed and denim, with a reoccurring zipper motif.  One standout item is a fitted blazer made from multiple styles of tweed and wool paneling, with zipper front pockets. Of course, the collection also includes a logo white tee, which reads "Repurposed" across the front in tweed lettering.

All items are available for purchase on Acne Studio's website.
