Have you heard the news? Acne Studios and Fjällräven just launched their collaboration full of colourful, unisex pieces this September.

As a homage from one Swedish brand to another, Acne Studios has reinterpreted some of Fjällrävens most iconic and best-loved items such as the Känken backpack and the Expedition Down jacket. All items are produced on nature’s terms, but with a distinctive Acne Studios aesthetic. This unique and fresh edit embraces the Scandinavian look while welcoming the world of high fashion into nature. By combining minimalism with functionality in a colorful and fun way, it embodies the true Nordic vibe perfectly while adding a fun element to your wardrobe.

One of my favorite items in the collection is the new version of the Känken backpack from 1978 in a messenger style bag, designed to fit a laptop as well as a smaller version reduced down to a clutch bag size while retaining all the original details. Available in a range of colours, I suspect these will become new classic staples. Now the question is, what colour combination to choose?…

What do you think? See the full collection on the Fjällraven or Acne Studios sites.

That Scandinavian feeling is a blog by Ingrid Opstad, a Norwegian journalist living in Italy. Ingrid wants her blog to represent the feeling of coziness and calm with a Nordic simplistic, minimalistic style. The blog is intended to share her knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. A place where you can get inspired to find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.

    I love the collaboration bags too! Acne studios and Fjällräven are one of my favorite Swedish brands along with COS, & Other Stories, Filippa K., Weekday, and Tiger of Sweden but I’m totally obsessed with Acne.
