Acne Studios SS18 sneakers, interpreted by Tage Johansson

Tage Johansson, son of Jonny Johansson

Creative Director of Acne Studios, Jonny Johansson, created a short SS18 film featuring his 12 year old son, Tage Johansson, experimenting with Acne Studios sneaker designs to create his own versions.

It was really fun cutting up the sneakers, and almost as fun putting them back together. My designs are cool - better than dad’s originals.
— Tage Johansson

Tage Johansson’s creative upbringing exudes through his diligent work of fusing different colors, patterns, and pieces together, creating two avant-garde sneaker prototypes.
