Vogue’s July 1931 cover by Eduardo García Benito; a graphic illustration of a woman’s face in profile played muse for the vibrant prints featured throughout  spring capsule collection for Acne Studios.
A “Big Head” became known as part of the Spanish artist’s signature style—seen here with a tangle of curls and donning a jazz-age turtleneck—and took many attention-grabbing iterations on Vogue covers throughout the roaring twenties.

For this project, Jonny Johansson softened and reworked this lesser-known cover image through the chalky lens of Cecil Beaton’s graphite prints, and splashed it across breezy summer dresses, voluminous skirts, street-smart T-shirts, court shoes, and even baseball caps. “I often come back to the Art Deco era,” says the designer, who keeps a copy of this particular vintage Vogue on his coffee table at home in Sweden. “It’s the definition of modernism and classism combined.”

Take a look of the collection below.
