And the winner is... Marcus Badman!

Acne Studios selected Konstfack master's student Marcus Badman to win the 1st prize in the "Together is Better" contest.

Acne Studios, that has developed into a well-respected brand of ready-to-wear, magazines, furniture, books and exhibitions, teamed up with Le Bon Marché, one of the world's finest department store to celebrate the idea of working as "duo".

They then invited young talented artists to bring together their creative minds and artistic skills to reinterpret one of the iconic Acne Studios "Musubi" bags. Approximately 40 suggestions were presented to a jury believing strongly not only in bringing different visions and thoughts together, but also external input to their teams and challenge them to step out of the box.

And that's what Marcus Baldman did, student at the master's programme Spatial Design at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design. Congratulations!

The shortlisted and winning works will be featured and commercialized in a limited edition for a exhibition at Le Bon Marché from February to April 2020.
