After working with Balenciaga earlier this year on Couture Face Shields, Mercedes-Benz is looking to combine fashion and design once again with its new “ACC01” capsule, developed through creative studio Acte TM.

The “ACC01” capsule includes 28 modular pieces that complement each other as a self-contained functional unit. In partnership with Studio Kasia Kucharska, the trio develops unique pieces including jackets, hoodies, T-shirts and bags, which explore sustainable and innovative manufacturing techniques in addition to the ACC-LT01 jumpsuit, the ACCC BH01 Big Hood cape and the Mercedes-Benz patent-inspired ACC-K01 Puffer skirt.

Additional items in the collection that include the brand’s DNA along with its sustainability vision include the AB-BG01 bag, which consists of curved metal inlays, an aluminium body frame and a replaceable 3D printed case. The design references the raw skeleton of a car chassis and its relationship to the human body, and the overall shape is inspired by automotive storage components.
