Acephala present their new SS18 collection ‘On how to be creative and not get mad’

This season premium brand Acephala invite you to play with a spectrum of shapes and fabrics. Signaling a fresh view of dressing for work.

The inspiration for the collection came from the analysis of working rituals and the belief that clothes can affect the creative process. The collection is built on 10 different work-associated situations and emotional states: ‘Email in bed’, ‘Conference call on Skype’, ‘Office-related work’, ‘Running errands in town’, ‘Business lunch’, ‘Just one meeting today’, ‘I need to focus’, ‘Deadline is coming’, ‘I need a day off’ and ‘Networking gala’.

Founded by designer Monika Kędziora and brand manager Bartek Korzeniowski 4 years ago in Warsaw, Poland. Acephala nods at women’s rights through conceptual and individualistic designs with premium fabrics and quality finishing.

The SS18 collection boasts of modern tailoring with a fun take on work wear for the summer because a grown-up wardrobe should never be boring!

Here you will find quality Japanese denim pieces such as the wide leg 1970’s inspired jeans for £160 as well as well as statement pieces such as the gingham shirt made out of 100% virgin wool for £260.

Other themes that run through the collection are the black pieces that have been made with a technical anti crease fabric making these styles extremely versatile especially if travelling.

About Acephala

The name Acephala stems from the Acéphale (akephalos meaning “headless”) – surrealists’ most favored figure of freedom. Acephala is literally a headless woman, metaphorically a mad, lunatic, female rebel overruling strict ways of reasoning. Playing with gender stereotypes is the crux of Acephala. The figure of Acephala is always a constant point of reference when working on the collection development. It centers all the issues the brand address starting from the choice of inspiration, through to the design of the clothes, garment construction, and importantly the detailing and prints.
