Acler is a high-end women's ready-to-wear fashion label focusing on intermeshing unique eras of art, fashion & design into a contemporary ensemble of wearable yet eccentric garments. The name itself is an anagram of clear; a projection of a mismatch assortment of ideas to form a defined, evocative simplicity, complete branding; identity, visual language, ethos, packaging & labelling. When co-designers Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto first met to conceptualise Acler, their common goal was to rebel against cookie-cutter digital design and bring the design process back to its fundamentally tactile roots.
Each Acler piece is developed over a process of 12 months, and is subtly redrafted, and redraped along the way, allowing the design to take on its own form naturally. The end result is a meticulously constructed piece, which has an organic sculptural shape and an ultimately refined minimalism.
