Emojis are hot in fashion right now.

Perhaps it’s a designer’s way of telling millennials, “Hey, we get u” or it’s an easy route to Instagram-worthy accessories and apparel; either way, it’s a playful nod to the tech language we’re all enthusiastically fluent in.

So why not plaster the symbols on graphic tees?

That was seemingly the thought process behind the new Acne Studios capsule collection featuring embroidered sweatshirts, tees, sneakers, and caps with more detailed versions of the ever-popular doughnut, banana, and microphone emojis.

The just-launched collection, with prices ranging from $150 to $480, is available on the brand’s website and in Acne stores.

Acne Studios is based in Stockholm, Sweden with own-brand retail stores in locations around the world. Unfortunately, they are not available in India yet. But you can always look at these designs, because why not?
