Acephala is a fashion label fusing conceptual thinking on garment with high-end craft. It’s enigmatic name stems from the Acéphale (akephalos meaning “headless”) – surrealists’ most favoured figure of freedom. Acephala is literally a headless woman, metaphorically a mad, lunatic, female rebel overruling strict ways of reasoning. Identity and its relation to dressing up one’s neurosis are the crux of our brand.
The collection is always a story where shapes and fabrics work as narrative tools. Clothes by Acephala are perfectly cut, reveal attention to detail and are formed of printed fabrics and high-quality textiles from innovative weaving houses based in Italy, France and Japan.
