Swedish cool-kid label Acne has teamed up with Candy magazine editor Luis Venegas to launch a clothing collection geared towards transvestites. According to Vogue UK, the label will be creating three "androgynous shirts, made in both silk crepe and Italian denim. the styles are available in two washes—stonewashed and bleached." The western-inspired tops are named after Venegas' favorite characters on 80s soap opera Dynasty: Alexis, Sammy Jo, and Krystle. [Vogue UK]
