It's pretty rare in the fashion industry for two competing brands to work together on a line of products, but that's just what Acne Studios and Mulberry are doing with a collection of leather goods combining their signature motifs.

This unusual collaboration is the result of a longtime friendship between Acne Studios' Creative Director Jonny Johansson and Mulberry's CEO Thierry Andretta. "This is a collection about friendship and our freedom as brands to do what we want to do," Johansson says in the release. "It is like a conversation between Acne Studios and Mulberry, one that is founded in mutual respect and a desire to make great product."

On Nov. 5, the pair are launching a 17-piece bag and small leather goods line merging bestselling styles from each house; think Mulberry Scotchgrain satchels with Acne Studios' oversized metal hardware, or the origami knot from Acne Studios' Musubi bag on Mulberry's signature Bayswater. Even the logo combines the two, with the letters from Acne Studios forming leaves in the Mulberry tree.
