MEET THE NEW ACNE FAMILY
From the glitzy runways and bustling life of Los Angeles to the rural wilderness of Canada. A drastic lifestyle change made by Canadian model Tasha Tilberg, her wife Laura, and their twins Bowie and Gray, who star in the new Acne Studios ad campaign, a progressive project that highlights diversity, shot around their countryside home in Canada.
Tilberg moved to New York when she was 15 years old to start her career. A decade later, she met the talent agent Laura Wilson in Los Angeles, and they tied the knot in Mexico the following month. After the birth of their twins, Bowie and Gray, the family left Los Angeles to live on an organic farm in British Columbia on Canada’s West Coast where they lead an off-grid life, raising children in nature, taking care of their animals and dealing with the challenges of setting up a vineyard surrounded by hungry bears.
“I am always fascinated by those people who move away from cities rather than to them. They seem to gain something that I don’t have. That is inspiring. For myself it is about connecting to nature; I find that feeling more and more rewarding,” Jonny Johansson, the Creative Director of Stockholm-based Acne Studios.
