ACNE X Robbie Barrat A/W20

It would be hard to argue that Robbie Barrat isn't a pioneer.

At the age of 20 he's already written code that was instrumental in the creation and subsequent sale of the world's first (and still, most expensive) piece of AI art sold at auction, which went for $432,500 (rewarded to a French team who "borrowed" Robbie's code).

He's also collaborated with painter Ronan Barrot, trained a Machine Learning algorithm on Balenciaga runway shows, going on to make and sell trousers inspired by the output of the subsequent model.

Most recently, he's collaborated with the fashion label Acne studios on their A/W20 menswear collection, using neural networks to generate new designs based on Acne's back catalogue, which were unveiled at Paris Fashion Week last Sunday.

I can't wait to see what Robbie does next!
