About Acqulior


 

Pronounced “ac-kew-lear”

Enter the curious world of the acqulior, the acquirer of peculiar things. She collects bits and bops through her meanderings to curate her own version of a utopic past.
You’re invited to join her, to explore & keep your favourite pieces in your pocket as you go, because for you, well-dressed wanderer, your history is only yours to fashion.

Mission
At Acqulior, it is always about exploring ways to turn fashion production around into a more sustainable practice because we believe that fashion is more than simply what we wear 
Vision
The brand that navigates the changing environmental and social terrain to empower consumers to collectively make the world better and healthier

The team is helmed by Acacia, who attended Parsons Paris under a scholarship before taking a sabbatical to create the label.

Desideratum; 

from Latin, ‘something desired’

"The air was stained with metal and dew drops. 
Within the confines of this ship, the coven wandered through the precarious habitat of their induced dream. Time and space travel, I’ve realised, tends to be lined with long stretches of tedium. Both flexible and unwavering, history unfurls its long and unyielding silence to those who have access to the power of an expanding black hole.
Landing. 
The soft lights across the edges of the chamber shot into the rapidly decompressing atrium like arrows. We all knew what was coming. It’s what we trained for our entire lives. It was our honour and privilege, and our unifying mission. The slumber induced by our ship dissipates, only an echo now in the back of our mind.

Notebooks, jars and tweezers. The tools of trade for the aspiring natural historian. Collectors and curators of the past, we seek to document and explain to our progeny how we came to be and what we must never return to. The coven scatters in preparation for departure like leaves in the late autumn wind. Veiled in silence, we attempt to prepare for the unexpected. The previous coven landing in this time-space did not last long.
Discrimination, blatant ignorance and inequality plague this time-space.
This will not phase us;
for we soar upon eagle's wings.
 
The sun, the blue-grey sky and the sounds of urban life bleeding into the air.
Semi-familiar were the hallmarks of existence before humans realised they were not alone in this sempiternal universe.

 Our task was simple. To observe, to document, and to acquire the peculiar."

“RYCOGALUS HAWKENESIS” 

Designed and conceptualised by our founder Acacia and her friend Jael Ng,
The Greiffhase is the mythical sigil of Acqulior, and is the hybrid of the rabbit and the eagle. 
The Greiffhase was inspired by the eagle Aquila of greek mythology, and the moon rabbit of chinese mythology.
