Who would've thought that the humble sock could work as an interpretation of a personality? That's exactly what Acne does with their new Hockney Socks due out this fall. Applying the same aesthetic appeal as the pop pioneer for which they're named, the footwear references his bright a bold colors and cubist-like paintings, drawing and photographs.

Known for wearing the occasional mismatched pair himself, the collection includes a couple options for the sartorially irreverent. It helps that Acne shares a similarly impeccable sense of color; they did a great job of designing complimentary pairs.

The Hockney socks will be available online in the next few days at Acne for $50 per pair.
