The Acne Studios Story
From art to fashion
Before we can understand the origins of Swedish label Acne Studios, we must first look at its creator, Jonny Johansson. It was in 1996 that Johansson, a fan of art, architecture and fashion, together with his partners decided to create the brand Acne Studios. A project infused with artistic flair, Acne - an acronym for Ambition to Create Novel Expressions - began life as a capsule collection composed of 100 pairs of unisex jeans, which went on to enjoy immediate success and media attention.
From Stockholm to Tokyo
Acne Studios quickly became a brand in its own right with its unique style, mix of genres and androgynous silhouettes. The Swedish brand also impressed with its oversized cuts, graphic prints and timeless classics. Who hasn’t dreamed of owning a pair of Acne jeans or one of the label’s totally original pairs of shoes? Acne Studios was a real success and is now internationally recognised with boutiques at the heart of the world’s most beautiful cities: New York, Paris, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo... a list that keeps on growing.
But this iconic label isn’t just for adults, recently launching a line of children's clothing inspired by pieces from their adult collections. The Acne Studios junior collection is made up of jeans and timeless pieces and that we can’t help but fall in love with. Discover the Acne Studios junior collection on Smallable.
