Scandinavian firm Ambition to Create Novel Expressions launched Acne Jeans in 1997 with humble aims. One hundred pairs were passed out to family and friends, and the next move was anyone’s guess. But within a year, the company had launched its first official line, and since then has refined its vision with simple cuts and a minimal sensibility. The label avoids mainstream advertising, and relies instead on word-of-mouth and Acne Paper, a twice-yearly magazine collaboration with Acne Film, Acne Digital, and Acne Creative.
Take a look at the second-skin skinnies in this mix, and it's clear why we're such fans of the Swedes behind cult denim brand Acne. Luckily for us, they lend their irresistible touch to more than just jeans. Shop this sale for slim-fit chinos, crisp white button-downs, and fashion-forward silk and leather dresses, too.
Shoe lovers, this one's for you. We've put together an array of pumps by some of our favorite designers with options ranging from classic (for the 9 to 5) to playful (for after hours). And the best part? They're all up to 80 percent off. Better snag them before we do!
What started as a raw denim line with far-out red stitching has grown into a unique collection of separates and shoes worn by trendsetting starlets like Diane Kruger and Malin Ackerman. We've assembled a great selection of the label's signature looks here, including slim-cut blazers, peep-toe lace-up booties, Mohawk moccasins, and a pair of ballet flats sure to appease your inner black swan.
High fashion meets day-to-day simplicity in this selection from some of our favorite cutting-edge lines. Count on Theyskens’ Theory for effortlessly cool dresses, jackets, blazers, and blouses. Look to esteemed designer Yigal Azrouël (whose capsule collection is Cut 25) for body-con cut-out sheaths, sexy tanks, and more. No matter which designer you choose, you'll be in seriously good style company — that's a promise!
