ACNE jeans were the first item of inspired clothing in the Acne Studios collection, but the much-loved label now creates shoes, dresses, and accessories as well, all of which achieve the same clean, meticulous aesthetic. Scandinavian firm Ambition to Create Novel Expressions started Acne Jeans in 1997 by passing out 100 pairs to family and friends; within a year, the company had launched its first official line. Since then, the label has applied its artistic sensibility to graphic design and its in-house Acne Paper, a twice-yearly magazine collaboration with Acne Film, Acne Digital, and Acne Creative. ACNE jeans run the denim gamut, from straight leg jeans to skinny jeans to bootcuts and more; the brand also has your entire wardrobe covered, with cardigans, jackets, parkas, full-zip sweaters, coats and other outerwear for your wintry needs; long-sleeved sport shirts, oxfords and dress pants for the office, and casual pants, tanks, short sleeved sport shirts, leather jackets and crewneck tees for the weekend.
Acne Jeans is a Swedish denim manufacturer and part of the Stockholm-based design firm “Ambition to Create Novel Expressions”. Launched in 1997, Acne grew from humble beginnings when they designed 100 pairs of jeans to distribute to friends, family and clients of the company. Soon after, public request grew and the brand released their first official collection the following year. Following in the tradition of Scandinavian fashion, Acne Jeans follows a signature minimalism in addition to abstaining from advertising in any fashion magazine and instead, publishing their own magazine Acne Paper twice each year since 2005. Acne opened its first concept store in a Stockholm shopping mall and today, has more than ten stores in Scandinavia, Australia, France, Germany, United States and is now available at Gilt Groupe.
What is it with the Swedes and impossibly hip denim? Stockholm-based design firm Ambition to Create Novel Expressions takes a conspicuously intellectualized approach to crafting ACNE Jeans. The chic minimalism of Filippa K is all about good design. Nudie, meanwhile, focuses on the principle of sustainable luxury; they pioneered the production of organic denim.
From graphic tees and distressed jeans to poplin button-downs and wool blazers, this uberhip Swedish brand has got you covered seven days a week. In addition to these supercool sneakers from Acne’s collaboration with Tretorn, you’ll also find dressy lace-up oxfords in mesh and patent leather.
