Acne Studios (Ambition to Create Novel Expressions) was founded in Stockholm in 1996 by Jonny Johansson, and the label began by creating 100 pairs of jeans with distinctive red stitching which were given to family and friends. To this day, the effortless collections are inspired by the designer’s love of art, photography and architecture, alongside his musical background. Renowned for its effortlessly cool Scandinavian aesthetic, the label creates streetwear-inspired pieces which present a shortcut to a perfectly edited urban uniform. Look to its coveted leather biker jackets, retro-tinged denim and cult accessories to elevate your off-duty wardrobe.
