TheACNE Studios brandwas founded in 1996. At the time,Jonny Johanssonand his creative team had no defined strategy; they just wanted to "make fashion" and to offer something contemporary. What is more contemporary than jeans? The team created one hundred pairs of denim jeans with red stitching and distributed them to friends and family as well as a few local customers. Two years later, the label offered a completeready-to-wear collection. ACNE Studios, an acronym for Ambition to Create Novel Expressions, aims to redefine and go beyond fashion boundaries. The Swedish brand differentiates by its multidisciplinary approach, a mix of materials, colors and volumes and great attention to detail. Photography, painting, fashion history and architecture have greatly inspired and influenced ACNE Studios over the years.
