Acne Studios

Acne Studios is a multidisciplinary luxury fashion house based in Stockholm Sweden, that specializes in men’s and women’s fashion, footwear, accessories and denim. Founded in 1996, Acne Studios was originally part of the creative collective, Acne (which was an acronym of Associated Computer Nerd Enterprises, later changed to Ambition to Create Novel Expressions). In 1997, Founder and Creative Director Johnny Joahannson made 100 pairs of red stitched raw denim jeans, which he then gave to family and friends. Wallpaper and Vogue Paris caught notice and Acne Studios’ popularity quickly grew. Tailoring and a keen attention to detail, as well as the use of custom developed fabrics are hallmarks of the Acne Studios brand.
