History of the brand
Founded in 1997 in Stockholm, the ambition of Acne Studios was to design and create their own products along with helping others build their brands. This led to many assignments in TV production, Internet games, graphic design, and advertising. The company started when it designed hundred pairs of jeans that were distributed to clients, family, and friends. Soon, several boutiques and stores wanted to carry the line thanks to the quality and characteristics of the denim stitching. Acne has developed from these modest beginnings into a well-known clothing brand.
The first ‘real’ collection from Acne Studios was launched in 1998. Since then, Jonny Johansson has worked with an experienced and very talented design staff to create a strong brand identity. In central Stockholm, the brand opened their first Acne Studios in 2003. The second studio opened in the following year in Copenhagen. After that, three more studios opened in 2005.
The brand also represented through numerous retailers around the globe. Among the popular stores that carry the Acne Studio collections are Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, Barneys in New York, Quartier 206 in Berlin, Louis in Antwerp, Brown’s Focus in London, and Colette in Paris. Acne Studios received ‘Designer of the Year’ award from Swedish ELLE in 2000. In 2003, it received the Café Magazine fashion award and in 2004, it received Damernas Värld’s ‘Guldknappen’ design award.
