Acne Studios is a renowned Swedish brand that was founded in 1996 by Jonny Johansson. Initially starting as a branch of the creative collective ACNE (Ambition to Create Novel Expression), the brand quickly became known for its distinctive style and innovative design. The first product was a pair of raw denim jeans that Jonny produced as a limited run of 100 pairs, which were gifted to friends and family. The jeans were an instant hit, establishing the brand’s reputation for high-quality denim and leading the way for expansion into a full fashion house.

Over the years, Acne Studios has grown to embody a multidisciplinary approach to fashion, blurring the lines between art, culture, and design. With a focus on tailoring and an eclectic use of materials and custom-developed fabrics, the brand is defined by Jonny Johansson’s eye for design and love of art and architecture. The brand’s collections are inspired by photography, art, architecture, and contemporary culture, creating an innovative and boundary-pushing aesthetic.

Today, Acne Studios operates in over 50 countries worldwide, with flagship stores in cities such as Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. Despite its global reach, the brand remains deeply rooted in the creative culture of its hometown, Stockholm. Acne Studios continues to set trends and push the boundaries of fashion, never straying far from its original ethos: an ambition to create, innovate, and express novel ideas through fashion.
