Introducing Acne Studios

Introducing Acne Studios

Acne Studios, with Acne being an acronym for ‘Ambition to Create Novel Expression’, was founded in 1996 by Jonny Johansson and was originally a creative agency, specialising in graphic design, advertising and film.

Based in Stockholm and originally inspired by Johansson’s interest and passion for photography, art and contemporary culture, Acne Studios was quickly established as the place to go for raw denim, after Johansson created 100 pairs of denim jeans for close friends and family.

With its fun, quirky and unique designs, Acne Studios is now immensely popular at Paris Fashion Week, and offers ready-to-wear garments that push the boundaries of today’s fashion ideology. 

At YSM, we stock a range of Acne Studios specialities, including everyday staples such as oversized jumpers and 90s inspired urban sneakers.
