Today we're bringing you a selection of jeans from Swedish denim powerhouse, Acne Studios. Crafted from quality raw denim, Acne produces slim cut jeans that are made to last.
Founded in Stockholm in 1997 by Jonny Johansson, the brand started off producing jeans but in recent years have started producing a strong line of apparel for both men and women. Acne has been featured in almost all of the big fashion magazines and has shown that it is possible to develop a luxury brand from a line of basics. Acne's apparel and footwear lines take a clean, avant-garde approach to everyday basics, which provides an interesting contrast to many of the brands that started around the same time.
As one of the largest brands to come out of Scandinavia in recent times, I thought it would be interesting to see what the brand is doing with its original focus on denim.
