ACNE

For ACNE pop-up store opening, Jonny Johansson who is a creative director of the most “it” brand on the rise, ACNE, gave us a precious interview.

What kind of group is ACNE Studios?

It is a group of creators who acts in various fields seeking for a fusion of modern art and culture for youth, based in Stockholm, a capital of Sweden. Our atelier is at the historical building that was once a bank in the old town of Stockholm. We also have our ateliers in Paris, Copenhagen, Oslo, London and New York.

ACNE Studios was founded in 1997 with a concept of creating a place for ideas coming and going under the spirit of DIY. Since then we have been active in the creative fields such as fashion, pictures and advertisement, as crossing them over.
ACNE are initials of“Ambition to Create Novel Expression”, which has been our belief.

In those activities, ACNE as a fashion brand expands the business to men’s, ladies, shoes, accessories and premium denim. Appeals of them are original materials, craftsmanship and details supported by tailoring.
The brand was born with a hundred jeans as a start, which was a reward to our friends and family members for supporting us, and the collection of the brand debuted in 1998.
The brand received Swedish Elle Award in 2000 for the first time and then did the same award three times. It has grown to a brand that plays an important role for Swedish fashion development, enough to get 2012 Elle UK Style Award for Contemporary Designer of the year.
Now we have flagship stores in Paris, London and New York in addition to Stockholm where we are based. We opened another in Tokyo last December.

The first flagship store in Japan is named “ACNE Studios Aoyama”.
How was your impression for Japan when you visited for the opening?

Tokyo has been always a source of my inspiration so that it was the most prior dream in these years for me to open a shop in Aoyama.
I feel that Tokyo and Sweden have something in common, not only in fashion but also in architecture.

What was the project to have ACNE make great strides or the first international one?

It was a work with Vogue that was the first international project for us. And Japanese also has supported us so I visit Japan many times in these days.

Could you tell me your enthusiasm for this project with us including a pop-up shop?

I’m very glad to collaborate with you including William Wegman’s shoes. This is a very exciting project for us!
