If Jil Sander is the godmother to minimalist menswear, then Acne Studios is the cool older brother lighting up in the school yard, a battered biker jacket slung over his shoulder. Since Jonny Johansson launched his denim brand in 1997, Acne (Ambition to Create Novel Expressions) has grown to boast a carefully considered edit of ready-to-wear, accessories, footwear and jewellery. As effortless as it is wearable, Acne’s success is in its no nonsense approach to design. If you only ever buy one piece of Acne Studios, buy a bomber jacket. Every season Acne offers a contemporary take on the classic utility of the MA-1 bomber and the midnight blue ‘Selo Light’ bomber, with its satin-finished shell, streamlined silhouette and sturdy zips is a particular standout. Wear it with the provocative ‘GENDER EQUALITY’ sweatshirt and you’ll certainly turn heads at the local.
