Founded in Stockholm in 1996 by four creatives, Acne’s ambition was to create and develop a lifestyle brand through the production of desirable products as well as helping others build their brands. This ambition led to diverse assignments in advertising, graphic design and television production.Acne witnessed a space in the market for denim and utilised this forward thinking nature to create 100 pairs of unisex jeans. The denim garnered press and short thereafter leading boutiques wanted to carry the characteristic jeans with bright-red stitching. These are the foundations of Acne. Acne Studios unites innovative jeans styles with a versatile wardrobe for men and women, ranging from basic cotton T-shirts, to tailored jackets to luxurious accessories and shoes. While every collection forms a concept, each piece can be worn separately and effortlessly be mixed with other brands. By designing simple, functional clothes Acne aims to create a modern framework for individuality. Founded in Stockholm 1996, Acnes ambition was to create and develop their own products as well as helping other people to build their brands. This ambition led to numerous assignments in advertising, graphic design, Internet games and TV production. As a part of the creative collective ACNE, Acne started in 1997 when the company designed 100 pairs of jeans distributed to friends, family and clients. Soon, several stores and boutiques wanted to carry the line, much to do with the characteristic bright-red stitching on raw denim. From these humble beginnings Acne has developed into a renowned jeans brand. The first realcollection was launched in 1998. Since then Acne Creative Director Jonny Johansson has worked with a skilful design team to create a strong identity for the brand. In 2003 the company opened their first Acne Studios in PK-huset in central Stockholm. The second studio opened in Copenhagen in December the following year. And three more opened in 2005, a second in both Stockholm and Copenhagen, and the first German studio opened in Mitte Berlin. The label is also represented through more than 450 retailers around the world. Among the well-known stores that carry the collections are Colette in Paris, Selfridges, and Brown’s Focus in London, Louis in Antwerp, Quartier 206 in Berlin, Barneys in New York and Lane Crawford in Hong. In 2000 ACNE STUDIOS received Swedish ELLEs Designer of the Year award. The company won the Café Magazine fashion award in 2003, and received Damernas Världs design award Guldknappen in 2004. The same year Acne was received ELLEs Denim Designer of the Year award. Acne Studios is today recognized internationally as a creative collective, unique for its corporate diversity such as fashion design, graphic design, film production and advertising, as well as product, business and concept development.

Nature and beauty, style and sophistication, handcraft and innovation. These are the values that generate a luxury of substance and not merely appearance, a luxury that emanates an unmistakeable yet discreet aura of refined understatement. Only the rarest fibres, worked in a style rooted in the cult of the genuine and natural, a style that develops in a continual process of product innovation. High technology thus marries the wisdom of craftsmanship in a production process that is all “Made in Italy”. They are then worked in a sophisticated and contemporary style that expresses itself in refined, minimal lines, softly enveloping forms and infinite care over detail. Every detail, in fact, is designed to have aesthetic value in its own. right, which in turn gives a garment a sophisticated touch that will never go unobserved. The choice of colours follows and respects natural shades, going from white to all the nuances of earth but also enriching the palette with exciting new colours, the fruit of continual and passionate experimentation to find the perfect tone. This creative fascination with style characterizes the whole world of Agnona: it’s seen in the knitwear, which continues, collection after collection, to present surprising new variations in both the ready-to-wear models, such as the dresses of timeless charm and the passe-partout over garments, and, naturally, in the accessories and Home collection.

LEE ALEXANDER MCQUEEN ALEXANDER MCQUEEN WAS BORN IN LONDON ON MARCH 17TH 1969, THE YOUNGEST OF SIX CHILDREN. HE LEFT SCHOOL AT THE AGE OF 16 AND WAS OFFERED AN APPRENTICESHIP AT THE TRADITIONAL SAVILE ROW TAILORS ANDERSON AND SHEPHARD AND THEN AT NEIGHBOURING GIEVES AND HAWKES, BOTH MASTERS IN THE TECHNICAL CONSTRUCTION OF CLOTHING.From there he moved to the theatrical costumiers Angels and Bermans where he mastered 6 methods of pattern cutting from the melodramatic 16th Century to the razor sharp tailoring which has become a McQueen signature. Aged 20 he was employed by the designer Koji Tatsuno, who also had his roots in British tailoring. A year later McQueen travelled to Milan where he was employed as Romeo Gigli’s design assistant. On his return to London, he completed a Masters degree in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martin’s. He showed his MA collection in 1992, which was famously bought in its entirety by Isabella Blow.Alexander McQueen shows are known for their emotional power and raw energy, as well as the romantic but determinedly contemporary nature of the collections. Integral to the McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. An openly emotional and even passionate viewpoint is realised with a profound respect and influence for the arts and crafts tradition. Alexander’s collections combine an in-depth working knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, the fine workmanship of the French Haute Couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing. In less than 10 years McQueen became one of the most respected fashion designers in the world. In October 1996 he was appointed Chief Designer at the French Haute Couture House Givenchy where he worked until March of 2001. In December 2000, 51% of Alexander McQueen was acquired by the Gucci Group, where he remained Creative Director. Collections include womens ready-to-wear, mens ready-to-wear, accessories, eyewear and fragrance (Kingdom 2003 and MyQueen 2005). Expansion followed and included the opening of flagship stores in New York, London, Milan, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. The following awards have recognized Alexander McQueen’s achievement in fashion: British Designer of the year 1996, 1997, 2001, and 2003, International Designer of the Year by The Council of Fashion Designer’s of America (CFDA) in 2003, A Most Excellent Commander of The British Empire (CBE) by her Majesty the Queen in 2003, GQ Menswear Designer of the Year in 2007.

travelling into the deepest depths of Brooklyn on an icy Saturday night doesn't put show-goers in the best of moods. It transpires that his show venue is so remote that it doesn't even show up on Sat Nav. And so, in a not-so-fun game of the blind leading the blind, a convoy of town cars circle streets in search of Wang autumn/winter 2014. As the cars pulled up to the elusive Ship Way Avenue, passed 9pm, more than half an hour later than scheduled, a collective this-had-better-be-worth-it rippled through Wang's particular warehouse of choice. His first exits set the pace. With hair slicked down, combed tight to heads, models looked like sci fi man-mannequins from a digital age. A series of stiff tunic dresses with hard leather collars were decked out in moulded 3D storage compartments, each one stiff as a board, they were reminiscent of the Utensilo shiny plastic organisers by Vitra that you see nailed to walls in artsy homes and offices, filled with stationery-like pens and scissors and other nik-naks. Bags took on a similar feel, which were more like belts slung over shoulders streaming in flask holders, camera and iPhone cases. A place for everything, Wang fans will be vying for one come August. Next, came tissue-thin leather tracksuit trousers teamed with T-shirts rendered in purple Astrakhan.  Yes the finale of heat-activated looks that changed colour before fashion spectators' eyes, while whirling around on a conveyor belt were pretty impressive too, but by then thoughts had already turned to the snaking gridlocked queue out of here and the pilgrimage back to Manhattan
