“Ambition to Create Novel Expression” is the mission statement and name of Jonny Johansson’s brand Acne Studios. Founded in Sweden in 1996, Acne Studios started out producing raw denim and has since expanded into a full, head-to-toe clothing brand. At the height of the minimalist, “upscale basics” trend of the 2010s, Acne Studios rose in popularity, providing high quality, tasteful clothing with minimal branding. Despite expanding into other areas, denim is still a cornerstone for the Stockholm-based company, with its Ace Denim and Max Cash cuts remaining fan favorites.
