Acne Studios is pleased to announce that it is expanding its presence in Hong Kong with a new store opening on 7 April. Founded in 1996 in Stockholm, Sweden, Acne Studios has since grown into an international fashion house with flagship stores in Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. Its multidisciplinary approach combines fashion with an interest in photography, art, architecture and contemporary culture.
“We are very excited to open our second store in Hong Kong. I love the buzzing cultural mix of the city, its food as well as the city’s dynamic between water and land. We have been searching for the right location for a long time and are now very happy to open in the extraordinary IFC mall”, – Mikael Schiller, Chairman.
Acne Studios’ 111m2 space in the IFC mall in Hong Kong is the second in the territory. The store follows the new Acne Studios interior concept, with a design specific to each space. Stainless steel walls are as if inserted into the space, while steel hangers and long tables allow the clothing and accessories to be seen as individual objects. This store is Acne Studios’ second one in Hong Kong, following the first store on Ice House Street that opened in 2014.
Today Acne Studios offers men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections, footwear, accessories and denim, designed in its original headquarters in the heart of Old Town in Stockholm. Acne Studios will also open its first store in Beijing on 9 April, followed by openings in Milan and San Francisco later this year.
