There seems to be a common symmetry in the respective growth between Jonathan+Olivia and Acne Studios that has developed and lasted as long as our relationship which dates to 2005. Back then J+O was based on Main Street in Vancouver entering into the fashion world, Acne Studios was Acne Action and essentially known as a denim line. Since those heady early days Acne has developed into one of the powerhouses of the 'contemporary' fashion market and moving into into the luxury market with regular menswear presentations and womens catwalk shows during Paris Fashion Week. As for J+O over our 11 years the collections carried at the store have evolved into catwalk designer lines both confirmed & upcoming and a healthy dose of high end streetwear brands and sneakers. For those not familar with Acne's history then here's a little back ground info ... "Acne Studios is a Stockholm based fashion house with a multidisciplinary approach. Through founder and Creative Director Jonny Johansson’s interest in photography, art, architecture and contemporary culture, an alternative path has been found, turning Acne Studios into a well-respected creator of ready-to-wear, magazines, furniture, books and exhibitions. The collections are defined by Jonny Johansson’s signature juxtaposing design and attention to detail, with an emphasis on tailoring and an eclectic use of materials and custom developed fabrics. The collections cover men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, footwear, accessories and denim."
