Going beyond the confines of what we classify as Scandi minimalism Acne Studios is a master at making the simplest of pieces complex and original. Take the Dolina dress, for example. What might look like a straightforward shirt-style silhouette is cleverly cut and folded for an asymmetric fit that only looks effortless: note the purposefully skewed collar and tucked waist. The deep side slits make it easy to slip on solo or layer over trousers.
Swedish design collective ACNE was founded in 1997 by Jonny Johansson. Initially specialising in jeans the brand now is a byword for modern classics infused with Scandinavian cool as seen in the likes of Stella and Elle.
