acne denim biker jacket

I’m loving these jackets from Acne, built like a typical leather biker with front heavy zip-closure, three zip front pockets and zippered sleeves, only it’s crafted in denim. It features epaulettes and lapels with push buttons. The back hemline is slightly longer, which can be folded and buttoned up.

They’re now available from Acne (1.695 DKK/€228/£200/$308), in black and blue colorways. Great for late spring and renegade summer days! See the model’s having the attitude already.


acne opens flagship store in oslo

Tomorrow, Acne opens its second and flagship store in Oslo, a 200 square meter retail space at Bogstadveien which will house separate Acne Jeans, Men’s and Women’s departments. This new store development comes at a time of financial crisis when Acne can offer high fashion designs at competitive prices. With a style statement of simple, clean and timeless cuts (very Scandinavian), Acne is a good ally for investment wardrobe shopping.

Acne, along with its fashion house, carries a creative collective that includes an advertising agency, a film group, a web/digital production company and Acne Paper, its magazine published twice a year. And come spring 2010, Acne is also launching a furniture line. Talk about development.

Acne Jeans Max Raw Slim Jean

After my successful hunt for a new leather jacket yesterday, I went jeans hunting today. And boy it wasn’t an easy one. Actually, I have been looking for that perfect new pair of dark denim jeans for weeks now. That’s why I miss Viktor Jeans in the Philippines with its made-to-measure jeans and your own choice of fabric, thread color, pocket styles and other fix-ins.

I was about to give up and head home when I stumbled upon a store called Sole Service. I didn’t know they have a selection of Cheap Monday jeans (now you know). I spotted a pair from Acne Jeans and quickly tried it on. It’s made of tough dark denim with over tinted raw wash and contrast stitching, which I like and narrow legs that have enough space for my thunder calves. It’s also the perfect length so I don’t need to have it cut short (and we know how silly your jeans will look without the original hem, or rather expensive to re-affix the hem).

You can always count on this Swedish label for a no non-sense pair of jeans. Although I heard through the grapevine that a Norwegian brand is slowly challenging the competition. (Even Wallpaper* says so!) And they’re called Anti-Sweden. How fun!

rainy day renegade

Oslo today is under gloomy clouds and rain-spattered. Though these pieces spotted at Freudian Kicks bring a spot of fashion inspiration.

Odeur Liquid Knit Grey

Liquid Knit pullover in grey, from Odeur. € 101.50.

I wish I had that collar bone to display! Nonetheless, this is perfect for the chilly weather the coming months. It looks extra comfy, too. Odeur is a Swedish clothing label first started by Anna Lidstrom and Peter Hallstrom in 2006 as a brand experiment based on the molecular structure of a unique “Odeur” fragrance.  With stockists in the UK (oki-ni), Italy, Australia, Spain, USA, Germany and Japan among others.

Acne Dune Navy

Acne Dune Boot in navy, from Acne. € 248.50.

In a gorgeous shade of blue, Acne’s interpretation of the classic desert boot is slightly slimmer than the traditional style. The added rubber pieces in the sole make this a great everyday shoe that won’t wear down easily. Made of cow leather with a naturally varied finish.

Soulland Tartan Mix

Tartan Mix shirt, from Soulland. € 119.50.

Traces of tartan appeared on the runway for this season – from Alexander McQueen and Trussardi to DSquared2 and Bottega Veneta – and I found this clever little mix of tartan prints from Danish label Soulland. I like the use of contrast collar details in my shirts and this one fits the bill. Soulland was established by the young Silas Andler when he was only 17 and since then the company has grown into a serious enterprise. With stockists in New York, London, Berlin, Amsterdam and across Scandinavia.

I want all three! Available at Freudian Kicks with international shipping.
