Merging streamlined silhouettes with contemporary low-key detailing, such as silver-toned hardware, Acne Studios' shoes perfectly illustrate Scandinavian minimalism. From jet-black ankle boots to all-white trainers with chunky rubber soles, the footwear infuses an urban feel to any ensemble. Championed by street style icons, the label's pointy velvet slippers will turn heads in envy when matched with cropped trousers and an oversized blazer.
THE JENSEN BOOTS
Launched in 1996 as a creative collective, the name Acne origins from the acronym 'Ambitions to Create Novel Expressions'. Primarily focusing on graphic design, film and advertising, it was a year later that the Stockholm-based brand earned great popularity due to its limited edition unisex jeans with red stitching. Soon after, Acne Studios expanded their portfolio with a ready-to-wear collection, followed by footwear and women's accessories.
Taking inspiration from modern art and cultural movements, the label creates trendsetting designs capturing the signature aesthetic of a neutral colour palette, timeless cuts and high-quality materials. A favourite everyday staple of many are the Jensen shoes; comfortable block-heeled ankle boots with a pointy, metal-trimmed front.
TAKE A MINIMAL APPROACH
Swedes are known for their minimalistic, yet style-savvy take on fashion. That is why we look at the streets of Stockholm to compile two outfits perfect for any occasion. When mastering effortless styling, we advocate marrying our favourite wardrobe essentials; combine Acne Studios trainers with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a V-neck shirt and black leather jacket. A Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, Ray-Bans and a chunky wool scarf will give the look an urban-cool finish.
In the evening, follow the likes of Elin Kling and coordinate a trouser suit with brown leather pumps. Alternatively, for those who favour flat shoes, opt for babouche-shaped Amina slippers, which fuse contemporary elements with a vintage design.
