London’s schedule boasts iconic British designer brands such as Paul Smith, Jasper Conran and Betty Jackson to world-class emerging designer businesses such as Christopher Kane, Erdem, Marios Schwab and Richard Nicoll.
New this season Acne has developed a cult following in London since its emergence in 1997 with its award winning denim, leather and signature wearability. Acne’s connection with London has been reinforced recently with the opening of its first UK flagship store on Dover Street in Mayfair.
Jonny Johansson, Creative Director, Acne, commented “For me London has a great energy and momentum at the moment. I love the English way of clashing heritage and contemporary.”
