    Acne Brand Reboots Denim

    Upscale Swedish fashion brand Acne started out with denim in 1997. After veering into knit and outerwear, Creative Director Jonny Johansson thinks the time is right to trim and reboot the item that put them on the map. Acne's new line of premium denim, ranging in price from 190 to 330 euros, will be hitting the stores soon. Their newly fabricated denim has less stretch with a more traditional feel; the new styles have been trimmed to three cuts: baggy, straight, and skinny. "There's no question value denim has gotten better," analyst Marshal Cohen tells Business of Fashion, referring to Uniqlo and Zara. "That put a lot of pressure on high-end denim."
