(Acne Jeans hep raw)
Barneys Coop is having a huge sale on select women’s and men’s Acne styles, but sizes are quite limited. $59-$89 for some Acne, anyone? They really go a bum good. (If you don’t try before you buy, these jeans run quite small so consider ordering 1-2 sizes up).
Read JC Report’s interview with the North American brand manager here – she even explains why they cost what they do – ie. the tailoring, made in Italy. Their cuts have always been superior; they look great on guys and girls, and the rear pockets are large and very flattering. For girls, the “Hep” and “Hex” are the classic standards, but I am quite taken with their “Hug” style – though the carrot silhouette probably fits a very particular bodytype (tall and slim) best.
Though Acne denim has garnered a great deal of attention in recent years, their entire collection of men’s and women’s clothing, and expanding footwear and accessories collections also mirror all their jeans are – well cut, well made, both classic and unusual.
