Peter Jensen: Screen Testing

Posted Jan 26, 2009 by Emanuel in peter jensen

Peter Jensen's quirky intelligence and clever cheekiness has always been apparent within his collections. This screen-test paints a very charming portrait of the designer's general disposition. Thanks to Natalie, manager at Gravitypope Tailored Goods Vancouver for the tip (via Cultures In Between)!



And just in case you wanted to see this season's full runway collection, entitled "Jodie" (think Foster)...

ACNE in Blend Magazine

Posted Jan 13, 2009 by Emanuel in acne, acne studios, acne

A lot of people who are first introduced to Acne are immediately abashed at the daring acronym.  Luckily, the Dutch based publication, Blend, has a wonderfully thorough interview with Acne's creative director Jonny Johannsson, who gives a comprehensive history of the design studio's growth from its humble roots as a four person creative collective.
The acronym Acne as a label name is quite a daring brand name to have. How did this happen?
One of the guys in the collective was working in the advertising industry and he had some projects before. And he had the name “Ambition To Create Novel Expression†as a label name and we wanted this as a acronym. He was working on a project with the school at the time on acronym advertisements. I wanted to stick with this name because I felt it was important to speak about what kind of brand we should be. I think Michael the CEO told me about a survey they did in the top university of Stockholm, about the power of different words. They asked like a 1000 students what they associated with Acne, and over 60% said the jeans label versus skin problems. After awhile the meaning of a name becomes nothing.
