Our friend Louise Du Toit took time out of
her busy schedule as the North American Sales
Director for Acne to scoot around and eat some
pancakes in an online photo series/lookbook for
the ever so awesome Saturdays Surf NYC. With recently
having the pleasure of having Louise around over the
holidays, these are both a pleasant surprise &
painful reminder that she has left us.

Louise you look boss! Come back soon!

As proud retailers, we highly encourage you to check out the article and make your way down to the shop to see what FW09 has to offer for both men and women from the creative collective that is Acne.

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.
Blend interviews Jon Johannsson, creative director of Acne

Spring (in January)

Posted Jan 27, 2008 by Emanuel in filippa k, acne, nudie jeans

A blizzard hit Edmonton today. Spring may be over two months away, but I think most of us need a good dose of spring cheer. Luckily, GPTG received its first spring '08 shipment this past week at both our locations from some of our favorite Swedish brands (click on a photo to expand it in a new window):

We received a fair assortment of both men's and women's cardigans from Filippa K as well as this delightfully white (and spring-time bright) jacket, which remains true to many of the brand's signature details.




Filippa K Summer Field Jacket, $399 CAD


Acne Jeans impresses with the Clerk trench coat, as well. The detachable hood has a ridiculous amount of charm.



Acne Jeans Clerk, $800 CAD


Check out the super-cool Spike bag. Constructed from the same stuff wetsuits are made of (Neoprene) with a sturdy leather bottom, this bag can double as a suave diaper tote or as a carry-on when traveling. Or when you just need to look good!



Acne Jeans Spike Weekend Travel Bag, $300 CAD


For those wanting eco-friendly fashion, Nudie Jeans offers some eye-catching alternatives with their Organic line.



Nudie Jeans Tim Organic V-Neck, $75 CAD
Nudie Jeans Grim Tim in Clean Steel Wash, $250 CAD


Nudie Jeans Sune Organic Boxer Brief in Screens Print, $49 CAD
Nudie Jeans Bosse Organic Tank Top in Ornaments Print, $49 CAD

Recurring throughout many past seasons, we've received some updated prints in the classic Nudie Bosse Tank and Sune Boxer Brief for spring '08 (also from their Organic line). Take a look at some of the patterns we have in addition to the ones shown above.

Left to right: Non-Stop (Organic), Optic, Window, Orchid


Swedish denim is a must-have. Check out the high-waisted Acne Needle Print, the Acne Max Easy for men (my personal favorite), and for those guys who need some color in their lives, the Filippa K M. Steve Twill Jean in Lilac.



Acne Jeans Needle in Print Wash, $375 CAD



Acne Jeans Max in Easy Wash, $300 CAD



Filippa K M. Steve Twill Jean in Lilac Wash $225 CAD

Or at least your toes. Can't make it in? Give us a ring at either of our locations or fire off an e-mail, we'll be happy to help you out!
