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.

coming soon to gravitypope for fall 2009

Posted Jul 24, 2009 by gravitypope in repetto, acne, fall 2009, marc by marc jacobs, georgina goodman

This is one the best times of the year. Sale prices get slashed and all of the new and amazing product for fall 2009 starts to come in as well. We've already uploaded some great new men's shoes and new women's shoes at gravitypope. But some of the highly anticipated brands are yet to come in and today we wanted to do a little feature on some of the shoes we at gravitypope just can't wait to receive.

For men, this has to be the Quoddy moccasins, hand made in Maine since 1909. These are exceptional in quality, craftsmanship and style and all are signed by the craftsman who made them as well. Want to know when they arrive? Stay informed by signing onto the gravitypope newsletter for Quoddy and all of our new fall collections will start to come in. Marc by Marc Jacobs is always highly anticipated; their fall winter 09 collection has some great styles that Fashion Magazine noted in their most recent August 2009 issue. The blue nubuck peep toe with geometric heel is a guaranteed show stopper while the crocodile printed loafer offers an academic feel and would look amazing on any prof or student as they stroll across quad.

Platforms are definitely making their mark this season (have you seen T & F Slack?) and the Acne atacombe is the modern version for fall 2009. Acne has been a gravitypope favorite for years and with such attention to detail, the Swedish label/design studio is garnering well deserved attention. More Acne clothing and Acne footwear can be found at gravitypope.com with some great spring summer collections recently marked down.

Booties are extremely popular this year with many designers, but a beautiful bootie is yet to come from Gerogina Goodman. Always a great choice when looking for a heel that will stand out, Georgina Goodman's patent toe cap bootie is feminine and stunning with a beautiful floral print by Erdem Moralioglu. Many on staff are dying to see this one in person.

Repetto has always had a name when it comes to ballet flats, but the recent fervor of Kate Moss wearing the jackson (in honour of the late and great Micheal Jackson) has caused a complete sell through in Europe. Don't worry, the gravitypope order is coming and should be here soon. If you want to know when, sign onto the gravitypope newsletter or check back here on the gravitypope shoe blog and you'll be one of the first to know when it arrives.

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.
