Acne Studios’ New NYC Store
The Stockholm, Sweden-based brand Acne Studios opened its second NYC-based store earlier this week. The brand’s 120 m² store is located in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood, about a mile away from the Soho flagship. The shop, which was designed by acclaimed architect Sophia Hicks, was unveiled on Tuesday during a cocktail party, where guests could browse through the current Acne collections and take in the one-of-a-kind interior design. “We wanted to do something futuristic in a way, like almost feeling that you could be walking through a store in Hong Kong or Tokyo rather than the West Village,” said chairman of the board Mikael Schiller of the new Horatio Street location. Take a look at the new digs in the images below, as well as a few photos from Tuesday’s cocktail party. Also if you’re in the NYC area, be sure to visit the store in person at 54-60 8th Ave.
