Sydney, July 26th, 2017 – Tonight Acne Studios celebrated the opening of the brand new Acne Studios Sydney CBD store. Held at the new King Street store, notable guests that attended the cocktail reception included Carmen Hamilton, Brooke Testoni, Kitty Callaghan, Renee Sydney, Alys Hale and Ollie Henderson. Guests enjoyed live music from street artists, Faye Zoey and Nathan Lagesse whilst enjoying a selection of alternative canapes and drinks provided by Studio Neon.
The 390 m2 store, stocking full collections for women and men, sits on the corner of King and Elizabeth Street, with an L-shaped space that has been designed to create its own expressive world. Stainless steel walls curve through the pastel yellow store, giving a processional feeling that guides the customer through the space, as if an alternate universe made from specific design decisions.
“We opened our first store in Sydney in 2009 and since then the Australian market has been very close to our hearts. Now it feels great to open a large second store in the central of Sydney, the space being a good representation of the present day Acne Studios universe.” – Mikael Schiller, Chairman
Acne Studios King Street opens on the corner of King and Elizabeth Street on 27 July.
