December 18, 2013

Swedish brand Acne Studios has opened its first West Coast store in Los Angeles, according to wwd.com. The 5,000-sq.-ft. store, located at 855 S. Broadway, marks the retailer’s largest store in the world with an ilcaffè coffee shop. Currently, the brand has 40 locations, including company-owned stores, in-store shops and franchises. Part of the company’s global expansion plans, the Los Angeles store follows new units in Paris, London and Osaka, Japan, this year. An additional location is planned for Seoul, where Acne Studios currently has two stores with partner Shinsegae. Other possible cities for future stores include: Hong Kong, New York (home to a flagship at 33 Greene St.), Miami and San Francisco.
