Despite its odd name ACNE Jeans, which is actually an acronym for “Ambition to Create Novel Expressions”, ushered in the Scandinavia:n design concept of simplicity & minimalism to the urban fashion scene here in the U.S.  It, along with other Scandinavia:n labels such as Nudie, Cheap Monday, and WeSC, quickly acquired a loyal following among trendsetters on the streets of New York and Los Angeles.

For its Fall 2008 Collection, ACNE partnered with shoe label Tretorn (and fellow Swedish brand) in designing the Phoenix sneakers.  Taking elements from mountaineering boots, the ACNE Jeans x Tretorn – Phoenix Sneakers broke down to the general design cues,  to just a contrast colored rubber outsole, a 100% cotton canvas upper and hiking lacing units.  Though not as “rugged” as mountaineering gears, it is never the less durable and comfortable for a trek through the urban terrain.  The Phoenix is currently available at online retailer oki-ni.
