Under Mikael Schiller's management, fashion label ACNE has evolved beyond its ‘Scandinavian denim’ roots. Diverse assignments in advertising, furniture design and publishing have helped establish the group as a respected media production agency and design studio.

The studio produces a bi-annual publication, ACNE Paper, a large format magazine that invests in decent editorial content, photography and paper-stock. Steering clear of direct branding and trend-related content, the bi-annual paper sits marginally outside the fashion realm.

ACNE’s business structure is as broad as its creative remit. Whilst the company is now beyond the scale where each project can personally bear the mark of a single individual’s handiwork, Schiller has managed to foster a culture of strong personal identities.

Both Schiller and Jonny Johanssen (the studio’s creative director) manipulate the ‘renaissance man’ trope to explain their breadth of output. Whilst nostalgic and self-invested, it’s nonetheless a fitting way to think about the output of a generation of creatives who are broad-minded and multi-skilled.
