Portas worked with Acne Studios as its lead global agency from 2007 when they were a start-up fashion brand (called Acne Jeans) with a vision to become one of the world’s leading ready to wear labels.

We worked closely with the Acne leadership team to set out their growth roadmap, brand and creative comms, and generally how they presented themselves to the world.

This carefully orchestrated plan that spanned over a five year period started with Acne Paper, and led to collaborations with Lanvin, influential retail partnerships, transition from off schedule presentations, to London and then onto Paris, stand alone store launch and ultimately label dominance with the fashion cognoscenti.
