Acne, Byredo Parfums Burn One Down
Acne’s Jonny Johansson proved that he works well with others when he joined forces with Lanvin earlier this year to create a line of universally coveted denim, and to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out he’s embarked on another collaboration. Teaming up with Ben Gorham, fellow Swede and founder of Byredo Parfums, Johansson has commissioned a scented candle that will receive a proper coming-out party at the Acne Studio at 10 Greene Street on Thursday between 7 and 11 p.m. Lilla Nygatan 23, dreamed up by the renowned perfumer Olivia Giacobetti and named after the Stockholm address of Acne Collective’s new home in an old seventeenth-century building, is meant to smell of cold stone, warm woods, and traditional incense. It opens with artemisia and peppercorn when lit and gives way to traces of myrrh and cedarwood as it burns. If you can’t make it to the party, Barneys will be stocking the candles exclusively after the Fashion’s Night Out festivities subside.
