The Barneys New York buying team is just back from Acne’s Stockholm headquarters (and pictured above in head-to-toe pre-fall 2013!). Senior Fashion Director Tomoko Ogura fills us in on the trip’s highlights.

It was a quick trip to the Acne offices, but visually stimulating nonetheless and a great overall experience. What struck us the most (other than the permanent chill in the air) was the very friendly disposition of the Swedes. We were greeted with smiles and hellos everywhere we went. Here’s a glimpse of the moments we enjoyed most.
