Receiving a refund

All returns that are shipped back within the 7-day time period or returned in store will be refunded to the original form of payment. If the complete order is returned the refund will include standard delivery costs from Acne Studios to you. Please note that in case of a written notice and proof of a return to Acne Studios within 7 days upon arrival, we will issue a refund latest on day 7. In case we have not received a written proof of a return, we allow 30 days to issue a refund.

Exchange availability

Exchanges requested online are only processed upon receipt of returned merchandise and are based on stock availability at that time. We are not able to reserve or guarantee stock in advance. Exchanges are shipped to you free of charge. Should you be interested in a different color or style, or if the product page states the product is low in stock, please register your return request for a refund, and simply purchase the new piece(s) separately at acnestudios.com.

Gift returns

Gift orders placed online are eligible for the same return policy as all other online orders. In order to process a return or exchange on a gift purchase (online or in store), we must first locate the original transaction from the purchaser to determine eligibility. This can usually be done easily with the purchaser’s exact name, email address, or the order number itself.

Please note that gift returns for refund can only be issued to the original form of payment (the purchaser’s), and any online exchanges (size only) will by default ship to the original shipping address from the order and email the new tracking details to the purchaser’s email.

Acne Studios quality guarantee

If an item received is classified as faulty and was received damaged, you must contact us within 7 days of receipt.
If items have a manufacturing fault that occurred within a 12-month period from the date of purchase, please contact us immediately.
