    Sorry this order number, email or postal code does not match our records. Please check your records and try again and note that the location of the site must be set to the same country as in your shipping address.

    Your order has been placed on a different country-site than what you are currently shopping on. Changing country site will empty your shopping cart.

    Are you sure you want to proceed?

      Please note:
      Important - All UK returns now require commercial invoice documentation to be included. Please fill out all 3 forms included with your order before packing up your return parcel. Country of Origin can be found on the product care label (“Made in ___”). You will need to provide these documents to UPS directly when dropping off your return parcel at a UPS Access Point, or if you schedule a collection.

    • Orders returned to us without a return authorization may face delays in processing.
    • If you are receiving multiple shipments for the same order, please wait until you have received everything to initiate your return and only send unwanted items in one package to avoid delays in processing.
    • Please note that any returns received which do not meet our return policy requirements may be refused.

    Once received, returns take approximately 3-5 business days to process. Upon completion, a refund confirmation email will be generated.

    For exchanges, please allow an additional 1-2 business days processing time for the new item(s) to be prepared and dispatched. Upon completion, a shipment confirmation for your new exchange order will be generated, including your new tracking details.

    Please note that return processing may take additional time during peak seasonal times.

    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

    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.
