Ace Your Look – Block Shop x Ace Hotel Palm SpringsAuthor:Abigail Stone
If you’re headed to Palm Springs for Modernism Week, the yearly ten-day celebration of all things midcentury modern, it’s likely that Ace Hotel Palm Springs is on your bucket list. The fish tacos at their King’s Highway Diner and a selfie in front of the bright striped mural on the Commune wall, designed by Los Angeles based design studio, Block Shop, are two musts on your desert to do list.
To ensure that you have the full “oasis in the desert” experience, the Hotel’s Ace Hotel Shop is offering an exclusive capsule collection, designed and produced by the studio that will ensure you’ll pass for a local. The lightweight robe, generous scarf and oversized linen throw, hand printed in Block Shop‘s signature patterns and dyed in a desert inspired palette, are the ideal pieces to summerize your winter wardrobe.
“We were so taken by the mural that Block Shop created for Ace Hotel Palm Springs that we immediately looked for deeper ways to foster the collaboration,” said Kelly Sawdon, Partner and Chief Brand Officer at Ace Hotel Group. “This capsule collection feels like an extension of the mural — rooted in the California desert and showcasing the sisters’ signature geometric shapes — but with tactile pieces you can keep close to you.”
“We’ve been guests at Ace Hotel & Swim Club since it opened nearly a decade ago — our favorite place to lounge, swim, and sleep,” says says Hopie Stockman who co-founded the brand along with her sister Lily. “Hand block printed in signature Block Shop patterns, our capsule collection is an ode to the art of lazing poolside in the Palm Springs winter sun.”
