London
Know how you can trust you’re in good hands in a store? When there’s a wall filled with every single Criterion Collection dvd still in print.
The folks behind some of our favorite clothing and curation and collaborations for the past dozen years — and our roommates at Ace NYC — are getting all extended-stay-cozy at 100 Shoreditch High in London. Welcome, guys. Happy we’re taking our love affair bi-continental.

Palm Springs, CA
So school’s out for Summer. And what did you do with your Summer vacation?
We hung out like indoor kids with Alvaro Ilizarbe, Jean André, Erin D. Garcia and Mtendere Mandowa in the arts & crafts cabin — cutting and gluing and drawing and dunking our way through Ace Hotel & Swim Club’s Summer School 2014, co-presented with School Night Los Angeles and HVW8. We learned, we laughed, we liquored up like high school. 





Thanks to Alternative Apparel, Mailchimp and Nowness for making it possible. It beat the hell out of repeating Algebra 2.

Los Angeles
Like Nina Simone, Cal Ripken, and the congregation of Bull Moose, Ken Burns is an Apple Pie of Americana. In a world that’s increasingly scared to be earnest and vulnerable, it takes guts to embrace and explore the contradictory American Experiment without any added winks or rhetorical backflipping. 
His newest dip into the waters of our past takes on three of a clan who helped shape these United States through the 20th century: The Roosevelts, who covered everything from human rights to stuffed animals to an attempted coup that reads like it was conceived by someone carrying around too many copies of Catcher in the Rye. Tonight at our cathedral to moving pictures and human ingenuity, Mr. Burns and PBS will premier his latest effort. And in a magic little flicker of fortune, we’ve got a select few seats left for the show.

Portland, OR
Tobacco, whiskey, cedar, pine, black pepper. Heather Sielaff’s Olo started in a closet, finds its ingredients in earth and smells like heaven. Ask a sweet-smelling thing on either side of the street in Portland what they’re wearing and the answer’s inevitably “Victory Wolf,” or just “Olo.”
Now Olo’s fragrance laboratory has an IRL home opening this weekend in Southeast Portland. It’s called Milk Milk Lemonade. Heather and Jonathan Sielaff are in the back, blending up bottles of god’s gift to nostrils. The front’s sparse and simple, with complimentary tea service to the side, and Olo’s whole habit-forming line front and center — all bookended by specially curated treats from Dream Collective, Rill Rill, Hazel Cox, Erica Weiner, No. Studio, Morihata and more. 
They’re opening house tomorrow, with occasional hours through the summer, and regular hours starting September.

You got this, girl.


Pioneertown, CA
It’s a mirage, right? 
Deep in the High Desert of the Yucca Valley — north of Palm Springs, past the anachronistic edifice of Hollywood-fabricated Pioneertown — there’s a wooden arrow that reads “Gods Way Love.” The arrow aims down an ambling dirt road to a strange oasis — a place with fruit-bearing gardens, ponds thick with lilypads and koi, a family of chickens, gardens full of crystals and magnetic minerals. 
Garth Bowles bought some 640 acres of California desert back in 1981, with a dream of simpler living. He’s spent the last decade adhering to the principles of permaculture to help reshape the landscape of Boulder Gardens — transforming the grounds through ecological engineering to foster and sustain a natural wellspring of water, and through it, agriculture. 

With a half dozen or so semi-permanent structures — teepee, yurt, outdoor kitchen, sauna, etc — Boulder Gardens is Garth’s sacred space, where he welcomes the curious with disarming empathy all year round.
