A Valentine’s Day without lingerie is like a fish without a bicycle, so we asked Araks to help get you into the spirit. The result is this subtly spartan little number that celebrates your beauty in its natural state of being, made exclusively for Valentine’s Day at Ace Hotel New York. We love her grounded sensibility and nuanced sense of style. The Ace x Araks Teddy is made in New York of sheer, fog-hued cotton crepe, with slate tulle trim, adjustable straps, ruching detail in the front and lower back, and custom Ace x Araks label. This is what we like to wear when we’re smoking a cigarette (don’t try it, bad for you), absorbing the moonglow through an open window, Lou Reed on the record player… opening a letter… lip syncing the lyrics to “Venus in Furs.”
You can pick it up at Ace Hotel New York, at Araks Online, or on our shop — pairs nicely with an Ace x Uslu Airlines manicure, a good cup of coffee and an overhead view of a rain-slicked street. We’re offering a friendly break on all items on our shop through Valentine’s Day with code LOVESHWAG, so take your pick. And, yes, we were being ironic about the fish on a bicycle thing — thanks Gloria!
