Brothers Emil and Sandy Corsillo run The Hill-Side. They’ve become good friends over the last year and also happen to make some great looking neck- and pocketware. We brainstormed with them about making something for Ace, and what came about was this small run of scarves, bandanas and pocket squares made from 9oz selvedge, indigo-dyed heavy chambray from Kojima, Japan. The scarf has an affirmation that we hold very true to our hearts — Everything is going to be alright — hand-embroidered by Brooklyn artist Kate Durkin in Queens, NY. The bandana and pocket square are unadorned but for their winsome charm and chiseled jawlines. We have only a handful of each iteration — they’re now up on our online shop, as of today.

These are the prized Ace NYC x Pendleton blankets you have done all manner of things on and under in your guest room at Ace Hotel New York. Made exclusively for Ace New York by our friends at Pendleton, they’ve become an emblem of the Ace experience. If you have the Pendleton x Ace Hotel Portland blanket then you already know how good this one feels.
The blankets are made of pure virgin wool in Pendleton’s Oregon mills, and they’re as non-scratchy soft and warm as they were the last time you stayed with us. They feature the banner New York plaid design and a big custom label for Ace x Pendleton. Lots of people have been asking for them, so we decided to make them available on our shop.
Visit the shop for more products and collaborations - we’re continuously adding more things so stay tuned.

INTERVIEW : HELMY MEMBRENO / ACE HOTEL PORTLAND
This is Helmy. He is a cornerstone of Ace Portland, having been here from before the start. You’ll see his face at the front desk, on our website, on postcards, on our blog, and you might ask yourself, who is this man of mystery? Well, now you can find out. We wanted to ask him about the art show he’s curating with Azsa West at The Cleaners Sunday night, Everything Matters All the Time — who’s involved, what inspired the theme of the night, and what the wide world holds for him now.
Helmy, how long have you been working at Ace Hotel Portland?
I’ve been working for the Ace in Portland since right before they opened in January of 2007 as a front desk agent and later as a supervisor.
What’s the inspiration behind “Everything Matters All the Time”?
Azsa had approached me about doing a solo show in the cleaners and in our meetings, she kept returning to the idea of sacredness. She was asking what is important to us and how do we show honesty through art work. “What is sacred to you?” was the initial question. She showed me some rad drawings of what she was feeling and I, of course, said yes.
It went from a solo show to a group show because of the limited nature of the event, i.e. art up for only one night is a daunting task. We asked the artists what was important to them and to be as transparent as possible. I’ve seen some pieces already and there is some rad shit.
How come you’re not showing art in the show? Not fair….
Uuuhhhh…well, since I like throwing parties and hosting events, I will say that the event is my contribution. Seriously though, I am a big proponent of community and art. There is an art to collaboration and art happenings. It matters to me to contribute to my community and to involve as many parts of it that are willing. Azsa, Publication Studio, Container Corps, Ace Hotel, Sam Korman (Car Hole Gallery), all the artists, and the musicians made this happen. I’m lucky to be in a position to bring all these folk together and make something good happen.  
Tell us about the adventures you have planned for the next year.
I leave for Honduras in less than a month for the winter. I was born there so I am going spend some time with the fam. I’ll probably work here and there but mostly, I will be taking it very easy.

Levi’s and VBS.TV recently went on a trip with a group of Navajo cowboys from the Triple B Association  — a bronco and bull riding league catering to the Indian community of the American Southwest. They tailed several of the Association’s toughest and most up-and-coming riders all across New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado to take a peek into their incredible lives — training and competing in rodeos and the lifestyle that goes with it.

We’re showcasing some selected images from the trip, by photographer Brad Bunyea, in our gallery at Ace Hotel New York from November 15 to December 12. Anyone can come see it, and all guests checked in between now and December 12 will get a special Pendleton x Levi’s Ace NYC keycard holder.

You can also see the video on VBS.TV and get a look at a special product line that inspired the trip, from Pendleton for Levi’s.

Raan, Shea, and Stenn Parton are three brothers who run Apolis Activism, a men’s clothing line out of LA that works to instill social responsibility and global activism in its projects. Recently, they worked with Rapha, a line of cycling clothing and accoutrement, to create the Transit Elite Sweater, their answer to après-ski attire. In December, they went to Kathmandu, Nepal together to meet the people manufacturing the limited run of 225 handmade Apolis Activism x Rapha sweaters. They made a video about their cycling trip, the friends they made, and the craftspeople creating their products.
We like their style. You can follow their blog to stay abreast of their projects and excursions.
