Sleep tight.
Unparalleled object periodical THE THING Quarterly recently released their twenty-second edition, and it’s a doozy: a new work by American treasure John Baldessari. Like all of THE THING's things, it's meant to be used — two standard sized pillowcases silkscreened with a film still from Baldessari’s collection, a mise en abyme of a tranquil, anonymous woman clutching a pillow.
It’s beautiful, and we’ve got some in our shop.

"In 1950 out of sheer necessity, my husband Mr. Harold Morris and myself went into business as Industrial Clothing Specialists. 
Gloverall of London were the first clothiers to make the traditional Military and Naval Duffle coats available to civilians … In the 1950-60’s the Gloverall Duffle became a sartorial Symbol of Social Renegades. Angry young men, art students, and Beatniks favoured the Duffle coat.” — Excerpt from the Gloverall Story.
We had the honor of collaborating with the eternal English clothier for our Ace x Gloverall Duffle Coat — an update on a true British classic. It’s a thing of beauty, and you can find it here.

We made a batch of hand-screened t-shirts in anticipation of our sally into Londontown. This one right here is inspired by a typeface by Josef Albers.

If somebody scoped your skating spot via satellite while you were in mid-swagger on one of our new Ace x Shut Skateboards Dazzle Camo Decks we’re not sure if they’d be frankly overwhelmed by your freshness or just not see you at all. Therein lies the mystery of dazzle — patterns used by US and British naval ships to stay off the radar during the war to end wars, and the one that followed shortly after. The camouflaging properties of dazzle are an unsettled science but its flyness has been a matter of public record since naval camofleurs and Cubists began to infiltrate and inspire each other’s respective circles. Our bedazzled deck is the latest from our ongoing partnership with the Lower East Side’s Shut Skateboards, makers of decks and gear for riders on the meanest city streets since ‘86.

We discovered the cryptic, maze-like work of Aaron De La Cruz in the pages of Arkitip, and knew we had to find him. Our friends at Arkitip asked him if he’d work with us at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, and he jumped on board. He created two limited screenprint editions of 230 to spellbind our guests in their rooms. We’ve got signed and numbered batches of 50 of each on the shop. Edition 1 is screenprinted on white 80 lb. paper, Edition 2 on 80 lb. natural. Like a book or a forest or your true love’s eyes, they’re easy to get lost in.

Colors Magazine unflinchingly contemplates the intersection of media, politics, social media and the people’s power in issue 86, now on the Ace shop, revealing the backstage of contemporary journalism. With stories on drone-wielding paparazzi, terrorist press releases and anti-mafia vigilante television anchors, Making the News explores how world events are selected, shaped, and sent to you in time for breakfast.
Here, a glimpse into stories on Mexican bloggers read closely by the FBI, handwritten post-tsunami Japanese newspapers scribed by glow of flashlight, guerilla social media lessons in Cairo, and head count differentials for Russian protests between mainstream media and independent journalists, plus a glimpse into Colors’ Yellow Pages. The lot of it makes for alarming, engaging, enraging and inspiring summer reading.

“Phyllis Galembo’s interest in the masquerade traditions of Africa and its diaspora began twenty five years ago, with her first visit to Nigeria. Since then, she has travelled widely in west and central Africa, and regularly to Haiti, making portraits that document and describe the transformative power of the mask. Her subjects are participants in masquerade events, both traditional African ceremonies and contemporary fancy dress and carnival, all of whom use costume, body paint and masks to create mythic characters – sometimes entertaining and humorous, often dark and frightening, and always powerful and thrilling. Titled after the Haitian Kreyòl word for mask, Maske is the first comprehensive collection of these portraits.”

One of our favorite books to carry: MASKE by PHYLLIS GALEMBO

We may not share a street corner with Mohawk General Store, or even a neighborhood, but knowing that we share as much as distantly linked power wires and cellular data molecules in the stilted summer air of Los Angeles makes us happy. Go in, get this book and say hi to our friends.

If you’re on the other coast, you can pick up prints by Phyllis Galembo at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York.

This prescription for a life lived all top down and outside the yellow lines made its way into a mezzanine drawer at Ace Hotel Portland and was found by an unsuspecting individual in need of some advice. The exact provenance is something of a mystery — though we believe the 5-step program, if not the transcription, to be the sage advice of a person six years of age, named Lucien. The Advice From Lucien Poster is our first in a series we’re creating in-house and with some of our favorite artists and young philosophers. It’s screenprinted in Portland on 250 gsm stone blue paper in a limited edition of 150. The word so far is it can really help out your life-living game.
