Punky Brewster taught us that feet are made for flossing the inimitable, unmatchable quintessence of you-ness. In that spirit, we present you with three colorways of the Ace Hotel x Generic Surplus Borstal Shoe by Steven Harrington (long ass name), meant for mixing and matching as summer lulls into its balmy dusk. Now up on our shop.

Our pal Steven Harrington is the proud father of a new solo show of paintings, prints, drawings and, yes, sculptures, Inside Out, at Known Gallery in LA. If we could have a life where we lived exclusively among Steven Harrington sculptures, we would be eternally happy. Join Generic Surplus and a gaggle of friendly and awesome people at the opening party tomorrow evening, August 18, from 8 to 11pm at 411 N. Fairfax. If you can’t make the party, the show is up through September 1.


Steven Harrington painted this awesome mural at Ace Hotel & Swim Club during Desert Gold 2012 and he got black paint all up in his custom Generic Man x Ace Hotel x Steve Borstal Shoes. That’s cool. If you want some, snatch up one of the few remaining limited edition pairs on our shop.


Steven Harrington invented a pictorial language of symbols and runes for his collaborative capsule collection with Ace Hotel and Generic Surplus for this year’s Desert Gold: Roadside Attraction pop-up shop. Steven has constructed his vision of a roadside desert pit stop — a place evocative of the odd wonders that dot the blacktop in the wide open spaces, filled with original art and desert-celebratory wares.
The Teepee Tee, California Tee and Long-Sleeve Shirt, Painted Rock Tee, Iconography Tank, Harrington Bandana and Harrington Towel are available now on our online shop. The Borstal Shoe Collection is available for pre-order and available for shipping in early May.

Steven Harrington is painting a ginormous mural on the side of the Commune for Desert Gold 2012. Steven’s also taking a break from his pop-up shop with Generic Surplus, Roadside Attraction, to guest DJ Saturday night in the Amigo Room with Stronghold.
There’s still a handful of rooms available, but they’re going fast. See the full line-up and book a room.

Welcome all ye wanderers and weirdos — Desert Gold lives again. This year, our pal Steve Harrington is putting together a pop-up shop in the Clubhouse that pays homage to road trips, curiosity shops and the forgotten places tucked along the long black river where all the magic happens. He’s also creating a gigantic mural on the side of the Commune and launching a capsule collection inspired by his chalk drawings scattered through the Joshua Tree desert, including a shoe in collaboration with Ace and Generic Surplus exclusively for the event, so if you show up with only a walking stick and a crazed look in your eye, we can at least outfit you with some kicks.
Stay tuned for more interviews with performers as well as our very special 2012 artists in residence.
