Ace & Jig Fall 2015

My love for Brooklyn based design duo Ace & Jig knows no bounds. I first found the brand last summer when one day I found myself stopping two separate girls in my neighborhood to ask where their lovely dresses were from, and they both said Ace & Jig! Since then, I've been hooked on A&J's uniformly comfy, high quality and wearable pieces. Though at first glance the clothes can look a little hippy hippy shake, and they certainly don't come cheap, the brand feels refreshingly clean, young and modern on, and my experience is that the pieces wash and wear like a dream. Their latest campaign video for their Fall 2015 collection, "Cancelled" was fashion directed by beautiful oddball Ana Kras, and features mega babe model Alexandra Marzella having one seriously beautiful night in at her fancy hotel. Of course it's about the clothes, but it's also about independence and self-love (ahem, literally in one scene)  and it made me laugh over and over again with recognition. Well worth a watch.


I'm lusting for this and this. And this!


Are you a free-lovin iphone-phobic extroverted introvert like the main character in the film? (raises hand) Then definitely read this breath of fresh air piece of writing by one of my besties.
