Canadian-based fashion line Kit & Ace is currently on the hautest road trip across America.
Prior to expanding its brand, which is known for its “Technical Cashmere,” across America, the Vancouver company has decided to embark on what the clothing line has dubbed the “Grand Tour” to soak in the best of the American culture, all while hosting pop-up shops.
Kit & Ace kicked off the Grand Tour with a “Dirty Laundry” party at the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs. Party-goers sipped the brand’s signature Copper Tonic No.1 cocktail and danced to the music of DJ Alex Merrell as well as mingled with a herd of baby goats, which was there to pay homage to its cashmere roots.
The first leg of the tour, which commenced in April, is taking place throughout the west coast. Thus far, Kit & Ace has visited San Diego, Newport Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Big Sur, San Francisco, Sonoma, Portland, Seattle, Yellow Stone National Park, Salt Lake City, Denver, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon and Tucson.
Other uber-cool highlights of the tour include interviewing Rverie magazine founder, writer and filmmaker Laura Piety and Philip Pretty, who is the Executive Chef of Fundamental LA and a soon-to-be SoCal restaurateur, and athlete-turned-artist Paul Michel. Kit & Ace also hosted a number of Supper Clubs throughout the west coast.
On July 7th , Kit & Ace was spotted setting up the Copper Studio outside the clothing line’s new shop on Vine Street in Cincinnati. The company also toasted to the grand opening of its new shop.
Kit & Ace will be traveling in an Airstream trailer called the Copper Studio, which the brand conceived in 2014 by J.J. and Shannon Wilson. The copper-clad trailer was created in partnership with Airstream experts Hofmann Architecture to replicate the brand’s airy t-shirt shops. It’s interior is decked out in the clothing line’s signature ash wood and stocked with the Technical Cashmere t-shirts Kit & Ace are famous for.
