Brand Spotlight | Ace & Jig

Looking for a little printspiration? Then look no further than Brooklyn-based brand Ace & Jig. Launched in 2009, this eclectic label was created by designers – and close friends – Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson. This creative super team launched their label with the idea of creating a line of clothing that was timeless, seasonless and effortlessly chic. And all it takes is a quick look at their Spring/Summer 2017 collection to know that they’ve definitely succeeded. Loose fitting silhouettes and stunning fabrics are the two main components of this brand’s magic fashion formula and every piece is as comfy as it is head-turning. Cary and Jenna draw most of their creative inspiration from their own textile collections, including antique French linens and Japanese boro quilts. This worldly influence is clearly present in their aesthetic and all of the fabrics they use for Ace & Jig are 100% original and are woven in India using ancient wooden hand looms. India’s culture is intricately woven throughout the fabric of the brand (both literally and figuratively) and each piece is created ethically and with compassion. Workers in India are provided with childcare and organic produce, ensuring that their physical and family needs are more than met while working. The ornate textiles that these artisans create are nothing short of breathtaking and every season of Ace & Jig is like a smorgasbord of different textures, patterns, and colours. Although Cary and Jenna show their love for all types of patterns (jacquard, gingham, plaid, checkers), stripes are their all time favorite, and you will never see an Ace & Jig collection devoid of stripes. Whether they are thick or pencil thin, every collection has a refreshing take on this classic print. So if you can’t get enough of stripes, then you’re going to fall in love with this quirky label!

Ace & Jog’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection is earthy and rustic, saturated with a mix of subdued neutrals and oceanic blues. Gingham and, of course, stripes are splashed throughout the collection. I absolutely love the multicolour gingham pantsuit (the print is called Madras) and the comfy Ojai crop top (in solstice – a pale fawn and white pattern). These pieces are comfy and effortless – perfect for lounging around or a summer picnic with the family. There are so many pieces from this collection that I’m lusting over, but these top 10 are my ultimate favorites!
