Ever wanted the perfect-slip on and tote bag combinaton for sipping cocktails by the sea? Well Arktip have heard your cries and have teamed up with Ace Hotel and shoe makers Generic Surplus to create this creeping canvas creation. The Ace Palm Springs Shoe and Tote is the first in an ongoing collaborative project between Arkitip and Generic Surplus, so look out for more from these brands in the future!
The Ace Hotel Palm Springs Shoe and Tote was designed and developed from the collaborative process between Arkitip, the Ace Hotel and Generic Surplus. In creating a shoe for the Ace Hotel we sought to capture the essence of Palm Springs and the eclectic style of the hotel grounds. We developed a new mesh material that’s breathable for the desert heat, quick drying and non-slip for the pool side servers. Considering the Palm Springs environment and the design elements of the hotel, the creation of this new mesh material lends itself perfect to manage water and the desert heat. The Ace Tote, made out of this same mesh material, was then added as the perfect satchel to carry all the daily essentials from your room to the pool.
