Ace & Jig Fall 2016...Launching July 1st
Even though most of the country is currently battling record high summer temps, I most definitely have autumn (undoubtedly my favorite season of the year) on my mind. As we shift away from this past season's collections of muted palettes, tissue weight fabrics, and delicate textures I am looking forward to making the shift to rich colors, chunky knits, and all manners of layering.
One of the most anticipated collections for fall is Ace & Jig. Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson took inspiration from teddy girls, a genre of the mid-century modern era. Emerging in the 1950's, this group is widely considered to be the first British female youth subculture. Primarily consisting of the working class, these young women were marked by their neo-Edwardian aesthetic, responding to post World War II austerity. It was a decidedly feminine spin on a more masculine way of dressing.
This influence is apparent in Vaughan's and Wilson's work, as seen in their exaggerated leg trousers, cropped jackets, and Victorian collars. The color range for this season is bold. And as always, the fabrics are easily mixable and matchble to create the distinctive Ace & Jig layered look.
Thankfully, we won't have to wait much longer for this collection to drop. Our online pre-sale will begin promptly at midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on July 1st. Until then, enjoy perusing the lookbook at vogue.com and set those alarm clocks!
