Arkitip teams up with Generic Surplus to develop a special collaborative shoe/tote set for the Ace Hotel Palm Springs. Both items are made out of a breathable Cotton mesh material, perfect for the Summertime.
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 shoes, retailing for $85 USD, look to release at select retailers on July 1st, 2009 but are now available for pre-order through Arkitip.com.
