Number (N)ine have unvealed their Fall/Winter line for later this year in Paris as Takahiro Miyashita of Number (N)ine unveiled an inspired collaboration with the Ace Hotel Portland. The show entitled ‘My Own Private Portland’ really enriched with a grunge feel opened with an Ace Hotel voicemail message which really set the tone with Portland-made Pendleton wool blankets were at the guests dispose. The utilitarian wool blankets are emblazoned with the Thompson elk, a historical statue located in downtown Portland. Modeled on classic Pendleton hotel blankets, they represent Portland and the collection’s vintage feel. Ace and Number (N)ine are currently collaborating to create additional products which will be released this fall. You can buy the blankets at Number (N)ine’s Manhattan flagship store, and soon they’ll be at the Ace’s forthcoming NYC outpost.
Miyashita incorporates the Ace into his work as it really exemplifies Portland: luxe but irregular, with echoes of a rough-and-tumble history. Miyashita’s nod to grunge fits with the Ace’s historical consciousness and place in a living cultural center. Take a look at the collection below.
