Waves with teeth, by Arik Acosta for Igloo 7th Anniversay Exhibit and Bazzar

Here’s Arik Acosta’s (Eternal Ruler Zine) submission for Igloo’s 7th Anniversary Exhibit & Bazaar. Before making his move to to Japan, he was kind enough to give me an Artist Proof on top of the print that I had purchased (which are still available at Igloo). Sayonara dude.

Alex Calderwood Ace Hotel

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting two of the Ace Hotels within the last few years and I must say that they pretty much sum up how I want every hotel stay to be like. In a recent interview with BlackBook, Alex Calderwood reveals his combination of good taste and the fearless business plan behind his famed Ace Hotel chain and Rudy’s Barbershops. Read the interview here.

Down below are photos taken by Sebastian Kim at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club during the Coachella Music Festival. Roll over the images for captions. Check the rest of them out here.
