Just Landed: Alpha Industries at Ace Hotel
In collaboration news: Trendy Belltown hotel meets southern military outerwear to create a modern weather-friendly parka.
You might have heard us harping on the cool collaboration theme happening around the city, where designers, venues, restaurants, and shops are constantly working together to create exciting collections and events—but here's a totally new one: trendy Belltown hotel meets southern military outerwear.
Introducing the Ace Hotel and Alpha Industries waterproof fishtail parka.
The waterproof nylon design, based on the US Army M-65 fishtail parka, features dry-seam sealed technology and an adjustable hood and waist—perfect for on-trend military layering this spring.
Tennessee-based Alpha Industries has been making military issued garments for the past 50 years, and only recently began branching out into casual heritage wear. In-house designers at the Ace Hotel worked with the southern brand to create the modern, architecturally inspired parka.
Find the jacket for $300 at the Belltown Ace Hotel location, or in the gift shops of the chain's Portland and New York outposts. And maybe hurry—it's not going to stop raining any time soon.
