Ace & Jig

Ace & Jig‘s claim to fame is its cornucopia of custom fabrics. For Fall, designers Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson trotted them out in more saturated hues than usual, taking the curated-bazaar aesthetic of their burgeoning brand to the next level. Prints were inspired by everything from oil paintings, circuses, and Delftware ceramics to Japanese denim and vintage saris (the duo visit the fair-trade Indian factory that produces their textiles twice annually). The resulting pieces smacked of the seventies and Ibiza, but Talitha Getty glamour it ain’t. Ace & Jig’s yoked blouses, peasant skirts, and slouchy overcoats made for breezy ensembles but came up short on polish in a way that made them challenging to fathom within the bounds of, say, a Manhattanite’s wardrobe. But brownstone bohemians of Park Slope, rejoice: Your laissez-faire layering just got a bit easier.
