Street Wear Stores that Boutique Hotels Should Work with

BLLA predicts that collaborations are the next greatest trend in hospitality. It’s all about working together to help each other. For instance, street-wear is the most powerful fashion trend for 2017. Even Louis Vuitton partnered with Supreme to launch a collection together (two brands you wouldn’t think would even be in the same category) as they saw the opportunity of helping each other and overlapping different markets to see the vision of both brands. The Ace Hotel’s “gift shop” is none other than one of the first modern fashion disruptors, Opening Ceremony. It’s amazing because these boutique travelers are able to relate to the hotel’s official gift shop because this only adds to the guest experience. The hotel experience and the modern retail experience both have similar visions as they both emphasize innovation and originality. BLLA predicts that this is only the start, that the boutique travelers will see this grow as boutique hoteliers continue to realize the significance of partnerships.

“Brand was founded in 2009 by two brothers from Europe living in NYC with a background of skateboarding culture. They had a vision to emphasize the depths of art, fashion, and lifestyle; aiming to make their own spot within the realm of creativity. Starting off small and independent, they turned a living room into a handmade screen-printing studio. Gradually growing, they then started a garment production in Europe and opened the first store in New York City, 2014”
