ACE & TATE MEETS | Cool kids on the block

We asked some cool peeps about how they’re wearing our recently released SS17 Pre-Collection frames and where they’ll be taking them in the not too distant summer. What’s the word on the street?

This collection is all about switching off and enjoying the moment, offline. Do you think it’s important to disconnect from social media from time to time?
Marie: The world has never been more connected. Sometimes, you need to take a step back, disconnect from social media and connect with life once again. Most importantly, interact with real people. Live a life that matters so you don’t have to get your satisfaction and fulfilment from likes and shares ever again!

How will you style your new frames?
Anne: I’ll be glad when it’s summer again. My style will be very simple: white T-Shirt, denim hot pants, cap, Nike Air Force and beautiful sunglasses to give my outfit an update.

Will you be taking them to any summer trips and festivals?
Anne&Marie: Of course! We have planned lots of trips this summer and we’re really happy to be taking our new frames with us. One of the festivals we are most looking forward to is Sonar in Barcelona! Sunglasses will be needed all day long!

What’s your favourite summer drink?
Anne: Definitely an ice-cold Mojito. It reminds me of my best trip ever, in Havana.
Marie: An ice-cold coffee. I’m completely addicted to this, even in winter!

The collection is all about switching off and enjoying the moment, offline. Do you think it’s important to disconnect from social media from time to time?
Yes, especially while on vacation. We are always amazed at how refreshed and relaxed we feel after spending some time unplugged. It’s well worth it, once in a while.

How will you style your new frames?
The chunky and bold frames go really well with a laid-back styling. They add a playful vibe and create an interesting juxtaposition.

How do these frames suit your personality?
They are clean-cut but with an element of surprise, just like us 😉

Will you be taking them to any summer trips and festivals?
Absolutely! A road-trip in Portugal and Lollapalooza are already on our list.

What’s your favourite summer drink?
To us there’s nothing better than an Aperol Spritz on an outdoor patio.

This collection is all about switching off and enjoying the moment, offline. Do you think it’s important to disconnect from social media from time to time?
Yes I really do. I recently went to Palma for an “offline” trip for 5 days, it was truly amazing.

Will you be taking your new frames to any summer trips and festivals?
Definitely, I am right now planning a Miami trip where they will fit perfectly.

What’s your favourite summer drink?
Strawberry Mojito.

How will you style your new frames?
I style my new Ace & Tate frames with a slick grey outfit paired with my bomber jacket and sneakers to give it a sturdy twist. Adding a strong accessory like a scarf, a watch or sunglasses is key to complete the entire look.

Why do these frames suit your personality?
Just like its proud new owner, these frames are like a chameleon: they fit almost on everything and everywhere. After wearing my Jo sunglasses for about 10 min, they already felt like home.

Any summer plans you’re excited about?
I can’t wait for the summer to start so my friends and I can spend weekends at the beach, go on last-minute city trips to Berlin, London or Paris. Plus, I really can’t wait to eat ice cream.

How will you style your new frames?
I really like that the frames are oversized! And since they have a modern and minimalistic style to the design, I would probably style them with a cool vintage leather coat, a pair of ripped jeans and a simple white T-shirt. I would then add a pair of sneakers and a black beret!

How do your new frames suit your personality?
Since the new Ace & Tate frames have a simple and modern look, I would say that they fit my personality perfectly. I like to keep things simple – whether it’s how I choose to dress myself or how I look at things in my daily life.

Any summer plans you’re excited about?
Honestly, I would say that the one thing I am looking forward to the most is the warm weather! But I also love spending time in my hometown with my friends and family. I think that summer is all about surrounding yourself with great people and doing fun things.
