The Ultimate Best Friend Trip to Big Sur
Ace&jig’s designers show us the way.
While we’re all for tropical getaways and days spent rolling around in the sand (actually take me there RTFN please), there’s something to be said for a cozy vacation spent on misty cliffs or in a redwood forest. Doesn’t that sound terrific?
It certainly did to ace&jig designers Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, who packed up and headed to Big Sur after wrapping up their spring collection. It should also be noted that the sort of pattern-heavy, super-soft clothing the duo make is exactly what you’d want to wear while exploring Big Sur—meaning, their trip made for some incredible photos.

“After the whirlwind of completing our ace&jig spring ’17 collection, we took a much-needed hiatus on the remarkable California coastline of Big Sur. Before embarking on the textile creation process of our next season and leaving our chaotic and colorful studios behind, we met in this coastal town tucked into the jaw-dropping cliffs overlooking the grand Pacific. Packed densely with respite and redwoods, Big Sur offered us (Cary coming from Brooklyn, NY, and Jenna coming from Portland, OR) a much-needed getaway to get together.
