A One-Night-Only French Flea Market Comes to Ace Hotel NY This Friday
What are you doing this Friday night, September 10? If you're in New York City, whether you want to or not you will probably get swept up in some of the Fashion's Night Out hoopla, and no hotel is doing it bigger than the good old Ace Hotel New York. Together with the trendsetting hipster haven Opening Ceremony, which recently opened a brand store at The Ace, the hotel will turn its moody lobby into a French flea market for one night only.
Inspired by the "famous Parisian market Les Puces de Saint-Ouen," the Ace's market will bring limited-edition goods from some of OC's favorite designers into the space with their own flea market booths: "In keeping with our USA vs. France country collaboration, the 'puces' will have a distinctly Frenchie flair! Get ready for goodies and exclusivities from agnès b., Alexander Wang, Rodarte, Ladurée, Patrik Ervell, Colette, Proenza Schouler, and many more."
Our favorite would have to be the Band of Outsiders cookie booth, where they'll be selling some of the infamously indulgent and creative cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar, but only 113 of them and only of a recipe specially created for the evening, which will never be made again. Good luck getting one of those!
The official Fashion's Night Out festivities take places from 6-10pm on September 10, but some places will party later. We'd recommend stopping by the Ace as early as possible to snag the special items.
