Whether you’re looking for a Father’s Day gift, a birthday surprise, a graduation present or something to treat yourself, the Ace Hotel Shop has something for everyone.

Atelier Ace X Wings & Horns Robe $160

Atelier-Ace-X-Wings-&-Horns-Robe

I actually own one of these Atelier Ace X Wings & Horns robes, and let me tell you, it is the most comfortable thing. It’s like wearing your most worn out, lived in hoodie, but with the length of a robe. I especially love to use it as a second layer when it’s freezing outside. Get one for yourself. Buy another for your loved ones. Trust me, this robe is top notch.

Atelier Ace X Slowtide Ice Cube Towel $42

Atelier-Ace-X-Slowtide-Ice-Cube-Towel

When you’re on the beach and it’s hot as hell, just look at the ice cube tray on this 100 percent cotton  towel to think about a cooler time and place — or to simply remember that you actually are cool — figuratively, that is.

Ace Hotel X Tokyo Bike

Atelier-Ace-X-Bike

Everybody needs a stylish bike to ride during their commutes, or to go through the country on your weekends away. This bike was made specially for Ace Hotel customers in London and Los Angeles, and it looks just as good riding it from your own home.

Pearl + Moisturizing Soap $8

This isn’t your father’s soap on a rope. Pearl + Moisturizing Soap is lovingly crafted by hand in Portland, Oregon by Studio J. and it actually contains crushed pearls, as well as organic ingredients like olive, coconut and palm oils, rice bran, shea butter, gotu kola, and rosemary extract, so you can get your skin silky smooth.

Atelier Ace X Beckel Dopp Kit $50

Atelier-Ace-X-Beckel-Dopp-Kit

Everybody needs a Dopp Kit. It’s the perfect bag for all your grooming goods when you’re on the move, and this one by Atelier Ace and Portland-based Beckel pays homage to their traditional production techniques in this canvas dopp kit.

All the new Audemars Piguet watches: A mini Royal Oak, a shaped watch, and more
Audemars Piguet releases several new watches for 2024
Audemars Piguet Mini Oak collection

Audemars Piguet, which has headquarters in Le Brassus, Switzerland, was founded in 1875 in Vallée de Joux by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. Just like its peers Rolex and Patek Philippe, the brand is known for superb craftsmanship and simply its name in general, with many people buying it as their first watch when they come into money.

Audemars Piguet is a brand known for some of the most expensive watches in the world, with the likes of Tom Brady, Ed Sheeran, and LeBron James sporting one. It has also become known for celebrity collaborations, including with John Mayer and Travis Scott's Cactus Jack. But a brand like this doesn't need celeb endorsements as they're already famous in their own right, with the Royal Oak showing up in the dreams of every watch collector and enthusiast around. Audemars Piguet has just come out with several new watch releases, each more dazzling than the next (quite literally.)

Protect your skin in style this summer with the best sun shirts of 2024
Better than sunscreen and chemical-free, these tops are purpose-built to fend off those "endless summer" rays.

When it comes to dressing for the summer heat, "less is more" seems to make the most sense. Less clothing means less trapped body heat, and that makes for a more comfortable you. For the most part, that works. But this equation doesn't account for protecting your skin against the sun's harmful UV rays.

For outdoorsy types – we’re talking the most adventurous kind, like trail runners, hikers, kayakers, mountain climbers, and so on – wearing less clothing while spending a significant amount of time in the sun can actually do more harm than good. Sure, sunscreen is a thing, and you should definitely keep using it. But that’s also where another problem arises: In order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, sunscreen — even the best natural, reef-safe sunscreen — needs to be slathered on regularly. And, if you’re spending more time outdoors than in, that gets expensive, too. That's where good sun-protective shirts (a.k.a. "sun shirts") come in.
