archives.

Over the past few years Ace & Tate collaborated with many companies and brands over the whole world to create some magic. Some of them are worth mentioning in the Ace & Tate 'Hall of Fame' – a.k.a. Ace & Tate archives. Cheers!

Ace & Tate + Lernert & Sander frame collaboration

We teamed up with our long-time friends, the brilliant artists and filmmakers Lernert & Sander. Amsterdam's creative duo consistently bring much needed wit and playfulness into the serious world of fashion - a perfect match for Ace & Tate. This time round, they were intrigued by the idea that sunglasses cover our facial expressions, and designed two distinct, cartoon-like frames with a mind of their own: the Lernert & the Sander.

Ace & Tate + Anthony Burrill store artwork

In collaboration with UK-based graphic designer Anthony Burrill, we produced a series of statement prints which encourage people to switch-off and live in the now!

Not only the messages in the prints Burrill has created for us, but the printing technique itself - a slow, and mindful process - reflects a pre-digital, offline state of mind.

Limited edition frame with special orange tinted lenses to celebrate the Hollands first Kings Day. It is considered that Dutch growers developed the orange carrot by selective breeding, and then it was adopted as the Royal vegetable in honour of the House of Orange.
