Weekend in NoMad: Lockwood Umbrellas Pop-Up Shop
This weekend, Ace Hotel will host a Lockwood Umbrellas Pop-Up Shop in their lobby. Lockwood Umbrellas is a small London-based manufacturer that specializes in stylish, hand-crafted designer umbrellas. Lockwood built a relationship with the Ace Hotel when the hotel franchise started using Lockwood umbrellas in their London location. The temporary shop is part of New York Fashion Week 2014, which officially kicked off yesterday with the Nicholas K runway show.
The pop-up shop is open today from noon to 6 p.m. as well as Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. If you’re interested in how the Lockwood team hand makes its umbrellas, be sure to catch the public talk at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Also, if you’re looking for some entertainment, stick around tonight after the pop-up shop closes for a Michael Cavadias DJ set at 8 p.m. in the Ace Hotel Lobby Bar. Cavadias has held a number of residencies throughout the city, in addition to DJing parties for Rufus Wainwright, Alan Cumming and Boy George.
Swing by the NoMad District this weekend to grab a super umbrella or simply enjoy drinks and music.
