An unexpected collaboration Ace Hotel x Twin Peaks; The former, a chain of hotels self-described “collection of individuals . . . held together by an affinity for the soulful” and the latter, a cult followed internationally acclaimed crime mystery drama.
Keep your eyes peeled and your fingers’ ready for a HISKIND favourite, the comeback of 90’s crime drama Twin Peaks. Following David Lynch’s [Twin Peaks co-creator] Festival of Disruption at the Los Angeles Ace Hotel, we’ve been blessed with a special taste of what’s to come and, of course, what to wear.
Two collections, one featuring limited-edition designs showcases a homage to David Lynch’s ultraviolet mind set to make eternal the Festival of Destruction. And the other, a more intimate Twin Peaks collaboration that hones in on the surrealism of “cabin in the woods mystery” emphasising woodland-lodge elements and the simplicity of clean, minimalistic designs. Available online, Ace Hotel will also be running a special Twin-Peaks centred auction for fans ready to indulge their curiosity here. Important to consider is that a portion of your purchase goes towards show creator David Lynch’s foundation for overcoming trauma, a cause that has helped some 500,000 survivors of violence and abuse.
Twin Peaks’ return, coincidentally timed just over 25 years later, boasts the return of a massive 217 member cast stars original fan favourites Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee and Peggy Lipton to name a few. While the show boasts new additions, including HISKIND favourite Sky Ferreira. Ferreira, an enigmatic embodiment of the black-lodge “who killed Laura Palmer” clandestine experience that is Twin Peaks, attended the Festival of Disruption to perform the Twin Peaks’ theme song [see below] and features on the Twin Peaks 2017 Mixtape.

Fashion, Ferreira and a 90s hit drama spell a recipe for success but it will be interesting to see how the show will be received by the millennial audience. While the return date is still to be decided, we are expecting an early 2017 drop with Ace Hotel’s collection set to run on a limited edition basis.
