Kit and Ace Upgrades the Travel Experience with Hotel Pop-up Series

Luxury hotels worldwide will host “The Carry-on” featuring Canadian retailer’s signature travel-friendly apparel

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--()--Canadian retailer Kit and Ace has announced a series of pop-up shops in collaboration with luxury hotels in major cities across the globe. The pop-up series, known as “The Carry-on”, will take place this April, and offer guests – and locals – the opportunity to shop a selection of Kit and Ace pieces from the convenience of their hotel. The initiative will also live online – digital visitors can access travel-friendly resources, including itineraries of places to visit in each city curated by local influencers, and wardrobe essentials.

Kit and Ace has established itself as a go-to brand for those seeking clothing suited to busy lives. The brand’s technical apparel is made from proprietary fabrics that are wrinkle-resistant and temperature-regulating, perfect for long flights, and feature added stretch to hold shape and recover – even when held in one position for a while.

“The Carry-on pop-up concept was developed knowing that travellers discover cities online well before checking into their hotel,” said JJ Wilson, Co-founder and Head of Brand at Kit and Ace. “We wanted to create a multi-platform experience that offered the same content online and offline where people could shop travel essentials and explore cities around the world at the same time.”

The Carry-on will take place in succession next month in the following locations:

San Francisco – Hotel Zetta (April 1-3)

London – Mondrian London (April 13-20)

Los Angeles – Palihouse West Hollywood (April 8-13)

Sydney – The Old Clare Hotel (April 20-26)

Melbourne – Art Series, The Olsen (April 11-17)

New York – Refinery Hotel (April 28-May 30)


“Kit and Ace clothing is designed for people who are on the go – and who better fits that description than hotel guests?” explained Shannon Wilson, Co-founder and President at Kit and Ace. “Pants like our Rhodes Trousers are made of wrinkle-resistant Ontace™ fabric, so you can curl up on the plane and watch a movie, and still arrive looking polished for a dinner meeting or drinks with friends.”

Time is precious – The Carry-on pop-ups offer the easy-pack essentials for days and weekends that carry on. Discover The Carry-on at
