Earlier this year, Frame partnered up with the Carlyle on a special loungewear collection, because honestly, hotel merch was the closest anyone was getting to a relaxing getaway or luxurious staycation at the time. Now, the cool girl brand is teaming up with the iconic Upper East Side hotel once again, on a second capsule collection inspired by New York City.
While the initial über-popular drop was comprised of just two crewneck sweatshirts and a baseball hat, the new collection offers additional styles and colorways. The latest Frame x Carlyle Hotel collab is composed of comfy and stylish loungewear pieces, including hoodies, sweatpants, hats, shorts, sweatshirts and tees in blue, white, yellow and green. The pieces are embroidered with either the Carlyle’s name and crest or emblazoned with the Bemelmans Bar logo, so you can always feel like you’re sipping a martini at the hotel’s famed piano bar.
The collection, which starts at $98, celebrates the relaxed, effortlessly sophisticated vibe of New York City in the late 1970s, and the partnership makes so much sense. After all, there are few institutions quite as quintessentially New York as the timeless Carlyle, which has been a favorite of Manhattan locals and visitors alike (including famous faces like George Clooney, John F. Kennedy and frequent guest Princess Diana, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) ever since it first opened its doors in 1930.
“The response to the first iteration of our collaboration was so overwhelmingly positive, a second collection was a natural progression,” Erik Torstensson, Frame’s co-founder and creative director, told Observer. “After a year of isolation and immobility, people craved that sense of adventure, travel and exploration. I am continually amazed by the transporting powers of fashion—how something as simple as a sweatshirt or hat can give you a renewed sense of excitement. We hope to see people wearing the collection at the Carlyle, around New York City and all over the world.”
