About

Extremely rare and collectible Peter Golding denim dress from the ACE store on London's King's Road Chelsea in 1974. The dress features, western style fringed pockets, hand sewn patchwork jungle themed imagery all over and embroidered 'ACE JUNGLE JEANS' on the belt and the word 'Ace' on the back.

In 1974, Golding opened his flagship store, ACE, in London's King's Road, with sculptures by Andrew Logan and an interior described by European Fashion Guide as "glittering":

This may be the "hottest" store in the world. There is nothing inside here that does not glitter: the jeans, the shirts, the walls and the people. The black walls shine under silver lights, music plays continuously, and there’s no telling what stars may pop in – Liza Minnelli, Rod Stewart, Bianca Jagger or the Rolling Stones’...models,rock stars,movie people and lords and princesses come here for clothes that Golding designs to be both fun and sexy.Famous are the Golding jeans which fit like a second skin..

Alan Flusser – European Fashion Guide US 1977)
