Ok ladies… meet the Aerie way to do a power suit! And yes, it’s true.…

Want to feel like you’re in Morocco without leaving the US? Do it the Aerie way and head to southern California! This season, our design team traveled to Morocco to get inspired for our newest collection. When it was time to bring the collection to life in a photoshoot, we figured out a way to get some of that same Moroccan inspiration… on a REAL budget. Find out what to see, where to stay and what to eat from Aerie Creative Director, Summer.

What to see

Sand dunes

An accessible world wonder, just under 2 hours from Palm Springs in Brawley, CA. It’s an easy day trip and you get real Moroccan desert vibes, like Erg Chebbi or Merzouga, without ever leaving the US.

Tips:

  • Watch out for ATVs! Wear bright colors to stand out… neon Desert Sweatshirt if you have it!
  • Bring and drink lots and lots of water. It’s hot out there.
  • Watch out for snakes! Rattlesnakes and sidewinders are known to be in the area. We also learned on our trip to look out for the scariest snake of all… the fake snake. If you want to spice up your trip and scare your friends, throw one in your bag (or theirs)!

CAMELS!

You too can meet the realest camel out there, Nadia! She lived in the wilds of Arizona until this year. Today, she’s a 9-year-old lady living her best life on a 10-acre farm with 4 camel friends.

Where to stay

The Joshua Tree House

This dreamy Joshua Tree spot has Moroccan-inspired decor, the most amazing rugs and lots and lots of cacti. We did one day of our photoshoot at the Hacienda, which has select dates available overnight trips. If not, you can stay at The House or The Casita for your own Moroccan adventure.

Tips:

  • BEWARE OF PRICKS! By the end of the day, we were all full of cactus needles. Some of us still have the scars to prove it.

Sands Hotel & Spa

The Sands is a Moroccan dream come true, with architecture and design that feels like a riad, a traditional Moroccan house with a garden or courtyard in the middle. If a vacation at the pool and spa is your thing (and why wouldn’t it be?!), this is the place for you.

The Pink Cabana

Location, location, location! The Pink Cabana is connected to the Sands, so you can do Morocco without ever leaving the comfort of your hotel.

A full day of eating Moroccan style looks like:

  • Breakfast: Tumeric and honey granola or a Moroccan pancake (baghrir)
  • Lunch: Cabana meze or Naan tartine.
  • Dinner: Harissa chicken with a Moroccan mint iced tea on the side.

The Purple Palm

This famous spot may not have traditional Moroccan food, but the design is Morocco all the way—check out those tiles!

Each season, our design team dreams up a theme and designs an entire collection around it. They set their sights on Morocco this season, and traveled there to experience the vibrant country. Go behind the scenes with Senior Vice President of Design, Andrea, and Senior Designer, Jackie, to find your own inspiration from this magical country.

Shopping at the souks of Marrakech.

How did the culture and spirit of the country inspire you?

The Moroccan culture is so rich in inspiration, history and tradition. The people are so kind and simple but very artistic.

The spirit of Morocco is filled with amazing energy that circulates through the souks, restaurants, and museums.

The hustle and bustle of everyday life against a backdrop of handmade rugs and textiles draped along the walls of the city. Through the doors into our riad it was like walking into an oasis. The sounds of the city feel so far away but they are alive on the other side of the walls. After a day of eating up all the amazing color, pattern, and artistry it was an amazing transition to the purity and peace we found in the riad. We tried to bring this feeling back with us and re-create this feeling for our customer. 

From left to right: El Fenn Hotel, Majorelle Garden and Riad de Tarabel in Marrakech.
Senior Designer, Jackie, shopping for new blues.

Tell us about the design process.  How did you take Moroccan inspiration and put an Aerie spin on our newest styles?

At the start of each season the team brainstorms what we want the theme for the season to be. After our brainstorm for the season we decided Morocco would be an amazing place to draw inspiration from. We applied what we saw to our color palettes, print and pattern and apparel items. Color combinations were created from the array of shoes on the wall and pattern was inspired by all the amazing textiles we saw. We are loving our easy Nomad pants this season – a traditional Moroccan silhouette with an Aerie spin and drapey knit fabric. 

The colors of the souks.

What was your biggest takeaway from visiting Morocco?

We are so lucky that we have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in cultures and bring that inspiration back to our girl.

Morocco is so amazing because of the beautiful people and peaceful culture. There is so much of Moroccan culture that we also value as part of our brand.

What was your favorite spot that you would go back to again if you had the chance?

Take us back to the tents in the desert surrounded by the amazing food! Drop us in the souks and let’s get lost!

Senior Vice President of Design, Andrea, with a new friend.

What’s something you wish you would have known before you trip?

Nothing! Less is more when you are exploring a new place. It’s so important to have an open mind and allow yourself to just explore and discover!

This season, we’re inspired by all the colors & sights of Morocco. Today, try a DIY for your house or apartment decor with a planter made from colorful tiles like the ones we saw in Morocco.

What you need

  • 5 tiles
  • Gorilla glue
  • Painters tape

What to do

  1. Hold one tile on its side and line an edge with glue.
  2. Attach a second tile on its side to the sticky side, making an “L” shape.
  3. Place two pieces of painters tape on the outer corner of the “L” to hold the two tiles together.
  4. Continue steps 2 and 3 until 4 tiles are glued and taped together into a cube shape.
  5. On the bottom of the cube, line all four tiles with glue.
  6. Place the 5th and final tile on the bottom, wet part of the tiles, and tape it to hold.
  7. Wait until the glue dries, then remove the tape.
  8. Add dirt and a plant!

This season, we partnered with Artist and Writer, Morgan Harper Nichols, to bring #AerieREAL to life! This SoCal-based artist has been creating some of the amazing graphics you can see featured in stores and on our Instagram. Find out what inspires Morgan, how she balances work with life as a new mom, and her advice for anyone wanting to share their creative work with the world.

Real Talk with Morgan Harper Nichols

Tell us about yourself! 

My name is Morgan Harper Nichols and I am an artist and writer. I’m passionate about making art that is inspired by real stories that people share with me. I spend my days working from home as a freelancer and author. I live in Southern California with my husband and my son just came into the world this past May! 

We love your designs! What is your biggest source of inspiration?  

Thank you so much! My biggest source of inspiration has always been the people and stories I have encountered in real life. I have always been curious about the way other people live and how they see the world. In 2017, I invited my Instagram followers to share their stories with me via DM and I began writing for their stories one by one. This has become a huge part of my creative process and I am honored and grateful that people from around the world would take the time to share their stories with me. It’s been incredible to see how even though all of our stories are so different, beneath the layers, so many of us have experienced the same thought and emotions.  

I am also inspired by nature and use many nature metaphors in my work. Of all the things that make us different, I believe that nature is also something that connects us. 

Real Talk with Morgan Harper Nichols

You’re a new mom—congrats! What have you learned so far? What’s your advice for balancing work & mom life? 

Yes! I became a mom in May and it has been such a wonderful and life altering experience. One of the biggest things I am learning is how to be okay with needing extra time to do things. Before having a baby, I had a tendency to overwork because I was so set on getting things done. I am learning to have a lot more grace for myself when I need to take things slower. And the amazing thing is, even when I have to take more time, surprisingly, everything is fine!  

What advice would you give someone who wants to share their art, but is scared to go for it?  

It’s okay to start small. It took me a long time before I shared my work on a popular platform like Instagram because there was so much going on there and it was intimidating. I starting sharing on smaller platforms as a way to get into a rhythm of just making things, and also, as a way to express myself without worrying about followers, likes, etc. I think the best way to go for it is to create a space where you feel free to just share without worrying about the outcome.

We came, we flowed, and we celebrated the first day of summer the best way we know. If you couldn’t be with us in NYC this past June, check out all the fun from Solstice right here, including a full hour-long yoga class with Catherine Gignac, and a music, meditation & movement session with Tiff McFierce.

This summer marked our 3rd year sponsoring Solstice, and Certified Yoga Teacher & Aerie Senior Manager of Digital Creative, Catherine Gignac, was back for her 3rd year to teach.

How has your class changed in your 3 years of teaching at Solstice?

Catherine: My class has changed so much since my first year at Solstice! This year was definitely the best one yet and that’s because I feel very sure of myself and my identity as a yoga instructor in a much deeper capacity. So many things have changed for me in such a great way and I’ve had the opportunity in the last year to really explore how I love to practice on my own mat and I bring that — and nothing else — into my teaching now. My class is always about moving stuck energy around, so I incorporate a lot of one-breath-per-movement repetitive flows to really get things sweaty and turned up. It also helps that after a third time on stage in Times Square I feel comfortable and I can really just let all the gratitude, love and appreciation I feel for this experience pour out.

What is your goal for your class—how do you want people to feel when they leave?

Catherine: My goal when I teach in Times Square is to make sure that everyone feels like they connect with someone even though there are so many people around. We link arms and hold each other up in this class because so many people think they’re alone in their insecurities and they’re not! It’s important for me to inspire people to love themselves, band together, make room for each other, and talk more about our vulnerabilities in public.

What are your tips for feeling more connected—to our bodies, to ourselves, and to the world around us?

Catherine: I’m not a huge journaler, but I’ve come to really love two different exercises that help me reground to my center when I feel like I’m spiraling and disconnected. The first is to make a list as long as I possibly can with all “I am” statements. The catch: they all have to be positive. “I am strong. I am confident. I am full of contradictions.” and so on. The second is one of my favorites that coach Jackie Carr introduced me to in one of her workshops. You draw a circle on a piece of paper and in it you write everything you want in your life and outside of it you write everything you don’t. Simply visualizing what I need versus what I don’t is so powerful for me to let go of what’s making me feel disconnected. If that doesn’t help, crank up some fast music and do 3 minutes of jumping jacks to the beat without stopping. That’ll work, promise.

Any time you want an #AerieREAL Empowered Flow, take Catherine’s class for an hour of heart pumping, soul healing, deeply soothing AND intensely challenging goodness. For more yoga from Catherine, go on the Aerie-ized mini version of her retreat in Tulum this past spring!

Tiff McFierce is a DJ & the founder of Look IN vs. Lookin’, a self-care series that combines music, meditation & movement.

What role does music play in your life? 

Tiff: Music is like my heartbeat—I’ve known its sound since birth honestly and it plays a huge role in my life as not just my job, but my language. It’s how I ground myself, how I express myself with others and how I celebrate. It is in every part of me. 

We normally think of meditation as something done in complete silence. How did you start doing it differently, and how has it changed you?

Tiff: I’ve always done everything differently since I was a young girl, and I remember feeling and hearing things very differently since about 5th grade. For me, my meditation has always been movement, being a professional dancer and dancing since I could literally walk, and music is the one thing I cannot live without, so it made sense as I became even more aware and ascended into different parts of my inner work and healing to just do me as usual. We as humans stop ourselves because we believe in doing things a certain way when life and self-care aren’t linear by any means, so we must listen and see what works for us. That is the whole premise of my wellness brand, Look IN vs Lookin’—meditation, wellness is YOUR personal journey to paint how you want and need to! Sound vibration is something I’ve studied throughout my career and with what I’ve learned, it’s only right for me to share it with others through my work and Look IN vs Lookin’ since it’s changed me. 

Can you share more tips for dealing with stress?

Tiff: There’s nothing like getting in touch with your breath right away when you’re stressed. Usually when we are stressed we aren’t fully breathing, we are panting or shallow breathing and feeding the stress. Slowing down, putting both feet to MUVA, (that’s what I call Mother Earth), and reminding yourself that you are fully protected in this very moment and all that exists IS THIS very moment helps a bunch. Doing something you love even for just 5-15 minutes minimum every single day is a stress reliever as well. Again, stillness is your own so your meditation can be talking with a grounded friend, writing, reading, running or just putting on a favorite song and swaying. 

Got 10 minutes? Use it for some well-deserved YOU time with Tiff’s music, meditation & movement session.

Until next Solstice, return to Catherine and Tiff’s sessions any time you want a little extra self-care.
