In keeping up with SF’s retail shuffle, we’ve been curious to see the mysteries of 120 Maiden Lane unfold. Less than seven months ago, Helmut Lang opened its doors on downtown’s tony shopping alley. Today, the minimalist boutique has newly hung banners and signs reading Theory (check out the picture we snapped yesterday).
LA-based streetwear company The Hundreds has quite the following (see photos taken from the store’s opening day in the TenderNob yesterday, by yours truly). From 10 a.m. until early evening, a long line could be spotted down the block — crowds of sneaker heads dressed in Huf hats and Nike Air Jordan’s — waiting to enter the shop that managed to stir up an air of mystery with its black paper-covered windows and its steel doors guarded by employees.
The Vintage Fashion Expo is a treasure trove for clotheshorses and fashion devotees, but for someone who is easily distracted, like me, it can be overwhelming (in a good way). This weekend, the Nob Hill Masonic Center was transformed into a vintage lover’s dream: 85 clothing and accessories dealers ready to outfit you in all sorts of goodies.

The coming change in seasons brings a welcome shift in fashion: fresh prints, lighter weight fabrics and new silhouettes. But before breaking the bank on your floral-enhanced spring wardrobe, visit some of our favorite San Francisco shops where we’ve scoped out last-minute fall and resort buys at unreasonably low prices.
