It's time to start marking those calendars for the inevitable hustle of shopping and fashion events over the next few months. This one should be first on your list: Erica Tanov will be showcasing her latest clothing and housewares collaboration with artist Lena Wolff at a pop up at Barrow Salon (256 Sutter Street, 4th Floor) on November 15 from 10am to 5pm. As you can see above, the pieces feature vibrant textiles and patterns inspired by prints from Wolff's eight-pointed star collage "Dahlia." The collection features block-printed textiles on blouses, dresses, hand-stitched quilts, pillows, and more.
The clothing and housewares collection is available at Erica Tanov stores in the Bay Area as well as at ABC Carpet & Home in New York (clothing only)—and if you happen to be in NYC in November, look for a popup at Michele Varian (27 Howard St) in Manhattan, which is ongoing for the entire month.
