One Killer Rack: Bianca Starr Debuts Stylist Boutique
Have you ever wanted to get your hands on a hot stylist’s rack (people, not like that). You’ll get your chance this Friday, when Bianca Starr unveils its first “stylist boutique,” a new in-store concept that’s sure to have local vintage fashion fans drooling.
“We have the hottest, most talented women in the city who have graced us with their fashion influence and asked them to pick out 20 to 30 of their favorite pieces that they can part with to be out on consignment,” store owner Bianca Kaplan blogged recently.
First up are San Francisco stylists Shauna McCann and Hannah Sitzer, who can often be found producing window and interior retail displays for companies such as Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic and Apple through her company Antlre Creative. Come April, stylist Jasmine Hamed will be featured, and a new stylist will take over each month thereafter.
Items culled from Sitzer and McCann’s personal collections of apparel and accessories will be on display and available for purchase throughout the month of March at the Mission neighborhood destination for high-end vintage day and evening wear. Adding an artistic component to the show of style will be a Sitzer-designed display occupying the store’s front window.
So what will you find later this week swinging from enviable stylists’ rack? Kaplan tells us that a pair of high-waisted, brocade trousers by Prada, a selection of vintage leather belts and a cream-colored ribbed bodysuit with a down-to-there neckline from Jeanne Marc are among the many treasures.
The first stylist boutique runs from March 5-April 1 at Bianca Starr, 3552 20th St., 415-341-1020, www.biancastarr.com. An opening party with DJs and bubbly takes place Friday from 6-9 p.m.
