The SF Summer Scarf Marks Distilled's Move into Women's Wear
When we were lucky enough to get our hot little hands on the brand new San Francisco Summer Scarf from local label Distilled last week, smug triumph ensued almost as soon as we wrapped up in the lightweight, casually-crinkled cotton number.
That’s because this scarf is much more than a simple neck-wrapper for the City’s chilly summer months. The first unisex (officially speaking) piece from designers Matty Merrill and Sep Kamvar, the scarf is a welcome harbinger of more female-friendly fashion to come.
“We constantly get asked when we’re going to come out with ladies’,” says Merrill.
Luckily for female fans of the geek-chic style that’s made Distilled a hit, the label is currently developing a women’s fall capsule collection that Merrill assures us is a “collaboration with somebody big,” though he’s not ready to name names just yet.
While we wait impatiently for the big reveal in a few months, we’re heartened to know that additional unisex pieces such as a t-shirt and blazer will follow in the summer scarf’s footsteps.
After all, we can appreciate guys who take things slow.
For now, hunt down the Distilled San Francisco Summer Scarf ($30) in person at Hayes Valley shop Nomads, check it out in the Distilled online store, keep up with the company via its blog or become a fan on Facebook.
