Sidewalk Chic: Polished Flair in SoMa
Name: Kelvin Malone
Occupation: Creative Consultant
Spotted: William Kentridge opening at SFMOMA, 8:38 p.m.
Wearing: Lanvin coat and shirt, silk pajama jacket from Bergdorf Goodman, made-to-measure trousers, Hermès shoes, vintage hat, Dries Van Noten scarf, Jas M.B. bag
What do you consider to be the best fashion secret in SF? “A good tailor. I go to Al’s Attire in North Beach to get trousers made.”
If you could only wear one designer for the rest of your life, who would it be? “Lanvin is my drug of choice at the moment.”
Where do you find style inspiration? Fred Astaire and Prince are the men. Audrey Hepburn and Italian Vogue’s Anna Piaggi are the women.
Why we love his look: Malone’s inventive high-end look is spirited and sophisticated.
