Despite the overcast skies and cooler temps, Sunday’s Union Design festival (formerly Capsule) in Hayes Valley was just as much the outpouring of fashion and design talent as always. Over 130 designers touted apparel and accessories ranging from pretty organic cotton dresses and silkscreened baby tees to steampunk-inspired regalia and handmade hats. Here, seven stylish finds from our fashion foraging:
1. Biker chic from a local source: we’re revved up about leather jackets for men and women made by Heathen, a label based in the Mission District.
2. Bamboo we’d definitely do: geometric shapes pair up with hand-painted details in these bamboo earrings from The Harbinger Co.
5. Getting the message: a rugged way to reduce, reuse and recycle comes courtesy of RossCo’s messenger bags made from old billboards, sails and climbing harnesses.
