Street Style Report: Tomboy Chic in Japantown

Photos by Lily Ko

Last weekend, we spotted Swiss exchange student Anina Gantenbein, shopping in Japantown. 

We love Anina's on-trend camo jacket and complex layers. At first, her look is straight up androgynous, but then you notice a cute collar, a lace-print cardigan and pink socks, adding cute, feminine touches to her overall look. 

What she wore: Clothing from Buffalo Exchange, and various boutiques in Switzerland; Sandqvist Switzerland backpack; Vans shoes.

Anina currently resides in Portland, where she studies photography. 

Seven questions for Anina:

1. What's been your favorite part of San Francisco?

Thrift shopping in the Mission.

2. Which San Francisco hood has the best food?

Japantown.

3. What's on your holiday wish list?

A Hasselblad camera. 

4. What are you giving for this holiday?

I got a sewing book for my mom from Kinokuniya. 

5. Where's one place everyone should visit in Switzerland?

Langstrasse in Zurich. It's a busy street with a lot of clubs and stuff. 

6. Where's one place everyone should visit in Portland?
