Style + Design
Much to our dismay, there’s rarely news in the SF fashion scene that’s epic enough to garner international buzz, leaving us with baited breath for months of speculation. But such is the case with Levi’s, answering our sartorial prayers with their latest venture and the time has finally come to take a collective exhale and feast our eyes on the spring Levi’s by Opening Ceremony collection.
So you’ve been stuck late at the office all week (er, month) and frankly, it’s starting to show. Luckily, the lovely ladies at Lash Lab are here to provide some much needed support in the beauty department at their daily happy hour.
Last week was all about pairing up (and we’re frankly kinda over it). We like to think good things come in threes. Add that to the fact that we’re always on the hunt for notable finds from San Francisco designers, and you’ve got the inspiration for our latest post detailing what’s new from a trio of local labels:
We’re betting it was a very fine weekend for San Francisco native Patrik Ervell, who presented his fall menswear collection during New York Fashion Week on Saturday.
Not only did Vogue’s Anna Wintour arrive early to see his show, but she also gave the New York-based designer’s latest her verbal stamp of approval. Before Wintour made her exit, she found Ervell’s representatives and, “asked them to pass along the following message: ‘Tell Patrik I loved the collection,’” The Cut reports.
Sometimes, you've just got to deal...
Good Vibrations: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, all locations are offering wine and chocolate when you shop from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, as well as a $10 gift card when you spend $100.
Christopher Collins: Throughout February, markdowns at this Bay Area designer’s boutique range from up to 30 percent off fall coats to up to 50 percent off pants and tops.
As Ms. Klum has drilled into our well-coiffed heads season after season, 'In fashion, one day you're in and the next you're out.' Well, six recent Academy of Art grads have made the cut without having to turn garbage into couture (at least to our knowledge) and will be showing alongside the likes of Philip Lim, Diane Von Furstenberg and Project Runway's own Michael Kors at New York Fashion Week this Saturday.
Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to get all dolled up whether you're headed out for a night on the town or staying home for a more intimate evening.
When searching for an ensemble that's sure to get hearts racing, we steered clear of the clichéd reds and pinks associated with the sugar-coated holiday and instead opted for a romantic dress in the perfect shade of winter white. And to play up the sexy silhouette, we topped off the look with edgy accessories and the most adorable ring we've ever seen.
Now knock 'em dead.
If you’re still looking for fashionable ways tell him, “I love you,” we’ve got seven last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the special guys on your list:
