Link Love: RIP Daul Kim, VS Lingerie Cirque du Soleil and Fashion IMBD

Juicy bits to start your weekend …

The Cut reported that twenty-year-old model, photographer and artist Daul Kim was found dead in her Paris apartment on Thursday. We’ll miss her enigmatic character and unique look.

It was like a Cirque du Soleil of lingerie. Fashionista captured the Victoria’s Secret runway show on video.

What’s the Deal: John Varvatos, Martha Davis, Artillery and more…

Outside, it may be cold and dreary. But these weekend deals are bright and cheery...

John Varvatos: The fall-winter collection is 40 percent off through Tuesday. Visit the San Francisco store in Union Square or use online code F09PRS.

Look of the Week: Hip Hop Haze

With HipHop DanceFest bringing some of the most cutting-edge dance troupes in the world together this weekend in SF, it's safe to say that anyone remotely interested in dance (or dancers for that matter) should definitely be there. Even fashionistas whose dance experience is limited to watching Lady Gaga videos and Dancing with the Stars are sure to find fresh inspiration in the hip hop styles that will brighten the stage and crowds alike, which brings us to this week's look:

1. Adidas Deadstock 1988 Olympic Sapporo 72 Sweatshirt, $100: We're loving the vibrant hues and snow-capped details on this vintage find.

Potrero Hill’s Newest Boutique: Collage Clothing opens

Just the thought of constant change in life might be daunting to some, but not to Collage Gallery owner Delisa Sage. In fact, the new Collage clothing boutique she opened next door to the Potrero Hill home décor and art gallery she’s owned for the last 18 years hinges on that very idea.

“The whole concept of the store is to have it change constantly,” says Sage, whose shop highlights the notion with a window mannequin donning a different look each day.

Cozy Up with Souchi at Metier

After packing up her knitting needles and leaving San Francisco for Portland some years back, Suzi Johnson is headed back to our fair city this weekend to show off her latest wares. Debuting her entire fall collection, which includes gorgeous hand-loomed sweaters, winter accessories, blankets, baby items as well as one-of-a-kind pieces, Suzi will be on hand at Metier from 12-5 to talk knits and help you find deliciously soft gifts for everyone on your list. She'll even take orders for custom sweaters if you can't find the size or hue you're looking for. Just don't be surprised if you never want to wear anything else again.

Thread Show: 7 Reasons to Go

You certainly don't need a reason to go to Thread this weekend. But we'll give you seven:

Seeing Spring: gr.dano Spring 2010 Collection

Come spring, gr.dano wants to let you down easy – or, at least, soften the landing as we emerge from winter months – courtesy of a spring 2010 collection punctuated with uncharacteristically loose, flowing pieces in crinkled parachute-like fabric alongside the structured shapes and neutral hues the San Francisco-based label from Brian Scheyer and Jill Giordano has become known for.

In creating their latest and fifth collection, Scheyer and Giordano found inspiration in the works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, whose wrapped buildings and installations such as The Gates in New York City incorporate flowing fabrics in the most unexpected of ways.

Link Love: Joy Bianchi's Couture, Changes on Maiden Lane and more...

SF Luxe revels in Joy Bianchi’s private collection of vintage couture.

Adding to the spate of recent retail changes in Union Square, we hear Yves Saint Laurent will likely close on Maiden Lane.

There’s something incredibly creepy about jewelry made from human teeth.

Jewelry that’s much more appealing can be found in SF Indie Fashion’s coverage of Jessica Winzelberg’s debut collection.

Link Love: Alien Shoes, Sesame Street and Prime Cleavage

Juicy bits to start your weekend …

High fashion or new weapon? Apparently alien shoes are in. Grazia reports that Alexander McQueen’s offices are flooded with calls from women who want these shoes. Yikes.

Uniqlo and Disney. Marc Jacobs and Miss Piggy. Stella and Bambi. What’s next in kiddie-inspired looks? Sesame Street gets destroyed by American Apparel. BlackBook reports.
