Theory Lands on Maiden Lane

In keeping up with SF’s retail shuffle, we’ve been curious to see the mysteries of 120 Maiden Lane unfold. Less than seven months ago, Helmut Lang opened its doors on downtown’s tony shopping alley. Today, the minimalist boutique has newly hung banners and signs reading Theory (check out the picture we snapped yesterday).


Brilliant Earth Jewelry

Thanks to our annual green issue (just hitting news stands), we happily came across several worthy fashion and beauty brands that are doing their part to keep consumers–and the earth–beautiful. One SF company that’s gaining national exposure for taking a bold eco-conscious leap in the realm of jewelry is Brilliant Earth, which uses renewed or recycled platinum and gold, and sources its conflict-free diamonds from Canadian mines.
