Bacca da Silva
This Week in Fashion: Weekend Sales at Cary.Lane and Jeremy's, The Collection + SF Fashion Awards Poolside Show
Stop by Cary.Lane's Hayes Valley subterranean digs, and enjoy an extra 30% off the entire store -- that's mens and women's, head to toe. Over in South Park, the Jeremy's sale features an additional 30% off all previously marked down women's apparel. We're eyeing some soft metallics by Marni (pants reduced to $97), and Jil Sander (dress reduced to $63).
For his latest collection of men’s and women’s apparel, San Francisco designer Bacca Da Silva inches away from the intricately-beaded, handmade pieces long associated with his label to embrace styles with simpler construction and more versatile silhouettes.
“For the spring summer 2010, we are making pieces that are a little less elaborated, less hand work,” says Da Silva, whose most complicated custom designs featuring hand-embroidered details can take up to three months to complete.
Da Silva’s aesthetic may be more streamlined than in collections past, but don’t expect the looks hanging from the racks in the Brazilian-born designer’s Sutter Street showroom starting this month to be any less bold.
If you’re anything like us, you’re looking at the limp economy as a glass half full instead of one that’s half empty. It just means fewer shoppers to compete with over a greater number of post-Thanksgiving day sales, no? If your inner shopping optimist draws you to downtown to sniff out the Black Friday deals, we also recommend checking out a few new shops that have recently opened in this ever-changing shopping district.
