Last weekend, among the frenzy of tourists, athletes and fisherman, we found a fashion stylist, model and photographer at Crissy Field. Freelance photographer, Stephen Sun, was busy setting up the shoot, while ex-SF and now Sacramento-based hair and wardrobe stylist, Noelle Lynne, dressed JE Model, Keilina Jones in hot pink hot pants and a towering pair of Michael Antonio wedges.
There's no doubt the masses will flock to every park in the city this weekend for some get-it-while-you-can, quality sun basking. The usual suspects are, of course, the uber-hip fest at Dolores Park, BBQs at Crissy Field, or bike riding at Golden Gate. While those parks are always a-happenin', this Sunday, make the trek out to Stern Grove for the SF Symphony's free concert at the 74th Annual Stern Grove Festival.
We're big fans of functional fashion. Get some street action out of your swimwear this season with a maillot that doubles as a bodysuit.

We love these six swimsuits for their flattering, beach-flirty designs, but also for their urban wearability. Paired with high-waisted shorts or a long and lean skirt, you'll see that these suits go well beyond the beach.

We went to scope out the space on Thursday, and were lucky enough to catch up with Banana Republic's President (and Pac Heights resident) Jack Calhoun to inquire about why they decided to open Edition, as well as a few of his favorite things:
