Photos: H&M San Francisco Debuts Maison Martin Margiela

On November 13, the city's fashion-forward fans converged at H&M in Union Square for a private, invite-only shopping event that provided first access to the new exclusive collection from French designers Maison Martin Margiela.

Guests enjoyed gorgeous bites from Taste Catering; refreshing beverages including an inventive White Cosmo wine/vodka cocktail; and a fun soundscape from DJ Tender Buttons—all while exploring the MMM collection offered in a specially-designated area, and receiving a 25% discount off of everything else in the store.

According to H&M's website:

SF Street Style: A Modern Ad Man Shows Us Four Spring Looks, in The Mission

Meet Gabriel (Gabe) Johnson, born in Spanish Harlem, raised in Boston and, as of six years ago, a proud resident of San Francisco.

Gabe works as an adman, writing slick copy for the local boutique agency, Engine Company 1. When he's not busy getting wordy, he's involved in the local art and music scenes or in the kitchen, cookin' up something tasty.

Gabe kind of does it all, and he looks damn good while doing it. From nautical stripes to frayed-edge shorts, check out what he's wearing this spring.

SF Street Style: One Guy, Three Looks, Bernal Heights

I met photographer Abraham (Abe) Espiritu a few years back, and have always dug how he pieces modern and vintage clothing to present personal, yet on-trend looks. Last weekend, I asked him to pull together a few rain-and-shine spring looks for a little photoshoot in his hood, Bernal Heights. The end result included a fantastic mix of rain boots, black-on-black, white pants, sockless oxfords, a cool chambray, and fiery vintage prints. Check it out.

SF Street Style: Balenciaga, H&M and Custom Jewelry at Union Square

H&M visual merchandiser, Mark Jssn, was analyzing the (super sold out) Marni for H&M window displays when we stopped him on Powell St.  Mark moved up to SF five years ago, from San Jose, and says he loves the city for, "the diversity of people and because SF is so laid back." And we love Mark's look for the nicely mixed (loose/tight) proportions and (high/low) brands.

SF Street Style: A Fashion Shoot at Crissy Field

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 ModelKeilina Jones in hot pink hot pants and a towering pair of Michael Antonio wedges.

SF Street Style: ...at the de Young

Last weekend, we caught up with Atlanta-based Latvian fashion blogger, Karina De Jesus, while on a weekend trip in SF. Karina was taking in the stunning 360-degree view of SF at the de Young tower when we stopped her for a few photos and her take on San Francisco.

SF Street Style: Dark Autumn Palate in the Castro

While wandering the Castro, I spotted Jay L. Malvar in a perfectly transitional fall outfit. I love the deep autumn palate, offset by the gold rose pin and how his leather jacket was hung gently over his shoulders.

SF Street Style: The Man in The Red Bow-Tie, in The Mission

I caught up with visual designer Shawn Carrico, while standing in line at the SF Street Food Festival, last Saturday in the Mission. His red bow-tie and wicked-sharp glasses immediately caught my attention but, while he's incorporated great details, his outfit is still refreshingly casual -- and thus, street food appropriate. Shawn said his favorite eats at the festival were the Penang Curry Bomb Bun and Sharbat from Azalina's

SF Street Style: European Family Style at Off The Grid

There were so many great casual looks at Off The Grid Ft. Mason, that it was hard to shoot just one person. In fact, I ended up finding a very stylish Madrid-turned-SF trio:  Silvia, a Language Specialist at eBay, looking cute in her blue and yellow; little Leah, 18-months-old, with fantastic hair; Markus, head of SEO at Yahoo!, talk about a swoony dad.
