Street Style Report
Last weekend, we spotted skater/surfer boy, Ivan Cheng, chilling near Union Square. Originally from Osaka, Japan, Ivan now calls Treasure Island home, and commutes into SF to skate at EMB (The historic Embarcadero skate turf) and for MFA photography classes at Academy of Art University. His look is a subtle blend of clean, fitted Japanese and modern skater street style.
Some would say the epitome of SF street style would be great bike fashion, found at a hip, local company in the Mission. Timbuk2's Jared Fickel (left) and Lizzy Fallows (right) certainly fit the SF style profile. We caught up with the savvy city cyclists at Timbuk2's swanky Mission HQ, for a little tour and to talk bikes and fashion.
Last weekend, Macy's Glamorama stormed the Orpheum Theatre (and later the Asian Art Museum), bringing together SF's fashion elite, philanthropists, and teenyboppers swooning over headliner, Robin Thicke.
We went, we saw and we photographed these amazing looks from Macy's Fashion Incubator designers, a local b-boy, and more.
With a sprawling, must-see interior, fantastic wine and food pairings, and such chic employees, it's no question -- Ram's Gate has some serious swagger.
Upon a recent visit to the Sonoma winery, we spotted employees Marc Hartenfels (left) and Sonia Tarbox (right), in stylish yet laid-back looks that were perfect for wine country.
The super adorable beanie-clad gal above would be Lindsey Hanka, the shop manager of Steven Alan on Fillmore St.
Born in SF and raised in NoPa, Lindsey went to school in Chicago and fell in love in Minneapolis before returning to our fine city by the Bay (with her hubby) three years ago. She now calls the TenderNob home, happily wears Steven Alan daily, and roams the city in flats.
We asked one of our favorite Barneys sales/style gurus, Alan "Al Bizzy" Maramag, to show us a little preview of what he'll be rocking this fall.
We spotted friends, Afton Love (left) and Anna Lee Kerlin (right), with adorable smiles, lovely layers and eye-catching prints. Afton (wicked cool name!), lives in the hip Temescal district of Oakland, and works in SF, as the manager of the luxe Fillmore Street boutique, Erica Tanov. Anna Lee lives in Daly City and uses fashion as a means of self expression. "I change my clothes sometimes 20 times a day," said Anna Lee. "I don't even explain it to people anymore."
Last weekend, we spotted newlyweds, Fidel Lirio (left) and Stephen Candelino (right), dressed down (but still looking fab) after directing a photo shoot on Fillmore St. Fidel works as a creative director for Dockers, and Stephen is a wardrobe stylist who works with Levi's, Gap, Uniqlo and Ralph Lauren.
The dapper duo got married last June in NYC, with a small and slightly impromptu ceremony in the lobby of the Bowery Hotel. "We wanted to get married -- not have a wedding," said Fidel. "We celebrated our relationship on our terms, in the very spot (exact sofa to boot!) where we shared our first cocktail."
With a constant flow of posh tourists and art-savvy locals, SFMOMA is always a hot spot for great fashion in San Francisco. Last weekend, while checking out the new, kitschy-cool Cindy Sherman exhibit, local girl, Kristin Evans caught our eye. Kristin's job is as hardcore as her sense of style -- she works as a probation officer in Sacramento, and plays in SF on the weekends.
