union square shopping
Earlier this week, Metier announced that, after 21 solid years in Union Square, they will be closing on Saturday, July 21. They were a local refuge, and go-to shop for brands like Isabel Marant and Zero + Maria Cornejo -- which are now up for grabs in their mega sale. Items are going fast, so snatch up these deals - in store and online - while you still can.
The Metier web store will remain open, selling only jewelry, and it's safe to say this isn't the last we'll seen of this fashion-breathing crew. But for now, we bid them adieu.
Mid-afternoon style break with a side of sangria, anyone? We thought so. Desigual (which roughly translates as “It’s not the same,” in Spanish) celebrates the opening of its much-anticipated San Francisco store tomorrow in Union Square. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it: sneak over during the afternoon for sangria, tapas, tunes and discounts on the bold-hued apparel that has made the Barcelona-based fashion brand a hit throughout Europe.
We recently had the chance to learn a few new tricks from sought-after San Francisco makeup artist Robert Williams, a runway show veteran who’s spent the last three decades working with everyone from Naomi Campbell to Nancy Pelosi and was recently tapped to head up all things beauty at Saks Fifth Avenue’s The Fifth Avenue Club.
