"Tomorrow I'll be famous forever." With those words scrawled graffiti-like by Dutch artist Selwyn Senatori on the back of her Sunaj jacket, Sonya Molodetskaya epitomized the chic irony of Maison Margiela's new boutique on Maiden Lane at its recent opening party.
We're always proud to claim design luminary Yves Behar as San Francisco's own, and the curly-haired superstar has outdone himself once again: Just feast your eyes upon his futuristic design for the Alchemy Lounge, a pop-up cocktail bar at Milan's Teatro Versace.
Wouldn't it be nice if, by lounging around your apartment all day in a t-shirt and undies, you could make a difference in the world? Well now you can -- with PACT.
Last week, the do-good, Berkeley-based, hip-hugging underwear brand, PACT, launched a line of basic tops to match their everyday-sexy underwear. Like the undies, these tops are hyper sustainable, too -- PACT’s shirts are manufactured under the strictest social and environmental standards, and a portion of each purchase is donated to a PACT Cause.
Yves Behar has been busy. The exhibition he curated at YBCA, “Tecnocraft,” just wrapped up, and his new Sayl task chair for Herman Miller is one hot-ticket item. His latest design gives us some insight into how he keeps on top of his busy schedule: his just created the Vue watch, which he designed in partnership with Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake.
The watch is both ethereal and minimalist, and like most of Behar’s projects, unexpectedly affordable (models range from $400–500). And you can get your hands on one on Wednesday, December 15 at the official product launch at Propeller in Hayes Valley, where Behar himself will be on hand to discuss his design process, show prototypes and autograph watches.
