7x7 Magazine's annual Best of SF showcases all you could ever hope to eat, drink, see, buy, know, and do in the city. Here is the Best of Style:

Intermix CEO Khajak Keledjian Talks the New Palo Alto Store

Multi-brand boutique Intermix – arguably the sexiest member of the Gap family (they were acquired in December 2012) – is set to open its 38th brick-and-mortar inside Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village tomorrow. Founder and CEO Khajak Keledjian reveals the secret to his success –”retail is detail” – and gives us his take on Bay Area fashion – it's “chill-lux”.

CCA's Emerging Designer of the Year + Highlights from the Fashion Show

7x7 had the privilege of naming CCA's Class of 2014’s Emerging Designer of the Year. We want to extend a big congratulation to Erick Lopez, whose team of soccer players in oversized neoprene jerseys, jackets with exaggerated shoulders, and one man-skirt won us over. A nod to Belgian designers with perhaps a dash of Yeezy, his vision was what Levi’s Chief Merchandising Officer Grant Barth said, “on the pulse of the growing trend of athletic fashion.” 

Christian Louboutin Opens on Maiden Lane

Red-sole shoe extraordinaire Christian Louboutin softly opened on Maiden Lane on Monday. The 1650-square-foot space carries both men and women's collections as well as bags, like the new Passage messenger expected later this month. 

Plan a Weekend Escape to Palm Springs

Palm Springs, once a desert playground for the likes of the Rat Pack and their purportedly tempermental lady loves is now a destination for neohippies (aka flower-strewn Coachella and Stagecoach festivalgoers) and modern design enthusiasts alike.

Local Label Tradlands' Menswear Inspired Shirts are Fit for Spring

Tradlands is hoping to provide local ladies with the perfect basic: a menswear-inspired oxford shirt.
