Street Style Report: A Local Stylist Wears Alexander Wang in Union Square

Street Style Report:

Last weekend we spotted, Jun Chung, an edgy stylist at 111 Maiden Lane Salon, out for a walk in Union Square. Jun is originally from S. Korea, but has called San Francisco home for the past 15 years. By day, Jun gives great hair to the men and women of SF. By night, he's an aspiring home chef, and soon to be father of two (Jun's 6-year-old daughter, Zoe, made him the colorfully beaded keychain shown above, and he has a baby girl due this July!).

Street Style Report: A Stunning Blue Dress and Fresh Rose, in North Beach

We spotted the lovely Holly Goodin, in a summery blue emboridered dress, en route to a party in North Beach. Holly grew up in the small farm town, Colusa, CA, and moved to San Francisco three years ago, by way of Boston. 

"After living in Boston for three years, I came to adore their classic East Coast style and designers like Lilly Pulitzer," said Holly. "After moving to San Francisco I've learned that the 'Revenge of the Nerds' tech culture is actually very cool."

Seven Favorite Things: Dresses from Bastille

The Union Square boutique, Bastille, is known for their selection of high quality basics. When it comes to their women's wear, that means super wearable dresses that easily shift from day to night. Featuring go-to dress designers like Acne and DVF, here are seven summery frocks to add to your want list.

Look of the Week: Men's Accessories for the Black and White Ball

Here's the rundown on the SF Symphony's Black and White Ball:  Paul Simon. Cyndi Lauper. SF Symphony. June 2nd. Civic Center. All. For. A. Great. Cause. 

With its unique indoor/outdoor block party approach and killer pop/rock lineup, this is one fundraiser that pushes the society event boundaries. That said, why not push back a little with an edgier take on black tie attire?

Street Style Report: Opposites Attract at Rand+Statler, in Hayes Valley

SF Street Style:

While cruising the latest wears at Rand+Statler, we spotted employees and local band members, Jordan Deherrera (left) and Alex Gair (right), in two very different looks. Jordan, in his spiked leather jacket and chunky black shoes, played opposite Alex, in a laid-back tropics look, complete with a straw hat and sockless loafers.

Seven Favorite Things: Department 17

Department 17 is off to a big year. Co-owned by local boys, Nelson JangDaniel Lee, and Adrian Putra, the indie menswear retailer kicked off 2012 with a strong move from their Russian Hill digs into a larger, more shopper-friendly space in Hayes Valley

With the cushy square footage, the boys beefed-up their quality-first brand list, adding fresh faces like Reigning Champ (#4) of Canada, and Kitsune of Paris, to the roster.
