Time to shimmer, socialize, shade your eyes, and scarf macarons.
Sunnies and sweets make the best collab. Obvi.
Watch out Glossier at Rhea's, there's another scrumptious and huh?!-inducing local fashion and food collab in our midst. On Tuesday, April 3rd, Les Deux—the coming together of sunglass label Westward Leaning and confectioner Chantal Guillon—debuts. The limited-edition sunnies come in a trio of tasty styles inspired by CG's most popular Parisian-meets-Cali macarons. Hello, Coffee Mint Wayfarer, Red Velvet Cat-Eye and Sparkling Champagne Aviator. The shades ($185–$205) are available at the patisserie's Hayes Valley shop through April 30th; and, ooh la la, each purchase comes with a complimentary box of six of the namesake sweets (two of each flavor). In other Westward Leaning news…the cool AF brand is set to open its first brick-and-mortar in Cow Hollow (in the former Les Lunes space) in mid April. Eye Caramba! // Chantal Guillon, 437 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley), chantalguillon, westwardleaning
American Giant is officially in the men's pants biz.
And we're not talking sweatpants here. Au contraire, the Roughneck Pant ($125), a five-pocket style that's made of heavyweight canvas with a hint of stretch is the SF company's first bona fide pant. The jean-like bottoms are inspired by classic workwear (yay, durability) and made in Los Angeles with canvas milled in Georgia. Available in two shades, basalt and falcon, and with a keen attention to fit, the Roughneck, like all American Giant pieces, is designed to get shit done. And as our friend at AG put it: TL;DR these pantz are sexy as hell. Unsurprisingly, the utilitarian wonders pair perfectly with the greatest hoodie ever made. // Shop online at american-giant.com.
