Local closet staple American Giant isn't resting on its
laurels hoodies. Cue the new collection of buttery smooth, breathable leggings ($80) and tanks ($40) made of premium American cotton. Cotton Sport is AG's first take on true athleisure and, unlike so many run-around-town styles, these babies move with you (phew!). Along with the major comfy factor, the tops and bottoms have minimal seams and come in a range of eye-catching colors. They also flatter lots of figures so, yeah, we know what we're wearing on our next coffee date.
Huf celebrates the legacy of skateboarder Pablo Ramirez with new capsule collection.

It drops tomorrow, March 10th: Huf x PRF (Pablo Ramirez Foundation) is a melding of the beloved SF skate brand and the beloved SF skateboarder/artist/musician for whom the foundation is named. (ICYMI: Pablo Ramirez, a man who oozed talent, passion and spirituality, died in an auto accident in 2019.) The curated collection of cool hoodies, tees, socks and more features Pablo's artwork and writings. Proceeds benefit PRF, whose mission is to help promote a positive lifestyle for kids and young adults through skateboarding, art, and music.
The capsule is part of the larger Power of Pablo, a celebration including a series of fun events around town, from March 10th to 13th.
Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates spring with fresh florals at Westfield Valley Fair.

Apparently, trendy immersive experiences aren't just for famous dead artists and ice cream: Fine jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels recently transformed the center court of Silicon Valley's Westfield Valley Fair into a floral sketchbook. Designed by French artist Alexandre Benjamin Navet, the installation will be in bloom through the last day of March.
The multidisciplinary artist is known for various techniques a la Japanese watercolor and pencil, as well as his use of bright colors, objects, and architectural forms that allow him to tell stories in a simple and playful language. They're all at work here—bringing the vitality of nature to life.
Of course, the dreamy exhibit includes plenty of sparkle and shine—showcasing VC&A's flora- and fauna-inspired gems and timepieces. Best part? You get to try on select pieces as part of the experience. Special orders of your favorites are available, too.
In other good news, the French jeweler will be opening a San Francisco boutique in April (stay tuned for more deets).
