Shop Talk: Melissa Fleis Trunk Show + Flywheel Spins Into Town

By

"Shopping is a woman thing. It's a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase."―Erma Bombeck


Trunk Show Alert: NWBLK x Melissa Fleis


She peaced out of SF a few years ago, but we still have mad love for Melissa Fleis, the former Project Runway contestant (Season 10) and current LA designer named "One to Watch" by WWD for her fall collection. Lucky for us, she's in town and holding a trunk show at NWBLK in the Mission on Friday, September 23, 6pm to 10pm. On tap: limited-edition handmade items such as cool leather motos, architectural dresses, and tops you'll want to wear everywhere. RSVP. // 1999 Bryant St. (Mission), melissafleis.com

Pac Heights welcomes Intermix to the hood. Shop to it...(Courtesy Intermix)

Fillmore Street Gets an Intermix

With the Fillmore Street opening of Gap-owned Intermix last week, it's as if the former Black Fleece store never existed (RIP). The bright and airy boutique, featuring a gorgeous hand-painted mural by local artist Kelly Ording, is chockfull of designer labels (Veronica Beard, Rag & Bone, and Jonathan Simkhai) including many not so familiar to SF shoppers, such as Caroline Constas and Cinq a Sept. The merch mix has a decidedly New York vibe, but smart buyers have done a great job curating for their Pac Heights audience. P.S. In other Gap Inc. news: Athleta just opened up shop in Banana Republic's Grant Street flagship. // 2223 Fillmore St. (Pac Heights), intermixonline.com
