Warby Parker and SF Ballet pas de deux.
When it comes to the new ballet Otherness, San Francisco Ballet is seeing cool. So are the dancers who are sporting Warby Parker sunglasses for all the performances, which run through May 4. The ballet, part of Unbound: A Festival of New Works, is an abstract Romeo and Juliet story set in a Wes Anderson-like world. "The way Warby Parker uses art and design to nurture and uplift the community aligns closely with my values and the San Francisco Ballet's. The eyeglasses symbolize the way we're programmed to see the world," explains choreographer Myles Thatcher. The shades of choice: the Haskell ($95), available for purchase in all WP's SF stores. See, who cares if you can't grand jeté—you can still look like a bunhead. // 357 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley) and 216 Stockton St. (Union Square), warbyparker.com

Girls of all sizes need stylish essentials. And Comfort.
A new SF fashion label called And Comfort just launched its first capsule collection made up of four easy pieces: a Mandarin collar tunic, pima cotton tee, apron dress, and wrap skirt. Styles are minimalist, sizes are 10–28, and prices range from $45–$140. The mission is to inspire women of varying shapes to delight in the everyday, to make dressing fun and, yes, comfortable. Everything is made from luxe natural fibers, including organic cotton poplin. Founder Karine Hsu was moved to create the line for modern plus-size women who don't have the wealth of clothing choices she thinks they should. Growing up, it was heartbreaking for Hsu to watch her mom struggling to find clothes that fit and that she loved. Clearly, no longer the case. // Shop online, andcomfort.com

Who says you have to travel to Turkey to get a deal on a great rug?
Home design freaks and ordinary folk seeking quality vintage Turkish rugs need not look further than SF e-brand Revival Rugs. Like a jillion brilliant ideas before it, this one was born of a real-life problem: Cofounders and married couple Ben (also cofounder of Brooklinen) and Amber Hyman wanted to find a handmade rug at a fair price. No easy task, as it turns out, if spending thousands isn't part of the plan. A few months and a honeymoon trip to Istanbul later, Revival Rugs was born and connecting consumers—sans middlemen—to beautiful one-of-a-kind, vintage rugs at reasonable prices (starting at $116). The all-important last piece of the puzzle? Revival's other cofounders, Joyce Kong and Kurt Korkmaz. They're based in Turkey and way hip to the ins and outs of the country's complicated modern-day antique rug market and the best sources. // Shop online revivalrugs.com and IRL at SF's Batch (1648 Pacific Ave.).
