Now I just love wine and roses, so it makes beaucoup de sense that I’d like San Francisco designer Amanda Archer’s latest collection. Just in time for fall and perfect for San Francisco weather, Wine & Roses includes some great timeless pieces like a belted wool tweed trench, blue silk charmuese dress with glass beaded lace collar and a silk satin tie at the waist and a black silk satin dress with an attached scarf you could wear several different ways. Pictured here, my favorite item, is the French Cloque dress. It’s funky enough to stand out, but clean and classic enough to go to an interview or must-impress meeting. Prrr. V. cool.
Amanda Archer will be at the next Appel & Frank on Sept. 14. Pisser that I will be missing that. Luckily, I happen to know that Archer is very good about responding to personal emails. She’ll also take custom jobs from time to time.
