With a holiday weekend looming large, Burning Man in full swing and Fashion Week just around the corner, it’s a quieter week than most on the San Francisco fashion scene. But there are still stylish adventures to be had in the coming days, including a new boutique opening, a trunk show and the launch of an independent fashion line. You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
- Fans of luxe labels will embrace the opening of Curve, whose San Francisco location is now open in Pacific Heights. The upscale shop that owner Nevena Borissova first launched in Los Angeles in 1997 arrives in one of the City’s toniest shopping neighborhoods with racks boasting labels such as Alexander McQueen, Burberry Prorsum, Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant, Balmain, Christopher Kane and Gareth Pugh.
- On Sunday, say no to short-sleeve farmer’s tans and hello to margaritas during the launch party at Sui Generis for new men’s tank top line Cute Tank.
- Also on Sunday, head east for Convert’s Prairie Underground Trunk Show to sample the label’s looks for fall and take advantage of wardrobe tips from an on-site stylist. Grade school-themed treats (think PB&J cupcakes and spiked “Capri-in-the-Sun” bevs) will be on tap. Continuing the back-to-school theme, post a pic of yourself from your formative years on the Berkeley shop’s Facebook wall, and you could win a piece from the Prairie Underground fall collection – the shot with the most “likes” wins.
- And although it should go without saying, the most fashionable thing you can do this week: enjoy summer’s last long weekend.
You can find details on all of these events and more happening this week on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
