Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: the holiday season tends to kick our very-American appetite for excess into high-gear. Whatever it is you may hankering for this month, get in the mood with the Hungry Like a Wolf Tee, $27, designed by San Franpsycho co-owner Andy Olive.
Opening this weekend in San Francisco is STOREFRONT: Holiday Pop-Up brought to you by DNA (designers+artists) and Free Gold Watch. This free-to-attend event showcases local designers, designer vintage, art and great gifts in one sweet spot.
Are you a French fashion fanatic but can’t seem to find the time or money to book a flight, fly 5,000+ miles and scour the cobblestone streets of Paris? Mais pas pleurer! Newly launched, San Francisco-based online boutique Mikimoiselle is supplying stateside French fashion lovers with a well-edited shop featuring exclusive and hard-to-find independent designers hailing from France and Japan.
If you’re looking to shop local and give items made by independent and fabulous Bay Area designers, artisans and creative folks this holiday season, the next three weeks are your oyster. There are a slew of great indie shop opps on the horizon, as well as a beauty fundraiser for public schools and a launch party you won’t want to miss. As always, you’ll find the details on these and many more great upcoming events on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
On a late November Sunday, there was something for just about everyone at Thread Show, whether you fancy rock star jewelry made from guitar picks, saucy lingere with skull face cut-outs or just an afternoon spent amongst designers, down tempo DJs, and fans of local fashion.
