If you spot a silver Airstream trailer outside W hotel starting on Friday, you may want to venture inside. The touring French Fashion Tour vehicle will be visiting 10 U.S. cities in the coming weeks, and San Francisco is the first stop. Stocked with an array of up-and-coming French designers and products, the mobile showroom promises a glimpse of goods you won’t find everywhere in the States.
Among the merch on display is apparel and accessories from brands such as jewelry designers Corpus Christi, Appartement a Louer and Delphine-Charlotte Parmentier; men’s and womenswear brand Marchand Drapier; equestrian-inspired refined leather accessories by Guibert Paris; Royalties, the classic sock with a modern French twist made in France; accessories labels Maison F, Chapal, Atelier Mercadal; and Site Corot, manufacturer of Porcelain de Limoges.
The trailer’s stint in the City by the Bay ends Aug. 13, so vite, vite.
