It may seem early to start thinking about gifts, but is it really? This week brings us into November, and we’re accustomed to the weeks flying by after that. With that in mind, there’s no time like the present (sorry) to start collecting locally-made giftables for the special people on your list. A current fave: bath and body products from San Francisco’s Etta and Billie.
Find details on this week’s Verrieres & Sako Trunk Show and other upcoming San Francisco fashion events waiting on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar. And of course, as you know, it doesn’t stop there. We’re adding new fashion happenings all the time, so check back often.
Along with the fun of Columbus Day sales from many local shops, the week ahead brings an assortment of trunk shows and shopping opps closely aligned with the indie fashion ethos. The lion’s share take place on Friday evening, when you’ll find the Calivintage Pop-Up at Pretty Penny in Oakland, as well as a fashion-filled birthday fete for Wonderland SF owner Irene Hernandez-Feiks, an Elizabeth Street Cosmetics & Honey Cooler Handmade Trunk Show and – also in Oakland – a Voce Keen Trunk Show at Hawthorn.
The BowensBergeron Clutch Collection is just about everything we’d want an independent fashion line to be: each bag is made of eco-friendly materials and recycled wood in the U.S.A. in signed, numbered limited editions of 25. Designed by Tamara S. Bowens and handcrafted by A. Ray Bergeron, the clutches are custom made and take up to a month to produce. The result is streamlined style that pairs an earth-friendly ethos with modern, minimalist panache.
