Looking for wildly inventive New Year’s Eve hair inspiration? Maybe you’ll pick up a few ideas from Ginger Rubio Salon’s The Hunt fashion and hair event, held at DNA Lounge this fall. Channeling Little Red Riding Hood and Twilight, the model’s moody up-dos, “boho meets barbarian” men’s cuts, feathers, braids and exaggerated extensions were inspired by German forests, supple leather, utility, fantasy and history.
In the window at Picnic: just in time for the holiday season, this posh shop’s window got us staring with sumptuous scarves, cozy coats, sweaters to swaddle yourself in by the fire, vintage-inspired housewares, stocking-worthy extras and accessories to compliment your next party dress.
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.
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.
For some designers, their calling is crystal clear from the moment they sit in front of a sewing machine or pick up a pencil and draw their first sketch. And then there is Jeff Oakes, a San Francisco designer who almost accidentally stumbled upon his now-blossoming career producing hand-printed and woven scarves, totes and home accessories with a socially-responsible twist.
