Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: With the San Francisco fog, summer can feel a bit gloomy. Lighten up with a classic chambray shirt, $125, from Taylor Stitch. The tailoring pros just debuted their women’s collection, including this super soft, delicately patterned button down available in blue, black and red. Consider it your wardrobe’s new pick-me-up.
The week ahead is a quieter one than most where local fashion is concerned, but three events stand out. On Friday, SFMade offers a chance to see the inner workings of the fashion biz during its latest local fashion factory tour. Saturday brings an all-day opening party for new Haight Street boutique Wild Feather, and, on Sunday, the annual Fashion on the Square event delivers a fashion show featuring San Francisco’s Joseph Domingo alongside apparel from a varied mix that includes Old Navy, Apple Bottoms, Keneuoe, Dark Garden and San Francisco State University student designers, among others.
As the lights went down in the city, the music was being turned up and drinks were being poured at the recent Wear SF Fashion Mixer thrown by San Francisco fashion startup Boutiika and The Bold Italic. Arriving fashionably late (is there any other way to arrive?) a stylish crowd came dressed to impress in cocktail attire.
Let your hem down with the summer wardrobe essential: a maxi skirt. We’ve found some of the chicest locally-designed skirts to spruce up your closet.
San Francisco’s style landscape is heating up this week, thanks to a bevy of events for those who love local fashion. As usual, Thursday evening brings a crowded calendar, with the latest installment of RAW SF, the kickoff of the Crimson Mim Summer Speaker Series, Loft 1513′s Mid-Summer Fashion Soiree and a Madewell event featuring Honestly…WTF? blogger Erica Chan Coffman. Once the weekend rolls around, there’s the 4th annual Styling the Modern Man Gala, the return of Treasure Island Flea, the very first ModCloth Academy and, a highlight on Saturday night, the Passport to Rio Fashion Show from Bianca Starr productions featuring apparel by nelou‘s global roster of independent designers.
