Environmentally-conscious East Bay fashion staple Convert has followed its debut collaboration from last spring with L.A.-based Jeffrey Campbell with a new line of eco-friendly shoes ready to hit the streets early next year. The funky, but earth-friendly result is once again a hip, vegan and sustainable collection of styles available exclusively at the Berkeley boutique.
This holiday season, watch out for the Little Feather SF Winter 2011 Collection by San Francisco designer and Academy of Art alum Melinda Rodriguez, who combines an array of exotic materials (feathers, horns, sequins, bones, crystals, glass beads and even rope) to achieve a result that skillfully balances elegant with bold, fragile with strong.
This week San Francisco is abuzz with boutique parties and trunk shows galore, but eco-fashion fans will want to take note of one show in particular: Jeffrey Levin Reclaimed Wood Jewelry at Cisco Home.
Situated in the heart of the Mission lies a wonderland brimming with items sure to render art collectors and fashion mavens alike giddy with excitement. That this half gallery, half boutique just so happens to be called Wonderland SF is altogether fitting – because that’s exactly what you’ll find inside.
In the window at Ver Unica: Perfectly pressed pleats, luscious leather carryalls, a delicate gold locket and cat-eye framed specs will have you reminiscing about your days spent laboring over reading, writing and arithmetic. Didn’ t have those? Not to worry.
