With a bundle of worthwhile fashion events on the horizon, we couldn’t resist packing this week’s list to capacity. On the SF Indie Fashion Calendar, you’ll find chances to shop for a good cause, indulge in fashion and tech, scope new work from local labels and take in eco and emerging designs during two separate fashion shows. Brace yourself, this week is a (delightful) doozy.
Here’s an excuse to causally inquire (okay, demand) the circumference of any bicept-ually well-endowed men you’ve been eying: San Francisco menswear label Alley Collection is on the hunt for a real man to be the face of its forthcoming Spring/Summer 2012 line.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: Le Tahoe jacket, $250, from San Francisco-based Aksel Paris, whose newly-launched Courcheval Collection features six multi-season men’s coats worth wrapping up in whenever a cold snap strikes.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: the newly-released, hand-embroidered skinny Scorpion Tie, $150, available in white or black silk from San Francisco-based designer Bacca Da Silva.
NICE Collective fans, your adventure begins at 2111 Market in the Castro. The San Francisco-based label’s latest pop-up retail quest, the Mobile Supply Unit (MSU), has silently landed into this relatively concealed space at Market and Church.
