This past Saturday North Beach played host as “dirtheads” flooded in for the launch of Free Dirt, a local brand with a healthy dose of in-your-face attitude celebrating the arrival of a new online store and men’s clothing line featuring brightly-colored jackets, hats and (it’s true) a t-shirt dubbed the Dirty Sanchez*. On the scene: friends, bloggers and photographers hitting the dance floor and downing mini tacos.
At the recent All Vintage Everything pop-up shop from DNA (designers+artists), shopping and vintage fans turned up at the Sub-Mission Gallery for the clothes, shoes, bags and jewelry from a roster of vendor hosted by local favorites Fancy Fine and Mousevox Vintage.
In the window at Acre/SF: the allure of Blue Bottle Coffee and a cozy sitting space with stylish apparel and accessories at arm’s length is a sight for sore eyes after the near-vertical walk to this North Beach shop’s location. A quick reward comes in the form of an accessories table with Karen Walker sunglasses and Joomi Lim Spike bracelets just through the door.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: jewelry to warm up your winter wardrobe comes in the form of Van Kim Le’s knitted chain necklaces. Find a unique statement piece like the gunmetal Keyhole Necklace, $90, online at Love+Keep.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: guys and girls alike can refurbish a button up sitting idle in the back of the closet with a Marlene Dietrich-inspired plaid bowtie, $27, from San Francisco-based Intwined.
