The rack of vintage clothing at well-curated Anica has always been one of those little secrets that true San Francisco fashion folks know about. Well, the secret's out. The shop is taking its vintage selection online or all to enjoy. A few more favorites below.
If you've ever spent any time in San Francisco, you'll know that the city pretty much has one season. We like to call it "always bring a sweater" weather. For Harputs Market this affords them the opportunity to slowly refine and add to a core collection of clothing the shop has been working on for the past year or so. Instead of joining the rat race of producing two collections a year, Harputs started their collection with no fanfare and has been adding to it piece by piece, refining the design and manufacturing themselves directly upstairs. The line is not so much basics, as a series of considered fashion experiments, producing unique pieces that are ever so wearable.
Eden & Eden is not, it turns out, redundant. There really are two of them. There's a sophisticated Eden that travels the Europe and collects notable design objects and jewelry, even tracking down one off vintage items. And the quirky Eden that injects a bit of humor and quirk into the collection. The result is a shop that curates a truly unique and cosmopolitan (with a particular emphasis on England) selection of home accessories, tableware, textiles, jewelry and clothing with nary a hint of stuffiness.
We're not sure what the concept is exactly, but we're impressed. The Mi Concept is a new store/collection based out of San Francisco. The store is on 808 Sutter Street. The collection (or what few pieces of it we found photos of) looks like a toned down Rick Owens. We found it on Harputs Market's blog. Besides that one blog post and a vague (thought pretty damn cool) website, we have nothing else to go on. More when we know it.
We'll be visiting the Bay Area from mid-week through this weekend. If there are any new shops we should see, people we should meet or events we should know about, please let us know.
