Independent fashion boutiques are tucked throughout San Francisco's bustling neighborhood shopping districts. Here's a sample of specialty women's stores and how they interpret trends for spring.
"The must-have fashion piece is an oversize scarf as a wrap or layered around your neck for a dramatic effect," declared Cristina Moe, an owner of Hush, 1878 Union Street, in lower Pacific Heights (myhush.com). The boutique is stocking colorful silk and cotton scarves from India, some personalized for Hush with Hindu prayer prints ($150 to $200). Other expected standouts are the season's bright colors, like canary yellow seen in a silk sleeveless racer-back top ($245) by San Francisco native Alexander Wang and a long sleeveless electric-blue cardigan for $154 by Clu, which go with $500 patent leather totes in bright yellow, navy and white by Graham and Spencer.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
