Thanks to its dense, rambling architecture and its (sometimes) romantic fog, San Francisco has been gamely referred to as the Paris of the West. But we?d argue it?s our effortless ?Oh, this old thing?? approach to fashion that also conjures a certain French insouciance.
It?s perfectly fitting, then, that street-meets-chic brand Sandro chose SF for its first California location. The Parisian brand epitomizes the versatile French look--think dark colors and clean lines--that is at once rebellious and elegant.
Bonus: The sophisticated mix of materials is particularly well suited to ambiguous temperatures.
We?re pretty much in love with the entire fall collection. Stop in to pick up autumn must-haves like these of-the-moment pajama pants ($340), an understated yet edgy tweed coat with leather detailing ($810) or a cool graphic top ($320).
Just add some leather booties ($565) and you?ll be transported to the 6th arrondissement, minus the jet lag.
