Former Vogue fashion editor and Bay Area native Emily Holt designed a unique space pairing global fashion ideas with local talent and offering a fun mix of ready-to-wear, jewelry, accessories, home and gift items. It’s a treat to see style like this in the city. This shop brings it up a notch.

3) KIM + ONO

A sweet boutique owned and operated by two sisters who’ve discovered a way to share the age-old tradition of the kimono with the modern world. They’ve designed beautiful botanical-inspired silk and charmeuse pieces that can be worn for intimate and special occasions, and casually for every day.

4) Atelier Lan Jaenicke

This may be the softest, most sumptuous shop in all of SF. By this, I mean luxurious textures of cashmere and silk. Lan’s signature coats and jackets are coveted around the world, and this is her studio where she designs and showcases her collection.

5) Freda Salvador

A cult line of super-stylish, super-edgy and ever walkable footwear designed by two local Bay Area women. The design studio is nearby in Sausalito and all the shoes are handcrafted at a family factory in Spain. Casual and cool, you can wear these from day to night.
