I don’t know how you could not know her. This is Sha, she runs the shop. She’s the one that takes care of you, so be nice. Or she’ll bite your fuckin head off.
With the influx of Spring 2010 assortments bombarding me from every corner of the earth, I haven’t been able to properly look through all the must-see designers. So when the obvious inquisition about Mihara Yasuhiro S10 came up, I was embarrassingly unprepared. Well let’s go through it now, so you’re ready for it. Because it’s that f’in good. Not your Americana,...
Journal Standard on the list
Yes it’s still summer, but San Fran waits for no season. The fog is thick and the jacket is on. So winter perusing amidst planning for Japan is appropriate. I was looking through an old JOURNAL STANDARD catalog and thought about how important it is to mix high quality items with reasonable basics for the sake of layering. One big, amazing hand knit sweater, paired with an easy thermal and a...
¡¡Intern in Europe!!
Hey ya’ll So for the month of July, we sent our intern to Europe so she could attend Paris Fashion Week, fall in a love with a Frenchman named Pierre, and drink caviar flavored champagne in a bucket of gold. JUUUUUUST KIDDING. Well, we really did have an intern in Paris. And she did document her trip for us. Please have a look and enjoy Erica’s adventures! -ACRIMONY ...
Pretty psyched to be getting the 3sixteen denim in for Fall. SL-100x classic fit and ST-210 wax coated slim fit. YUP.
have a nice muff-wich
…I mean weekend. But if you have time, stop by Citizen Cake for a muff-wich. Try not to giggle when ordering, let’s be adults here. Muff-wich = 2 muffin tops to make a sandwich. Geez.
Looking for a travel bag
With all this travel coming up, I want to replace all of my luggage. Something with wheels is preferable, but I still need a carry-on for the mags, the laptop, and the snacks. One of these Bottega Veneta bags would do, if only they’d be released before Spring ‘10. So instead, I’ll settle for a DRKSHDW/Rick Owens for Eastpak bag. Quite the downgrade, quality wise, but at least...
more on shoes
Interesting, the debate around the RRL Bowery boot vs Kiya’s Patina boot vs 1949 work boots from Montgomery Ward’s. Supposedly the Bowery is made on the same last and by the same shoemaker as the Patina//Self-Edge boot. I like how this workman’s style boot is making such a huge resurgence, however, I don’t like the hefty price tag ($750). photos from acontinuouslean...
Kaylee Tankus is one of our best selling women’s lines. Easy, wearable, yet distinctive and original. I like what they do, and apparently so do you. Check out what Raphael Young has done with their freshman attempt at shoes. His vision? Designed for “elegant, sophisticated women who are not afraid to show themselves…”
Last ones become the first
There’s so many great style shots that just never get posted because by the time we’re finished editing and fluffing, the merch is GONE! Perfect example: One Mini Market check mate skirt left, one Heimstone Gilet vest left, one IRO sheer tank left, one no Super flat franks left. Don’t know ‘bout you, but I love snaggin the last one.
There will only be 5 days, and while I’ll try to contain myself from not eating away the entire trip, there is some fashion to be done. SENSE magazine is helping on the fashion inspiration. Mastermind is up first. Yes, the skulls are a bit passe, and the line in the past has been outside the normal Acrimony stance, but the Fall 09 lookbook is interesting at the very least. Reminds me of a...
I can still see you...
I’ve never had more people ask to buy something right off my face than with these glasses. I always thought they were more “ugly//cool” than “I want those//cool.” And no they weren’t my grammies, despite her being pretty fly. Deadstock Cazals with a “rare vintage” sticker that peeled off. Boo. But it got me thinking about sunglasses in general....
My fingers are naked today. Fingers should never go naked. LULU showed me this line of jewelry by Dominic Jones, suitable for just about any girl or guy’s finger fetish. Dominic Jones, hailing from London, will hopefully be in store soon. Take it one step further. Gloves with sterling silver nails. Not for the faint of heart. And only to be worn by women with amazing hair…
