The new Minimarket collection for Spring is over the top fun and playful. The Swedish really know how to infuse humor into their clothing, without looking like you’re “funny.” My favorite piece from Minimarket this season is the Puppet Shirt. Perfectly peach, with cut-out elbows and the perfect fit.
Instagram is so fun. Took a few photos of a long day’s work. New images up on the site tomorrow!
The new collection of spring 2011 Super styles have just arrived and boy are we glad to get these bad boys on our faces. Though the sun’s been taking it easy for the last few weeks, you should remember that no sunlight doesn’t mean no UV rays. But do you really need a reason to justify picking up any of these new styles?
The classic People frame has come in a new faux-horn style (with brown front and “ivory” contrast) and a great new translucent tonal black. We’ve also carried this style in the with gold-metal details before, but now they’re available as readers! Just pop in your own prescription for some seriously dashing specs.
The ridiculously cool Lucia frame comes in the same light black colorway as the Peoples, but we’re also stocking it in an awesome puma color with gold metal accents.
Available now in store, over the phone, and by e-mail inquiry, but expect them to up on the webstore early next week!
Australian label MyPetsQuare is looking AMAZE for Fall 2011. Both dresses and separates in all nude tones plus a little yellow and a little polka dot make for a really fun way to dress up or dress down with the same few pieces.
I posted a cute open/sheer/mesh print dress from MyPetsQuare Spring that we never booked. I think Fall is ripe for the picking. Expect to see MyPetsQuare in store soon….
Once we ship those packages out, we never know what becomes of those precious pieces. Unlike our in-store customers who regularly frequent the shop wearing their Acrimony purchases, we don’t have the luxury of complimenting our online shoppers on how good they look. Unless you’re Joel. If he were to walk into the shop, we would have to praise him all the time. It would get old. So instead, we can just flip back to this blog post and envy his great sense of style from afar.
Oakland A’s love WHATS UP!
Four amazing new LD TUTTLE styles just hit the shelves!
Available in store, over the phone, and online shortly.
Have you thought of trying a matching tie and shirt? It looks good if it’s the right fabric and pattern…
Must borrow boat, red wig, banging body and red bandage swim suit to replicate this photo.
Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, April issue.
I’m actually not a huge fan of United Nude, but this style in collaboration with Iris Van Herpen has really caught my attention. It’s a corset for your platform, let’s keep it skinny, k?
Spending some time at the Odyn Vovk studio is always a treat for me. Seeing the collection one on one, without the crowds and the mess of lookers by, puts everything into perfect perspective. I can see every detail and ask questions about construction and quality; something you can rarely do while visiting the shows. Check out the upcoming assortment from Odyn Vovk, Fall 2011.
As much as I’d like to wish that $600 pairs of shoes were feasible on a weekly basis, I am a realist and know that no matter how much you love your zapatos, $600 is a spluuuuuurge. They should we well planned out purchases, spent on something you are absolutely dying for. Rich or poor.
So what about the fun stuff? The fashion-y trendy stuff that fills the gaps between the LD Tuttle’s and the Miu Miu’s? Introducing Jeffrey Campbell. Platforms and flatforms and all the in-betweens to fill the “I want something new, NOW” feeling.
Here are just a few pics of what to expect in the coming months:
Introducing Jacob, our newest fresh face at Acrimony. He’s that perfect mix of urban cool and city refined. Daring gray eyes and thick brown curls make for a truly “fresh” face in fashion.

Check out new men’s product from Wings + Horns, Silent by Damir Doma, Gitman Brothers Vintage and Blanc & Noir. HERE.
We’ve been stocking Kai-aakmann’s women’s line for a few seasons now but for Fall we’ve decided to venture into the men’s collection as well. The theme of androgyny still runs deep here, but it’s a bit more masculine and understandable as sometimes it’s easy to go one way but not the other…if you catch my drift, eh? These street style images are from ThisHeartsOnFire, peep their blog. Make sure to plan for a colorful parka with fur.
Yes! We are going to update the website, I promise. The day has been so crazy but I will get up as much as I can. You guys are so demanding! Until then, I leave you with Marcus from our shoot last night…
New Made Her Think leather handbags, spats and belts for Spring ‘11. If you don’t have an ivy green handbag or a cognac tote, you really need to get with it…
My friend John is throwing a party at Manor West in San Francisco tonight with Ava Berlin and Jeffrey Paradise. Z-Trip is the headliner. Don’t you remember when he worked with MSTRKRFT and the album art was by Shepard Fairey post Obey, pre Obama? Join me for drinks!

Who makes these and how do I get my “paws” on them?
