It’s pretty easy to understand why we’re absolutely enamored with the Mission-based eatery Saison. With its stellar cuisine, intoxicating rustic ambiance, and Joshua Skenes, freshly minted as Best New Chef by Food & Wine, at its helm—it’s hands-down one of the best restos in the Bay. And now it's wowed us once again by teaming up with the collaboration connoisseurs over at Levi’s for a line of custom-made (and super-cool) uniforms. Designer Aylin Beyce (you’ll recall our profile on her adorable abode) gave us a sneak-peek at the duds, which successfully fuse Saison and Levi’s dual aesthetics into practical, extra-handsome pieces that work well outside the kitchen.
