main
Think Hayes Valley's standout shopping block couldn't get any hotter? Well, guess again — two beloved outposts are upping the ante and welcoming designers to stop by for a duo of can't-miss trunk shows. Yep, top-notch names (including local fave 2 Bandits) are heading to Rand + Statler and Azalea... and bringing along super-fly designs with them! Whether you’re looking for an over-the-top hat selection or some off-the-cuff jewels, these trunk shows are sure to deliver. Peep the details below and get ready to nail fall style before the leaves even hit the ground.
Gretchen Jones and Janessa Leone Trunk Show
After witnessing Gretchen Jones absolutely kill it with her final winning collection on season eight of Project Runway, we instantly knew we had to get our hands on her print-tastic wares. And now, we’re finally going to get that chance thanks to Rand + Statler’s latest trunk show, as Jones will be there to present her latest eponymous collection. So, what could possibly top off an event already this cool? Designer Janessa Leone will also be on the scene with her ultra-fab fascinators that have us turning into mad hatters. Plus, the R29 team will be co-hosting the sartorial soirée, so come stop by to clink a few glasses with us and peruse the stellar pieces.
When: Saturday, October 6, 1 to 5 p.m.
Where: Rand + Statler, 425 Hayes Street (at Gough Street); 415-634-0881.
Luv AJ and 2 Bandits Trunk Show
If you’ve hit a fashion rut, it may be tempting to snatch up trendy items in one fell swoop. Trust, we’ve been there. But, sometimes, all it takes to feel sartorially recharged is a revamped jewelry box. Coming to the resucue is Azalea’s double-dose of trinket trunk shows, where we can get our hands on the pretty gilded bips and bops made by Luv AJ and 2 Bandits. Plus, we get to meet the ladies behind the labels, Tamar Wider and Amanda Thomas, who are sure to charm the pants off us. Once you’ve picked up the pretty baubles, be sure to grab a glass of spiked lemonade and a stick of fluffy cotton candy from the carnival fare experts at Straw. Scour the deets below and get ready to sparkle and shine!
When: Saturday, October 6, 1 to 5 p.m.
Where: Azalea, 411 Hayes Street (at Gough Street); 415-861-9888.
