    When designer Louisa Parris left the Bay for her native London earlier this year, San Francisco definitely lost one of its best fashion talents in town. But that doesn't mean the Central Saint Martins alum has forgotten about these parts.

    Need evidence? Look no further than Parris' second scarf collection, which was inspired by the colorful Victorian homes that dot our city, and includes six graphic pieces named after S.F.-centric locales like Fillmore, Dolores, Church, Clipper, Noe, and the all-encompassing Bay.

    "The collection was one I always wanted to do, because I just love the design and architecture of San Francisco houses," Parris, a former Noe Valley resident, tells us. "The color combinations always surprised me and I wanted to see if I could make them work in my own designs."

    Parris took that inspiration, along with the vivid shades brought to life by the California sunlight, to color her collection, while her hand drawings and love for all things graphic played into the design.

    Take a look at the results in the lookbook, shot in Cali by local photographer and Instagram superstar Michael O'Neal, after the jump. Look close enough and you might even spy a familiar face in model Jenna Boulé, one of our recent Real Girl, Real Beauty subjects!
