It’s pretty much a given that any time we stroll into Acrimony or ACRE/SF we're not likely to walk out empty-handed. The standout, contemporary sister shops are considerably stocked with hard-to-nab brands and innovative new labels we’re always elated to explore — a bulk of which arrive in the store from abroad. And it looks like owner Jenny Chung has unearthed yet another up-and-coming import line and is giving us an insider, stateside peek at Scandinavian brand Second Female.

(Meaning the former cannot possible be true.) Instead, it's Luanna Perez-Garreaud — the woman behind this throwback feed — who's read
