Classics like this burnt orange Mack, micro-floral mini-dresses, and navy linen dresses galore are waiting for YOU!
See by Chloe finally launched a gorgeous handbag line for Spring 09!
The concept is geared to the 18-to-30 age group, the styles such as these slouchy shoulder bags are inspired by sport bags from the ’70s. There are also glittery soft clutches, and logo-splashed cotton canvas shoppers (this is my fave). The leather is super soft and worn in, and price points are reasonable, ranging from $300-$675. Most of the styles will come towards March 09 so check back often! In the meantime, here are the styles we just got in.
For those of you who live in a sneaker universe, Common Projects is as good as it gets when it comes to being Perfect. Hand-stitched, number stamped, they are made in Italy using the finest leathers and materials. It’s like the Mercedes Benz of sneakers. They will look better as they age too. I wish all things are likewise…
Read this article in Sneaker Freaker – there is an interview with the 2 founders of Common Projects!
A little bit of background on these cool brand:
Common Projects Sneakers by Ami Kealoha
I have not met Joel Knoernschild. When we got our first shipment of his debut collection Kazuo last week, he made my list of “Who I want to meet.” I loved everything from this line that I wish I was a boy. But since that is not an option, I need to convince my man to be dressed in this stuff. Joel is a half caucasian, half Japanese, and this heritage fueled his unique interpretation of crossing over Japanese street wear with California cool. The line is named after his grandpa Kazuo, who was a Japanese-American during the hard era of WWII. He quoted, “…that’s why a lot of this brand draws from remixing military themes, as well as the “Z” in K.Z.O (Kazuo) coming from the ‘Z’ in the Japanese internment camp ‘Manzanar.’” (- from Evil Monito site, http://evilmonito.com/2008/07/20/joel-knoernschild/).
Joel actually came to our store, and thought that we’ll represent KZO really well.
I was working at the store last weekend and was obssessing about what my next purchase would be. When you own a store, you just can’t help but thinking about it all the time. So when I asked Corey, one of our employees, he was also thinking the same thing! So I had an idea about sharing our latest favorite items at the store in our blog. Corey picked this bright, red Acne windbreaker as his item. I asked him why he hasn’t bought it yet. And then we both looked at the price tag and were like “Holymoly! It’s $445!” Well, it is from the coolest brand ever, swedish import: Acne Jeans and it’s made of a beautiful Gore-Tex like fabric that is really light but quite warm. We like to wear this one over a thin hoody or knit. It’s actually really perfect for San Francisco weather.
Anyways, here he is, wearing the no.1 item on his wishlist! Oh, and we are having a Sale starting this week on women’s and men’s collection, so look for this great jacket on the 20% off rack, so its now $356!
Stay tuned for more Azalea Team’s latest obssessions! Cos, that’s what we all think about here, when we aren’t helping out our customers…
