Highlights from San Francisco Thread Show, November 20, 2011

After a year of wanting-but-failing to go to San Francisco Thread Show at Metreon, Downtown SF, finally I found one Sunday where my time was open. It’s quite a coincidence because a good friend of mine was reminding me about it about a week before and wanting to know whether I’d accompany her into this shopping event :) But thanks to her, I finally got to experience this one of the most well-organized, professionally done, and great shopping experiences that San Francisco has to offer. Local and emerging designers, craftsmen, hair and makeup stylists, food vendors, DJ, an others gathered in the 4th floor of Metreon Shopping Center to show what they got and helped shoppers to find what they need. Everybody I stopped by to chat with were very nice and welcoming. The merchandises were great, but what warmed me the most was the laid-back, friendly way each vendor was interacting with the shoppers. It just completed the whole experience, no matter if you went out with one shopping bag, several ones, or none. It’s just great to be there. That being said, I have several favorites that I’d like to get a shout-out to: 1. Abrot My photographer Christian always has an eye for great bags (women’s and men’s alike). So when he suddenly disappeared from my side and was quickly found at Abrot’s booth, I immediately looked over at their bags and boy, they didn’t disappoint. We were immediately drawn to the black leather messenger bag (pictured left, top right corner) that has the utilitarian appeal as a cute mini briefcase. It falls to the right place on...

Kite Architecture – tsui no sumika

Can I have a house designed by Kite Architecture please? Because this tsui no sumika looks so amazing. Hontou ni subarashii desu!! Twisted roof and ceiling, irregularities, serene but quirky setting…. it really makes you rethink the concept of home architecture and design. What really sells it for me is the unique point of the ability to feel each other’s presence in this space. How amazing is that? So in love, Musank...
