Nanushka: Casual and Chic

Oh Nanushka!  We love this designer from Budapest!  Her pieces are a perfect mixture of casual and chic--neutral colors, lusciously soft cottons, and edgy cuts.  We pulled a few selections from her Fall 2010 look book of items we have in stock at Gramercy:

We love how effortless these are!  They remind us of the Dries Van Noden Fall 2010 show in Paris--pairing monochrome sweatshirt-like tops with colorful prints and upscale silks.  It's a perfect combination of high-low that is so in right now!

We played around with this inspiration with our Nanushka wraps and vests to evoke a similar feel.  Kitty paired the camel wrap with a gold medallion necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane, and the beige vest with a printed silk Koch tunic top.  These outfits mix fashion-forward with informal, and the result is so much fun--you will feel like you walked straight off the runway!

Love how the wrap looks from the back!

  3. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
