San Francisco Fashion, is a fusion of both timeless style and the latest trends.The opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s paints the perfect image of timeless style. Audrey Hepburn pulls up to Tiffany’s and steps out of the taxi, a croissant and coffee in hand, as the enchanting melody of Moon River softly plays in the background. The camera slowly pans out to reveal Audrey in the timeless little black dress which is now viewed as the milestone of fashion of the twentieth century. As the icing on the cake, Ms. Hepburn is wearing the iconic black Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses and is ornamented with pearls and a simple tiara.
I would just like to know if there is a little girl out there who has not, at one point or another, acted out this scene in their mother's pearls and high heels? Timeless fashion is a thread that weaves through the closets of women around the world, styles that were first drawn out by legends such as Coco Chanel and Christian Dior.
The key to timeless style is simplicity and confidence of the fabulous women who live their lives in it. Though one could argue that because of its longevity timeless style deserves far more esteem then the trends that come and go, it is these trends that define an era and make the world remember their generation's vision. For who does not want to be the trendy woman, walking down Powell street, with the over sized blazer, studded pumps and the chunky jewelry that all together screams “I’m fearless”?
San Francisco fashion is a daring celebration of the two, it is a city bustling with women and men that walk the streets as fiercly as if it were a cat walk. In today's world, we can be both fearless and classic, that same chic girl walking down Powell Street could be walking through the doors of the classic Kensington Park Hotel. Proving that we do not have to choose! Give me a leather jacket but let me add my vintage pearls.
That is San Francisco Fashion!
