Bests: Harputs Market in San Francisco
arputs just moved to 1525 Fillmore Street. They’ve also moved their industrial sewing machines out of storage and turned an upstairs loft into a working studio. And Harputs OWN, the boutiques own brand, now sits alongside Martin Margiela, Yohji Yamamoto (!), and Stephan Schneider creations. Rightly so.
I would die to have this “swacket” (get it, sweater + jacket = SF style genius):
Alnd take note, designers and DIY mavens, Harputs carries deadstock fabric (how green!) like this gorgeous sheared Harris Tweed from 1978:
Harputs’ “aesthetic is simple yet unconventional: intelligent pieces that can be insensibly worn. By pairing tailoring techniques and refined details with simple silhouettes each piece is complex, yet uncomplicated. Ultimately, we aim to make easy clothing that can be worn multiple ways, accentuate many different body types, and lasts over time.”
Sounds very SF to me. Go visit. If you’re not in the City, check out their online shop here.
Bonne chance, Harputs!
