Local fashion blog SF Looks asked Rita about her style:

My inspiration are dark 80s movies like Rivers Edge starring Crispin Glover & Keanu Reeves, all the androgynous cool kids of the 90s mixing and matching fashion genres with effortlessly chic effect like Brian Molko.

Lower Haight t-shirt emporium DSF opens popup satellite shop on 24th Street

You know them for their famous I Can’t Afford to Love SF shirt, but you’ve probably never been to the shop because it’s in another neighborhood…

Well now’s your chance! (The popup is on 24th between Mission and Valencia, for a limited time.)

A new sneaker by Self Edge


Nice! Here’s the deal:

They’re comfortable, built very well, and the rubber/canvas/stitching quality is as good as it gets for a sneaker. The new Dessau sneakers are fully hand-made in Japan. They’re vulcanized at one of Japan’s last remaining factories still committed to this process and made from 100% cotton woven in Japan. But it’s only when you pick them up, or more importantly put them on your feet, that you’ll find what truly sets them apart. Feel that extra heft, that extra cushion. And the bar keeps rising…taped seams, metal eyelets and vents, double stitched stress points, full sponge insoles, reinforced heel and toe cups. A new gold standard for the classic sneaker.

Check them out here, or at the original Self Edge shop near 18th and Valencia.

(Despite wanting to support local business, as a lifelong Converse All-Star man, I probably won’t make the switch, but I think they look nice and the description is very well written.)

UPDATE: Kiya adds, “(and they’re not made in a sweatshop).” I guess that’s the main thing.
