Montreal Light

Montreal Light

Recently I had an opportunity to visit Montreal during the Mode & Design Fashion Festival where one of our brands, Eve Gravel, showed their fall collection. In the short time that I was there, I got a feel for the luminescent city.

Summer Pop-up w/ Textilehaus

Summer Pop-up w/ Textilehaus

Textilehaus summer pop-up

Visit the shop Saturday, July 21 from 12p-3p for our final pop-up of the season! 

Textilehaus is founded by Anastasiya Yatsuk. Her appreciation for minimalist clothing was developed at a young age through shopping rules set by her mother. In Russia, she was allowed to buy clothing twice a year and had to create samples of the garments she desired in order to learn the time and skill required to make each piece. These lessons taught her to choose versatile pieces that would compliment her existing wardrobe. She also spent summer afternoons at the Ukrainian military warehouse where her grandmother worked. Playing with utilitarian uniforms reinforced her fondness and respect for simple, thoughtful design. 

Her current collection is made in San Francisco, CA using Japanese cotton.

Vineyard Days

Vineyard Days

One of the best parts about living in the Bay Area is the proximity to so many activities and beauty. Yes I like wine, but I love the rows of grapes, bright sunshine, the green landscape, and sitting at a picnic table eating snacks and drinking wine with friends. Some of my favorite wineries are Frog's Leap, Gundlach Bundschu, Lambert Bridge, and Dry Creek Vineyard. If heading to Lambert Bridge or Dry Creek Vineyard don't forget to stop off at Dry Creek General store for tasty snacks.

2018 Spring Playlist

2018 Spring Playlist

It's already Spring! This season we put together a mix of good grooves and female power to brighten these cloudy and not quite warm enough days. Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band leads with their psychedelic song, "Where There’s Woman". Kleenex-Lilliput's, an all-woman Swiss band, hit the repetition hard with their post-punk anthem "DC-10". Another notable track is a recently re-issued disco-infused pop track "You've got a woman" by the Dutch band Lion. Another favorite of mine, we finish off with an underground 80's pop vibe from Mark Renner with "Saints and Sages". We hope you enjoy!

Spring Pop-up w/Lacson Ravello

Spring Pop-up w/Lacson Ravello

We are hosting San Francisco designer, Lacson Ravello on May 12 from 12pm-3pm! Come meet the designer and check out their newest collection full of classic stripes, bold red florals, and feminine details. We will be pre-celebrating Mother's Day at the Pop-up with mimosas and mini floral giveaways. We hope to see you there! 

 

Lacson Ravello Pop-up

From the designer:

The story of LACSON RAVELLO begins with strong family roots in the garment industry. Kristina Lacson McConnico was born to Filipino parents and descended from a long line of dressmakers and fashion designers—grandmothers, aunts, and cousins. Upon establishing her own brand, she incorporated her surname, Lacson, and her grandmother’s maiden name, Ravello. For her, this family name captures the heritage and values that define her clothing line—a tradition of strong craftsmanship and quality materials, combined with a modern and design-driven approach.

Originally from St. Louis, Kristina knew at a young age that she wanted to follow her family’s path in the fashion world. A skilled visual artist during her teenage years, she moved to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art & Design. Early exposure to leaders and icons in the fashion industry had a profound influence on her evolution as a designer.

After college, she relocated to San Francisco and worked for companies such as Gap Inc., Bebe, and the Gymboree Corporation—in addition to building her expertise as a design consultant for smaller fashion labels and startups. Her two decades of industry experience have led her around the world numerous times, from production facilities in Asia to buying and research trips in Europe and all over the U.S. This global perspective followed Kristina as she created the LACSON RAVELLO brand. Her dedication to being a citizen of the world while keeping a relaxed California sensibility continues to inform her life and her work.

Kristina currently lives in Oakland with her husband John and their cats Coco and Clementine. She is also a breast cancer survivor and thriver.

Mood [ April ]

Mood [ April ]

Here at Dandelion Post, we are constantly finding inspiration around our beloved city of Oakland - whether it be the local architecture, vibrant street art, a sidewalk vendor's floral arrangement or just a good old fashion sunset. In an effort to hold on to and share these moments, we have taken to translating them into wearable outfits -- just for you!

For our first go, we stuck close to home. If you have popped into our store location, I am sure you stopped to admire the mural on the side of our building done by incredible local artist, Lena Gustafson. This mural has us feeling the coolness of the navy as it coincides with the vibrant pops of color; of finding or making your own paradise while remaining in a city dwelling.
