Urban fashion has evolved, and as the sophistication level of urban fashion rises, Skunkfunk is not just keeping up—we’re leading the way
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2012
Skunkfunk fashion has always been what people call “fashion forward,” leading the way with perennial innovations in design, materials and fits. To celebrate the transition into spring this year, the eco-conscious clothier is hosting a party at the Mission District location of the San Francisco clothing store to unveil the Spring - Summer 2012 line on Saturday, March 17 from 5 to 9 pm.
The 302 Valencia Street boutique will host the main event, where models will show off some of the more glamorous pieces from the collection while mingling with guests. Skunkfunk invites everyone to come in and enjoy DJed music, adult beverages and a new art exhibit. Concurrently, the 1475 Haight Street store will host a smaller event.
Along with hot new additions to its men’s clothing line, this season’s women’s fashions by Skunkfunk include refreshed Skunkfunk classic designs, contemporary spins on ’60s-style silhouettes, skirts with playful variations on hemlines, and convertible dresses and skirts that are appropriate for work, then quickly convert to eye-catching cocktail attire.
“Urban fashion has evolved, and as the sophistication level of urban fashion rises, Skunkfunk is not just keeping up—we’re leading the way,” said Kyle Retzik, owner of Skunkfunk North America. “While our brand has always exemplified high-quality upscale urban fashion, the new Spring - Summer 2012 line clearly shows everything from material choices to design to craftsmanship has been elevated to a whole new level.”
Sean Santos, Skunkfunk’s Valencia Street Store Manager, says he is seeing that women are looking for a good investment in their wardrobes, including traditionally spring clothing that can be worn throughout the year. He also feels this year’s spring - summer line will appeal to a broader spectrum of women, as it includes choices ranging from edgy designs that make bold statements to more demure and sophisticated attire.
“There are options for both the fashion rebel, who wants to disassociate herself from mainstream fashion, and the woman who just wants to look beautiful in this collection,” said Santos. “I am really excited about a number of pieces, including our spring version of the ‘little black dress,’ which I simply call the ‘little white dress’; stylish faux leather jackets; and lightweight printed cardigans that are on the luxurious side of casual.”
Santos says that when women put on a dress, they feel dressed up—but most dresses can be fussy to put on and uncomfortable, which makes it nearly impossible for the woman to look her best.
“Women want to dress up, but they also want simplicity and comfort,” said Santos. “Skunkfunk is all of the above. Our dresses look great, feel great and go on easy like a pair of jeans.”
Skunkfunk offers urbanites eco-friendly fashion, including convertible clothing that can be instantly redesigned for different looks and occasions. The Spanish-born purveyor of fine clothing is applauded for its eco-friendly fabrics and ethical distribution practices that harmonize with the environment.
Skunkfunk works hard to bring positive change to three areas of the fashion industry: people, planet and prosperity. Textiles are carefully chosen based upon their impact to the environment, and include recycled polyester, organic cotton and Lyocell.
Polyester comes from crude oil, a natural scarce resource with a low renewability ratio. Recycled polyester is processed in a less energy intensive way than creating virgin fibers, and it’s a perfect option to give a second life to post-industrial remains or post-consumer plastic waste.
Organic Cotton is a natural fiber cultivated without the use of synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides or fertilizers, and is not genetically modified.
Lyocell is a light and silky textile made from regenerated cellulosic fiber that comes from eucalyptus wood pulp. The biodegradable fiber is extracted under a sustainable closed-loop process that saves energy.
