Remix Your Spring Style

Every year Spring inspires new beginnings so why not start with a new wardrobe? This month Melange Mode's Ana Dahlman and interior designer Sarah Holland collaborated on a lifestyle shoot, where high-end fashion and interiors collide. All images were shot at The Arkitektura Showrooms: Cassina San Francisco. The showroom is a high-designed space with luxurious and timeless iconic furniture pieces. All images were photographed by Angela DeCenzo. Angela is based in San Francisco and is a regular contributor to national and local publications. Check out our Spring 2014 looks below in the ultimate dream closet!

The Cappelini Container Closet System design is all about versatility. This simple design solution can be customized with high-end finishes and storage options, making it the dream closet. Closets are becoming more of a focal point in a room and this design quality is gaining popularity fast.

Pastel tones are on trend for Spring 2014, check out some of these haute hues. The fun, flirty tones mixed with some bolder colors adds some unexpected contrast to these finished looks. The pieces are by Reverie, from Melange Mode's Ronit Genik, and M Dot Design Studio, from designer Michelle Aquino who creates limited edition, handmade clothes in Los Angeles. The unique shoes on the left are by local SF shoe designer Martha Davis and were inspired by the Redwood Forrest.


Bring the heat to your Spring look this year with these edgy, chic downtown looks. Graphic prints paired with metallic accents and some bold colors make this collection the perfect storm, and we are not just referring to the lightning clutch by Reverie. These looks can be sleek for day or add the drama for a night out. San Francisco based fashion designer Melissa Fleis creates an effortless style. Her Whitewash collection mixes patterns and textures with different materials. Staple pieces are transcended by Melissa with the use of leather. The orange jacket masters a monchromatic look seamlessly.

Check out some of these key pieces. Melissa Fleis, Lucent Dress (yellow), Slip Vest (white), Metric Legging (black/white), Pop Leather Jacket (orange), Slate Jumper, and Cope Moto Jacket. We are also loving Reverie's eye catching fire inspired dress and metallic copper dress! All shoes are by Martha Davis.

Prints Please! Add some variety to your closet with these eccentric patterns by M Dot Design Studio. Floral prints have become such a year-round trend and we love the fun wrap dress that plays up this style. Other pieces not to miss are the Rope dress, black cut out silk dress, and the Blair dress in mint green. Next time we are in LA we have to visit Michelle's Studio!

Men's lifestyle fashion is all about having quintessential pieces from day to night and the Wingtip Store San Francisco has everything you need for your work meeting, date night, and weekend brunch plans. In this series of images, all men's pieces featured are available at the Wingtip Store San Francisco. Custom shirts by Wingtip and the classic custom sports coat by Wingtip paired with their silk pocket square, gives a crisp look for spring. Keep your iPad and files in this classic distressed leather portfolio by Moore & Giles. Break up your style with some textured suede loafers by Peter Millar or beige leather shoes, top shelf, by Michael Toschi. 

A classic black men's suit is the men's equivalent to a little black dress. Everyone needs one! Check out this stunning custom suit by Alfred Dunhill and black leather shoes by Saint Crispins. We love pairing this look with the black and white silk polka dot printed pocket square and black bow tie. All you need is a martini to complete the look. The custom shirts by Wingtip, along with colorful ties, make you forget all about your winter blues. You can always dress down these shirts with some dark denim on the weekend, and speaking of weekend plans, the Wolverine 1,000 Mile boots, top shelf, are the prefect distressed compliment to add some edge to your style. 

To end on a classic note, let's celebrate spring with these classic men's pieces. Here are a few investment pieces every man should have. Custom navy pinstripe sports coat by Peter Millar with a crisp white shirt paired with brown leather loafers by Wingtip. This simple look can be your go to for a business lunch or a special dinner res with your sweetheart.
