To celebrate the recent launch of online shopping at wilkesbashford.com, we asked the man himself, style arbiter Wilkes Bashford, to tell us what fall fashion trends are hot at his eponymous luxury clothing store that launched in 1966 and is now part of the Mitchell Family of Stores.
We always love sauntering into Wilkes Bashford, just off Union Square, in downtown San Francisco. (There’s also an outpost in Palo Alto’s Stanford Shopping Center.) Boasting seven floors of sheer luxury in a townhouse-like setting and the most knowledgeable style advisors around—some of whom have many been with Bashford for more than three decades—Wilkes Bashford is where you can do one-stop shopping without sacrificing selection of designer labels.
Now that online shopping is available, it’s comforting to know that the same style advisors who can help men and women put together a haute look in person offer the same personalized service online. At wilkesbashford.com, style advisors can assist you whether you’re working on a new look or with pieces you own. They’ll review your selections online and make recommendations to help you define your personal style—and build a well thought-out wardrobe.
The website even includes personal information about the style advisors so you can see how long they’ve been with the company and find out interesting tidbits about them. For example, owner Tyler Mitchell’s favorite quote about style is this from Karl Lagerfeld: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”
We couldn’t agree more. You won’t find any sweatpants amongst the haute fashion trends at Wilkes Bashford. Here’s what you should be wearing instead:
A New Angle
Wow Them With White
The New Normal
