Bay Area fashion icon Susan Foslein, owner of this namesake clothing boutique in Presidio Heights, is well-regarded by both devoted customers and the world’s top echelon of designers. The shop’s stark white walls and dark floors focus attention on the mannequins draped with avant-garde fashions, mostly from Europe and Japan. Susan was the first to carry Junya Watanabe outside of Paris and offers lines such as Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, and Lanvin. The inventory is comprised mostly of modern classics and emphasizes architectural design. Susan also stocks a small selection of jewelry by Taher Chemirik.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
