Gravel & Gold is practically a veteran merchant in the fast-changing Mission shopping landscape, and they're coming into their own with a full collection of clothing, accessories and bedding for spring. Their first full collection of Gravel & Gold Goods features a new print by Bay Area artist Rachel Kaye, and is hitting stores in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles this week. In addition to her new "noiz" print, also look for their signature boob-covered fabric (in the making above) on a top, a bag, and a pillow case. Everything is hand-printed and sewn in San Francisco, most of it by G&G's in-house tailor, Holly Samuelson.
No launch would be complete without a party—Gravel & Gold is throwing one at the shop (3266 21st Street in SF) tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20th from 6 to 8pm with live music, booze, and art by Kaye for sale. If you can't make the party and the Mission is not your hood, look for the new stuff at General Store, MAC, Conifer, and at Proof Lab in Mill Valley.
