Kim Hastreiter deftly curates the hip and the cool as co-editor and founder of indie magazine Paper. And with NYC as her playground, you know she knows what's good. So we've been feeling pretty awesome since Hastreiter revealed in an interview with Fashionista that she digs shopping in SF. One of her favorite haunts is Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC), home to extensive collections of Dries Van Noten and Comme des Garçons (just to name a couple). But the real gems at MAC (and we think the cherry-red bespectacled style maven would agree) are the in-house exclusives--like the Italian-made men's pants, perfectly cut to fit the masculine curves (yes, they have them, too) for a tailored fit.
Hastreiter was so inspired by her jaunt through the Bay that she started Paper's annual Super(Duper)Market in NYC, a weekend-long market that brings various cities' favorites to the heart of NYC. MAC and Bi-Rite Market (Hafstreiter swears by the olive oil) represented our fair city at the last market. Sure, to us these are our staples. But per Hastreiter, whether it's brand new or a classic, it doesn't matter--as long as it's the best.
