The silver lining of this ongoing drought is that it's actually warm enough to wear swimwear in San Francisco. The timing couldn't be better for a bikini collaboration between two Outer Sunset surf brands, San Franpsycho and Kinda Fancy. The resulting two piece features a psychedelic palm tree print and a reversible top that means you get two suits in one.
This looks like the kind of suit that wears equally as well poolside or on a surfboard in tropical water. To be sure that it fits your body right, drop by the official launch party this Saturday, March 28th at the Phoenix Hotel. From 12–5pm, local acts Girls n' Boomboxes, Ryan Lucero, and 8th Grader will keep the music coming poolside. Drinks and bites will circulate while you get first dibs at the limited-run bikini, (in addition to other styles from the two brands' respective collections). Buy tickets to the (21+) pool fun here, or pay $10 at the door. Space and bikinis are limited, so start planning your weekend now.
