Maiden Lane And The Fashion Cognoscenti

Maiden Lane is a brilliant star cluster of designer boutiques located within the Union Square fashion galaxy.  Prohibiting cars during shopping hours makes the pedestrian-friendly street  ideal for gazing upon the latest trends and sipping cappuccino at the outdoor Mocca cafe.  

While Maiden Lane may have once been part of San Francisco’s red-light district, it’s now the celestial stomping ground of the fashion cognoscenti.

Bound by decorative gates, Maiden Lane is distinguished by the boutiques of renowned designers whose style radiates from well-dressed windows.  Shiny gold accents and rich Fall colors add a little perkiness to your step as you enter the Tory Burch boutique, whereas the understated James Perse storefront draws you into their cool comfort zone with signature LA style.  





Heavenly scents wafting from Diptyque arouse your imagination with botanical fragrances, and Gucci’s attractive display of come-hither handbags is sure to tempt your fiscal fashion sense.

The AllSaints boutique on Maiden Lane has an interior design reminiscent of the Industrial Revolution.  Antique sewing machines and rows of large wooden bobbins bring to mind the heritage of textile manufacturing.

Fast forward the revolutionary spirit to 2013 and AllSaints has created an aesthetic that's decidedly urban.  The creative tension between the old ways and the new collections appeals to individuals who are up to the challenge of embracing the gritty, uncompromising side of their personality...the side that craves original ideas and substance.  





For the well-dressed and the well-informed, Maiden Lane in San Francisco exerts a gravitational pull that promises plenty of earthly delights for your fashion appetite.
