Storecaster: Retail Arrivals (exist) - 0

Lauren Murrow | February 4, 2013 | Story

Haven’t heard of Greg Chait yet? You will now, thanks to Anna Wintour and her cohorts. Chait, the designer behind knitwear label the Elder Statesman, won the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund—an annual prize bestowing $300,000 on one rising designer. On February 4, a dozen spring 2013 collection pieces from Chait and the nine other finalists (like Wes Gordon, above) will be available at Nordstrom’s pop-up shop (865 Market St., Near 5th St., 415-243-8500).

Prabal Gurung releases his “love- inspired” collection for Target (789 Mission St., Near 4th St., 415-343-6272) on February 10. Thankfully, it’s devoid of cutesy hearts, opting instead for color-block brights, painterly stripes, and graphic florals ($13–$200).

Dijital Fix—the indie gadget-geek’s answer to best buy—brings a trove of audio equipment and electronics to the Mission (820 Valencia St., Near 19th St., 415-666-2256). The living room–like setup includes a photo booth, a listening room modeled after a ’70s-era recording studio, and a backlit headphone wall.

California-based womenswear label Joie opens its first San Francisco store on January 26 (2116 Fillmore St., Near California St., 415-400-0367), bestowing a versatile range of silk blouses, printed dresses, and nautical knits on our layer-loving city.
