At Sutter Larkin, my vision is simple: to design for people who love to dress uniquely and have fun while doing it. It’s why each piece is truly one-of-a-kind with its own motif, threaded together by the philosophy of Scandinavian design and influence of eclectic materials architect, Stephen Dynia.
As thoughts of great design swirl around in my head every day, I strive to create work that’s beautiful, functional and adds value to our lives. I do this by giving each garment its own personality through mixing colors, textures and materials, unexpectedly and often boldly.
As part of my “thoughtful design” practices and the love of this beautiful planet, I only work with responsibly purchased materials that are either rescued cast-offs or up-cycled vintage gems. I like to say that I take the unwanted and turn them into the wanted.
Sutter and Larkin are two streets in San Francisco that cross. On that corner I failed as a designer. 20 years later, on that same corner, I was discovered as a designer. That’s where I get the same of my line, Sutter Larkin.
