I didn’t fly to San Francisco last night specifically for this latte, but it certainly would have been reason enough. The Bay Area has been at the forefront of a coffee renaissance for the past few years, and I just love any excuse to experience this rich, boutique-gone-global culture that exists only here. As I write this letter at the famous Blue Bottle Coffee, my love for coffee—and San Fran—is reaching new, caffeinated heights.
This coming week on AHAlife, we’re going down under with a fashion pre-fall roundup spotlighting some of our favorite Aussie rising stars. We’ll also be introducing new pieces from Bijules by Jules Kim, whose aesthetic I admire tremendously—her subversive pieces are truly redefining jewelry. We’ll round out the week by showcasing the winner and six runners up of our #UpgradeYourLife Instagram competition in July, as selected by my dear friend and advisor Gilles Bensimon.
From fashion luminaries to photography legends to a smiling, artsy barista, soak up the talent that surrounds you!
