Shopping and style
The sister store of menswear purveyor Unionmade, Mill caters to a particular San Francisco archetype: The sort of woman who prefers her leather totes sans designer logo, who fetishizes indigo, and who favors wood soles over stilettos. The sunny, soothing store is Japanese inspired, all white walls, wood shelving, and deep blue accents. Though the clothes here aren't body-conscious—tunics, long knits, cropped trousers, midi skirts and dresses—they carry casually chic sex appeal. The assortment of labels skews particularly toward Japan and France, but mixes in stateside favorites like Billy Reid, Chance, Lauren Manoogian and Mociun. Defining characteristics on the racks are meticulous construction and luxurious materials, whether linen, raw silk, pima cotton, or alpaca. Don't miss the housewares at the register, including handcrafted ceramics, kitchenware and stationery.
