The City by the Bay just got a big dose of dapper thanks to the latest addition to the Barneys family: Our newly revealed stand-alone men’s flagship located on Stockton Street. In honor of the new store, Golden State Warrior power forward Draymond Green teamed up with San Francisco Magazine to host a swanky soiree to show off the new space. The stylish set in attendance included the Getty family, NFL player Aldon Smith, and the magazine’s editor-in-chief, John Steinberg. And because we love a good party question, we took the opportunity to go Off Topic. Read on to find out what fashion face-offs guests would like to see, as well as what San Francisco hotspots should be topping your to-do list.

Draymond Green
Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green obliged a few fans with autographs.

The Window: With tonight’s basketball-leaning event and the NCAA tournament going on, if you were filling out a bracket for the fashion set, who’d you like to see go head-to-head in a fashion face-off?

Draymond Green: A fashion face-off I’d like to see would be designer Mike Amiri go against Kanye West. I prefer the cut of Amiri’s stuff, like the shotgun hoodies—it fits well. Kanye’s collection shares a similar look, but a lot of his pieces are oversized. For me and what I like, I think Amiri would win.

Vanessa Getty shows off her San Francisco hometown pride.

The Window: What’s your under-the-radar, go-to place in San Franciso?

Vanessa Getty: If I told you, it’d no longer be under the radar! But I suppose I can give away one secret: Brenda’s French Soul Food—it’s amazing and delicious, but kind of tucked away.

Who would you like to see go head-to-head in a fashion face-off?

VG: Karl Lagerfeld, definitely, against Donatella Versace. Smack down! Bet the Kaiser would take it.

Danny Fogarty, Tony Cornejo, and David Mohammadi show off spring ready-to-wear styles.

Barneys’ own Richard Canciamilla, VP/General Manager of your San Francisco flagship, along with John Totolis, VP/DMM of men’s tailored clothing and furnishings.

The Window: Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco, where would say you left yours?

John Totolis: Greece. It’s in my DNA! It’s where my ancestors are from. It’s the best place to just relax, eat, and swim. It’s really clean living and great people.

Who would you like to see go head-to-head in a fashion face-off?

JT: I would definitely want to see Lapo Elkann of Italia Independent versus John Vizzone, the creative director of Cifonelli. Lapo steps out more and takes more chances, and no matter what he does, he always looks good. John’s a little more classic with his background at Ralph Lauren, but very polished. I think I might have to give this one to Lapo, though.

Joy Venturini Bianchi puts the new men’s store’s spiral staircase to full effect.

The Window: Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco, where would say you left yours?

Joy Venturini Bianchi: New York. It’s who I really am when I’m in New York—my whole spirit is alive.

What’s your under-the-radar, go-to place in San Franciso?

JVB: My favorite is Helpers House of Couture, which serves people who are developmentally disabled. There are clothes and jewelry ranging from $10 to $30,000 and goes to an amazing cause.

The Window: Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco, where would say you left yours?

Lauren Murrow: Probably Brooklyn. I moved here from New York, and there are actually a lot of similarities between Brooklyn and San Francisco, which made the transition that much easier.

DJ Von set the tone for the evening with signature mixes.

The Window: What’s your under-the-radar, go-to place that you only know about if you live here?

DJ Von: That’s a tough one, with as much as the city has changed in recent years. Bu there’s 111 Minna, which was an art gallery first and foremost, but it then became a nightclub, and then a café. It’s a really cool gallery that serves great coffee.
