Six Questions with Sheri Evans of Metier

by Tina on January 31, 2012

If you live in San Francisco and love to shop, then chances are you’ve been to downtown boutique Metier. And if you don’t live in SF, or do and don’t get out much, you can still shop at Metier. More on that in a second. They stock a ridiculously gorgeous collection of estate jewelry, as well as collections from cult favorite Isabel Marant, handbag genius Jerome Dreyfuss, Raquel Allegra, Rag & Bone, Vanessa Bruno, Alexander Wang and many more. One customer  coined their selections as “Modern with a vintage edge.” But they’re so much more. Metier is that super cool, way-too-nice-it’s-hard-to-believe girl everyone wants to be friends with. And when it comes to clothing boutiques, Metier has some serious tenure. Having just celebrated an impressive 20 years in business, they’re one of the oldest boutiques in SF, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see why. Proving that great things come to those who wait, after years as a strictly brick-and-mortar outpost, Metier has ventured online. And their site is really, really good. Well-styled images meet beautifully-curated items meet a clean, easy-to-shop interface. All you could ever ask for really.

And here’s the kicker: Owner Sheri Evans (pictured right below) was kind enough to answer six of our questions!
Warning: You may love Metier even more after reading this.
