Best Of Atlanta 2010 Consumer Culture Large


Consumer Culture

Once upon a hapless time, sculpted blond bouffants were the choice coiffeur in our city, and trendy Atlantans sported pink, popped-collar polos. Boy, have we come far!

Our favorite shops this year are stylish spots that transcend clichés. Many of our picks also keep the misers in mind — the dirt-cheap Axiom Salon for Men and the surprisingly reasonable Fab'rik boutique — with a nod to the high rollers, too — the elegant furniture showroom at Bungalow Classic and gorgeous new threads from Ann Mashburn.

We've also trained an eye on the work of local artisans and craftspeople: the charming letterpressed invitations at Bumblebee Press, the artful arrangements at Adaptation Floral Designs, and the gorgeously rendered sleeves of ink at Only You Tattoo. Whether you have a few grand to splurge or just a few bucks, you don't need any excuse to submerge yourself in our Consumer Culture.

At long last, ANN MASHBURN, wife to Esquire's best-dressed Sid and a style icon in her own right, opened her eponymously named boutique alongside her husband's shop this summer. The fairer Mashburn, who has her own impressive history with glossy fashion mags, having been an editor at Glamour and an assistant to Vogue fashion editor Polly Mellen, offers a feminine take on the classically crisp and masculine duds that made her hubby famous. Alongside high-end staples from designers such as Jack Rogers, Kendall Conrad and Roberta Freymann are Ann Mashburn's own creations, including a line of shirtdresses destined to become must-haves. Men, take note: This is where you come to splurge on and impress your lady. 1198 Howell Mill Road. 404-350-7132. www.annmashburn.com. less...
