Style’d SF: Opal Pineapple Is The Bay Area’s Vintage Day Dream

It sounds like the plot line of a stylish gal pal chick flick; two girls working as waitresses together in the Castro become best friends through their love of vintage and fashion and start their own shop. Genevieve and Corina started their vintage eBay store Mintmall in the summer of 2006 and they haven’t looked back since.

Their curated aesthetic of oversized, draped, and minimalist silhouettes in natural fibers has brought them a following of loyal shoppers from around the world. Last month they launched their own line of handmade clothing and ceramics inspired by their love of vintage called Opal Pineapple. Their new store focuses on creating one of kind creations that blends their love for modern art and fashion with the curated aesthetic of Mintmall.

The girls are artists in their own right and Opal Pineapple is their way of giving their personal talents a solid platform to share with the beloved customers they already have from Mintmall.

The clothing for Opal Pineapple is hand made and designed by Genevieve. Every piece is created to reflect the quality and timeless style the girls look for in the vintage they shop for. She specifically uses vintage fabric made with natural fibers to create their self-described “avant-garde, minimalism with an effortless California vibe” style.

Corina hand makes the ceramic objects that vary from vases, plant holders and small sculptures. She is inspired by beauty found in nature and looks to replicate and incorporate its textures, patterns and forms in her pieces. Just like with all other aspects of the girl’s brands, Corina emphasizes her attention to quality and creating what will one day be a cherished heirlooms.
