Dsquared2 Major Rager, COS Launch Dinner at Chateau

It was a big night in LA for fashion  … Dsquared2 opened on Rodeo Drive (this is their first boutique in the US, and is in the old Etro) and had a big after-party! Also last night … COS, a division of H&M, (opens Thursday in the old Banana Republic space at 357 N. Beverly Drive next to William Sonoma) had a dinner at Chateau Marmont where several key bloggers are staying and have an in-store event today. Lisa Eisner had a little fete at the Tom Ford store on Rodeo Drive last night for her new jewelry collection made exclusively for Tom Ford. Also of note, Roger Daltrey (The Who) performed at the Soho House.

APC LA’s Rendez-Vous

Bienvenue à Los Angeles A.P.C!

This Thursday, cult French brand APC, known for it’s cooler than cool minimalistic design, had its opening party for the new 2,500 sq foot location.  Having moved across the street, this new APC location is the only store to have entrances on both Melrose Place and Melrose Avenue. This stunning shop could not be more within the APC aesthetic. Formerly an antique store, the designers made use of the 20 foot ceilings and added an all glass rooftop.  This spacious settings, with all blonde wood and large farmed windows, screams simple yet sophisticated and oh so chic. We especially love the outdoor garden that stays in theme with french neighbor, Isabel Marant.
