Space 15Twenty's hall of pop-ups has been transformed once again, this time in honor of Mirror / Dash, Kim Gordon's new line for Urban Outfitters. The X-Girl founder and Sonic Youth bassist has curated an eclectic selection of art and music books, makeup, records, womenswear and accessories, all to be showcased with her own range of cropped jackets, oversized tees and neat little elastic-waisted skirts.
We were impressed by Gordon's choice of designers, which aren't widely represented elsewhere in LA (No. 6 Vintage, Martin, Cosmic Wonder), along with the corner dedicated to records and refurbished vintage electronics from Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace Records. Most surprising selection? Matt Bernson sandals, simply because we wouldn't have pictured Gordon as a metallic gladiator kind of girl.
But the main draw definitely has to be the rack of pieces from Gordon's personal Daryl K collection, which she's selling to benefit Community Resources for People with Autism. Unlike the sales of Erin Wasson and Rachel Zoe before her, these aren't really the sort of things you'd wear out for Sunday brunch (think a faux-fur rugby shirt and lots and lots of fluorescent vinyl), but they probably have far cooler stories behind them. They'll only be around today and Saturday, however, so it's worth heading down ASAP to snag your piece of rock history.
