Last night, LA's indie fashion elite gathered at TenOverSix on Melrose to toast the debut of two highly-anticipated arrivals: Wren designer Melissa Coker’s ethereal, print-laden spring 2012 collection and the Los Angeles debut of Gia Coppola’s short film, What’s Up?. The short, which originally debuted during New York Fashion Week, follows “a young girl on a languid Los Angeles afternoon in search of something to fight her impending boredom,” according to the description. Gia—who is filmmaker and style icon Sofia Coppola's niece—held court at the soirée as the film played on loop throughout the evening.
The lovely Coker was as gracious a host as ever, sharing the duties with the boutique's owners and chic curators in crime, Kristen Lee and Brady Cunningham. (Fun fact: Cunningham is married to actor/Wes Anderson darling Jason Schwartzman, whose brother Robert Schwartzman created the soundtrack for the film.) Coker—red-lipped, bespeckled, and carrying a leopard print-inspired clutch from LA designer Clare Vivier (she revealed that her and Vivier's second collab is set to debut soon)—presented pieces from Wren's spring 2012 collection. Her favorite: the Feminine Shirt Dress in Printed Tie Dye, which is a gorgeous collared number that's clearly inspired by the designer's own flawless downtown gamine aesthetic.
Given that the film was creative directed by Lula Magazine's Leith Clark and the main character (played by Bella Zarember) is decked-out in Wren clothing and Wren x Fallon jewelry, What's Up? is essentially a love song between all artsy parties involved. Stop by TenOverSix now to shop Wren's spring 2012 collection, as well as in-season pieces from the boutique's eponymous label, LA designer Jesse Camm, and 3.1 Phillip Lim.—Hanah Snavely
