FAIRFAX—Street art lovers (and anyone with a pair of eyes) are surely familiar with the work of Curtis Kulig, whose "Love Me" tags are visible all over the city. Topman has taken note of the artist's ability to capture an audience and teamed up with him to create a memorable debut collaboration. The British brand's storefront at The Grove (189 The Grove Drive) celebrates the line's launch this Thursday with a event that both introduces the public to the collection, and benefits Free Arts NYC, which provides high quality art programs to children in poverty. A portion of proceeds from the sales of full-priced items during the 6-8pm event will be donated to the cause, and the shopping center is offering complimentary valet parking—so basically win-win. Prospective attendees should send an RSVP to GiovanniCoppola@topman.com.
NEWPORT BEACH—Beautifully curated boutique A'maree's (2241 West Coast Highway) is gathering a very special group of local labels for an elegant open house event this Saturday from 2-6pm. Handcrafted leather sandal brand Beek, cashmere goods maker Denis Colomb, and luxe candle company Voyage et Cie are among the chic list of vendors for the high end shopping experience, where you'll want to make all your holiday gift purchases.
WEST HOLLYWOOD—Luxury scarf line Donni Charm is celebrating the holidays with a festive evening of drinks and treats, special season discounts, and on-site monogramming. The merriment takes place this Friday from 4-8pm at the brand's WeHo headquarters (618 1/2 Doheny Drive). Feel free to bring your friends—the more merrier, right? Just make sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
