SILVERLAKE—Jewelry and perfume are gift options for mom (or whoever you are celebrating!) that will never go out of style. And when those particular gifts are from Silverlake's cool, contemporary lifestyle boutique Mohawk General Store (4011 West Sunset Blvd), they're sure to please anyone who shares our love of modern luxe. That said, you can check out some of the shop's latest options of each with a trunk show Wednesday from 6-9pm. Designers of handcrafted jewelry line Gabriela Artigas and founders of fragrance brand Regime des Fleurs will be present for the event where attendees can sip champagne and explore the entire collection of elegantly minimal jewelry inspired by the designers' roots in Mexico City, and the sexy, sophisticated scents — both of which were created right here in Los Angeles.
