MELROSE—It's fair to say that garments and accessories by San Francisco-based fashion house Five and Diamond make a strong statement. The brand has been churning out alternative gear for rock stars, punk enthusiasts, and other rebellious fashionistas since 2007, but now the gang finally brings their revolutionary style directly to Los Angeles with a new storefront at 7311 Melrose Avenue. This Saturday the new boutique celebrates in true badass fashion with an in-store Headgear Art Show from 7pm to midnight. For the first two hours, catch the models' live FX makeup application by students from Cinema Makeup School, followed by the showing of 30 artist's avant garde headpieces. Admission is totally free and valet parking will be available.
HISTORIC CORE—As we told you earlier this week, DTLA's ShopWalk returns this weekend to offer you some cool retail therapy—and yes, also a few drinks. Beginning this Sunday and returning each week through the month of August, the event features discounts and in-store events, and this time around the addition of UpMarket's pop-up. Between Spring and Main along 5th Street, you'll find rad local brands like Garrett Leight and Pale Violet showing off their goods as Si Paletas offers small-batch frozen treats and DJ Reid Bode provides the tunes. Shop and day-drink while you explore this magical neighborhood at the 12-7pm event.
HOLLYWOOD—Visual artist and all-around cool girl Kristine Lopez takes over Space 15 Twenty (1520 N Cahuenga Boulevard) with a curated pop-up this Sunday afternoon. From 11am-4pm, shop the hip vendors' list of wares including holistic goods by Yoke, hand-painted pots and plants from Pop Up Greens, and conscious clothing from Bon George. Suja will also be on-hand to keep you nourished with organic, cold-pressed juices. This one-day modern marketplace has no admission fee and is open to the public.
