WEST HOLLYWOOD—Get an exclusive first look at Nicole Miller's Spring 2016 collection during a trunk show at the designer's WeHo store (8633 W Sunset Boulevard). Better yet, the new collection will be available for pre-order, with select styles offered for immediate in-store purchase, and you'll even be able to get your hands on never before seen spring looks and one-of-a-kind pieces. Attendees can also enjoy a 15% discount at the event, slated for Saturday from 10am-6pm and Sunday from 12-6pm. Admission is open, but confirm your attendance with an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
VENICE—Dance, shop, and drink in the name of self love at a pre-Valentine's Day event with the cool kids of the pop-up world, Kinney Collective (582 Venice Boulevard). In the lineup? Funky fresh hand-hammered jewelry from Venice line She Rambles, Flores Lane's luscious soy candles and essential oils, Rebecca Mink's ultra-luxe collection of Italian-made vegan shoes, and spiritually reimagined sunnies by My Willows. Sip Moscow Mules, compliments of Double Cross Vodka, enter a raffle for a chance at some goodies, and take a break from the rigors of credit card-swiping to pamper yourself with a massage or tarot card reading. Join in the celebration on Friday from 4-10pm.
DOWNTOWN—Gear up, aficionados, for a serious new coffee bar in DTLA. Drop by the lobby of The Standard (550 S Flower Street) between 11am-3pm tomorrow and get a first taste at the Hermanos Coffee launch, spearheaded by industry vets Damon White and Wayne Rambharose. Sip a highly stylized brew from latte artist and barista Michael Breach and enjoy the poetry of Topacio Althaus while you take in the new vibes. The Standard will waive valet parking fees for 15 minutes if you only have time for a quick coffee run.
