Just because it's summer doesn't mean it's not jacket season (our nights get get pretty chilly, no?), which is why it may be worth your while to swing by The Arrivals's first-ever LA pop-up. Now through Sunday, the NY-based direct-to-consumer brand is holding court at Platform in Culver City.
Founded by former architect Jeff Johnson and entrepreneurial pal Kal Vepuri, the label brings a City of Angels-friendly selection of its fashionable and functional outerwear ($185 to $885) usually only available online. Standouts include The Arrivals's signature Väder leather moto jacket in an LA-inspired poppy colorway (including a very exclusive embroidered style for sporting your hometown pride), lightweight sweaters, sleek bombers, weatherproof parkas, and more women's and men's styles.
That's not all: you can personalize your piece this Saturday from 2 to 6pm when Chaingang LA is offering custom stitching.
The Arrivals at Platform is open Friday, July 22nd and Saturday, July 23rd from 11am to 8pm and Sunday, July 24th from 11am to 6pm.
