LA RETAILERS ARE REOPENING

Retailers across Los Angeles are gearing up for their re-opening, which we think is a bit premature, but we do understand that foot traffic and in-person commerce is the driving force in the infrastructure for a lot of these establishments. It’s hard to deny that no matter how far technology has advanced, it can never duplicate the physicality and experience of touching and trying on garments, especially when it comes to specialty items and luxury goods. But, if you’re still wary and feel that Whole Foods and Target is as deep into society you’re willing journey for the time being, yet are ready to shed your newly grown self-isolation body hair and buy some new threads to show off, we found this list of amazing online-sales that are going on right now.

WHAT WILL DINING BE LIKE POST COVID-19

Driving through the PCH and stopping by one of our favorite restaurants in Malibu, Malibu Farm, we walked up to the big wooden doors to only find a foldable table with a cash register on it, chalk menu board and a couple of masked workers servicing the visiting patron’s and beach-front locals. With the six feet distancing rule strongly enforced, you could place an order then make your way to the sand or take it home with you, which completely eliminates the ambience that MF is known for. It made us think, how will the dining experience be post Covid-19? For the fortunate establishments that survive the financial impact that the hospitality industry has clearly taken, how will they innovate a new safety structure that aligns with an atmosphere that welcomes close proximity, shared moments and togetherness? It will be interesting to see the inevitable changes that are surely coming.

DAN COLEN ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

The Gagosian gallery will be unveiling this weeks artist spotlight featuring, Dan Colen. Available for viewing on Friday with a single artwork by the artist made available for purchasing for forty-eight hours. If you only remember a young Colen as being part of the 90’s to early 2000’s New York trio with equally wild members, Ryan McGinley and Dash Snow, you’d be pleasantly surprised to see his mature farming side. You can also head over to Dover Street Market to browse his re-worked vintage single stitched shirts and 50/50 sweatshirts.

INTRODUCING, HARLEY

With all of this time currently being spent inside, we figured this would be the perfect opportunity to lend some of our attention to a pup that is in dire need of love and shelter. We fostered this six-month-old little guy from Hollywood Huskies a couple of weeks ago and let me tell you, it was love at first sight. He was scared, looked neglected and mistreated and we just knew that we had to give him the love that he deserves. The first couple of nights were pretty rough (ruff?) which is to be expected since he was in a new surrounding but now he’s completely like a part of the family. The kisses, the waiting at the door, the car rides, the sitting next to the office chairs as we work to him letting me pick him up like a baby – I honestly don’t know if it is even comprehendible to give him back at this point. All I can do is hope that Harley goes (or stays) exactly where he’s meant to be.
