LOVA Pop-Up Opens

Admittedly, the D-list spectacle that is this city's Fashion Week is less than enthusing—except, of course, for the influx of models—but a concurrent four-day shop peddling a dashing new men's line of fitted blazers and button-ups sounds about right.

411: Mar 13-16, noon-7pm inside Revolve, 8452 Melrose Ave (E. of La Cienega, behind Taste), West Hollywood

WEDNESDAY TASTE

The Tastemaker Gallery Opens

Rare is the occasion to set foot in the Hollywood & Highland complex, but paying tribute to your pioneering comrades atop the fields of architecture, design and more—curated by media maven Laurie Pike—could be an exception.
