Hermès Carré Club Lands in Los Angeles

On Wednesday, the Hermès Carré Club lands in Los Angeles for a private reception, followed by a four-day, open-to-the-public experience. Guests will be able to learn in-depth about the house’s silk scarves through interactive experiences with the artists.
From the reception desk, where visitors check in and receive their membership card, to each point of engagement with the carré, the dynamic one-story venue pays a multi-faceted, participatory tribute to the beloved silk square.
The aim of the Carré Club, no matter its size or city, is to generate a steady source of creative output aimed at a transgenerational audience — think artist demonstrations, café gatherings, curator visits and more, all running day into night. Conceived by Bali Barret, artistic director of the Hermès women’s collections, Hermès Carré Club debuted in New York, then traveled to Toronto and Singapore and will head to Milan later this month.
Divided into six modules, the journey begins with the “Click and Check,” meaning after guests check in and receive their card, their image is captured by 360-degree cameras in a photo booth.
They are then led to the Carré Studio, where artists will be live-demonstrating how they draw and paint the designs. Their palettes are set up alongside

Goat Enlists Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma to Help Build Brand Buzz

EXPRESS YOURSELF: Online sneaker reselling marketplace Goat has inked a deal to have Kyle Kuzma serve as the face of its brand.
The Los Angeles Lakers player, as part of the deal, will don various sneakers sourced from Goat throughout the season during and outside of games. The deal reflects a seizing of the NBA’s reversed course on a rule that had dictated what sneaker colors players could wear on the court. The rule change now allows for any color footwear during games.
For Goat, Kuzma marks the first time the company is spending to have an ambassador for the brand and follows a flurry of activity this year.
Goat has grown through its digital marketplace that lets people buy and sell sneakers authenticated by Goat.
In February, the company, which launched in 2015, merged with Flight Club, a sneaker consignment retailer with doors in Los Angeles and New York, effectively combining the worlds of physical retail and online for sneaker reselling. It also pulled in $ 60 million in additional funding this year, bringing its total capital raised to date to $ 97.6 million.
In the summer, the company said it hired Lizzie Francis as chief operating officer, the first for Goat. The executive joined the

Los Angeles City Council Votes to Ban the Sale of Fur by 2020

L.A. GOING FUR-FREE: Los Angeles is now the largest city in the U.S. to have approved the ban of the sale of fur by 2020.
The effort was led by City Council members Paul Koretz, Bob Blumenfield, and Mitch O’Farrell. The decision was made in an unanimous vote Tuesday by the Los Angeles City Council and is now pending the legalization by Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, according to a spokeswoman in Koretz’s office.
In a statement, Koretz said, “We are excited to bring to end a cruel and inhumane practice. LA has been a leader on humane issues and this is a great next step in that arena. We appreciate council member Bob Blumenfield and Marc Ching and his Animal Hope & Wellness organization, for their leadership on this issue. We think we’ve also been as reasonable as possible by accommodating the fur industry allowing the fur retailers to phase out their inventory. We are delighted by those in the fashion industry that are getting out in front of this including Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, Versace, Gucci and Burburry that have made commitments to remove fur from their line of products.

Colorado College Student to Bring Supreme Resale Marketplace to Los Angeles

BUSINESS-MINDED: Never underestimate the business savvy and passion of a Supreme fan. Take 20-year-old Zachary Dorf, who used to consistently camp outside Supreme’s New York store, while still in high school, just so he could get his hands on the latest drops.
That devotion grew a social media fan base that later evolved into a business bringing together vendors and consumers of Supreme and other coveted streetwear brands to buy and trade, called Solepreme Con.
Saturday, Dorf brings Solepreme to Los Angeles for the first time, on Cahuenga Boulevard, for five hours of buying, selling and trading of brands such as Supreme, Off-White, Gucci and Raf Simons.
Dorf, whose father owns the winery and music venue City Winery, estimates the West Coast show, totaling some 40 vendors, will draw attendees about on par with New York, which has been about 1,000 people. He’s charging $ 25 for general admission in addition to $ 119 for a single vendor table.
Back in his teens, the University of Colorado Boulder student, who is studying entrepreneurship, would typically be one of the first 10 customers inside the Supreme store on drop days. Aside from garnering Instagram followers through his dedication, Dorf would sometimes gain insider information on drops.

Ragdoll Los Angeles Keeps Business Diverse to Compete

Los Angeles label Ragdoll carved a niche for itself when founder Lisa Larson started her line as a direct-to-consumer, online business selling essentials for the European cool girl.
Today the four-year-old brand has a store on 3rd Street and is eyeing another, continues on a growth trajectory that saw a 40 percent rise in revenue from the prior year and has largely built a business via a stable of loyal influencers and immediates.
Ragdoll began working with Nordstrom earlier this year and is now in 10 of the retailer’s doors along with its online shop. Although Larson set out to build a direct-to-consumer business, she expanded into wholesale about a month in after being approached by retailers such as Fred Segal and Satine. The line’s wholesale business totals about 300 accounts.
“Our customer is quite a broad age group,” Larson said. “We have a younger, trendier girl, but we also have an older, more sophisticated woman who likes to look chic and be trendy but not too trendy. I definitely design for myself first and foremost because I’ve always been into basics. Before I started my line, I would get more excited if I found a great sweater than a crazy skirt to

Berluti’s Parisian world of leather goods has made its way to the Los Angeles market.
The Paris-based maker of shoes, accessories and apparel bowed its first boutique in the Los Angeles area, located in Beverly Hills on Brighton Way. This marks the company’s second stand-alone store in California after South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. The company also has a shop-in-shop store at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco.
“This emblematic Beverly Hills address is an affirmation of our presence in the U.S. and marks the opening of our fifth store in America,” said Berluti chief executive officer Antoine Arnault in a statement. “The innovative new concept pays homage to Los Angeles while remaining faithful to Berluti’s deep traditions in the art of leather and patina.”
The 1,100-square-foot space was designed with herringbone patterned wood floors, gray walls, onyx and lacquered fixtures and touches of bronze.
The Beverly Hills boutique, which held a soft opening this week, exclusively carries Berluti’s Playfield sneaker in natural lizard.
The company, founded in 1895 as a shoemaker, has since gone on to introduce leather goods in 2005 followed by apparel in 2011.

Five Four Opens Pop-up in Los Angeles

Five Four is dipping back into the brick-and-mortar game.
The online men’s wear retailer, which started out as a streetwear brand with multiple mall stores in California, has teamed with Alfred Coffee at 8428 Melrose Place in West Hollywood on a pop-up shop.
The temporary store celebrates the launch of Oshenta, Five Four’s new eyewear brand, and FiveFourMan.com, which will go live this fall. Five Four sells merchandise from each of its private labels on separate sites. FiveFourMan.com will bring all of these assortments together under one platform.
“We wanted to create a place where people could touch and feel and see the product,” said Andres Izquieta, who cofounded the business in 2002 with Dee Murthy. “It’s been a good experience to talk with the customers about product and show them our vision off-line.”
The 350-square-foot space, which will be open through September, carries fashion items from each of Five Four’s brands, which includes Five Four, its core line, New Republic, its footwear line designed by Mark McNairy, Grand AC, its activewear line, and now Oshenta, its eyewear collection. Izquieta said the pop-up is a traditional retail experience, but customers are able to see the full inventory from three in-store iPads from which they can order products.

HBO to Open ‘Ballers’ Pop-up in Los Angeles

To mark the season three premiere of HBO’s “Ballers” series, the network is opening a Los Angeles pop-up at 633 North La Brea Avenue.
They’ve tapped men’s wear brands including Roc96 x MadeWorn, Pyer Moss, Buscemi, Cazal and Hall of Fame to produce co-branded capsule collections.
The show’s costume designer, Tiffany Hasbourne, said the pop-up would bring the “‘Ballers’ aesthetic to life.”
“This is going to be the most action-packed and stylish season of ‘Ballers’ yet, so there was no other way to launch than with a fully-immersive experience to capture that energy and offer our audience the opportunity to shop the ‘Ballers’-inspired collection,” she said.
Roc96, which was started by Rocafella cofounder Kareem “Biggs” Burke, teamed up with MadeWorn on a distressed, cotton jersey T-shirt that pays homage to Jay-Z’s “Can I Live” song from Reasonable Doubt, his debut album that was released in 1996. The shirt is embroidered with a 3 Ball. They will also offer a MadeWorn bomber jacket.

For her first collection at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Yixi Chen invited her guests to board the C2H4 Space Tech to Mars. Chen, who started C2H4 in 2014, considers herself a chemist and wanted to design laboratory workwear for the year 2082.
“This is our vision of what clothes are going to look like in the future,” said Chen, who sells to retailers including Revolve and Wish.
Chen updated athletic and workwear pieces — anoraks, utility vests, lab coats, hooded sweatshirts and cargo pants — with pockets, straps and fasteners. Pieces, which came in black, white, a pastel blue and vivid yellow, were also covered with her brand name, which stands for ethylene, and “Zero Gravity,” which was the title of the collection.
She also presented her collaboration collection with Kappa, which is titled “Undecayable.” Chen took creative license with Kappa’s signature logo tape and wrapped it around sweatpants or attached it to hoods as if it was a drawstring.
Chen isn’t working from an entirely new playbook, but she has distinctive ideas, which help her collection stand out.

Bristol Los Angeles Men’s Spring 2018

Luke Tadashi and Tommy Nowels, who design Bristol Los Angeles, drew from early childhood fashion recollections for spring.

“My first fashion memories were going to the supermarket with my mother and looking at Slam magazine,” Tadashi said. “The magazine featured a mix of NBA and urban street culture and those Rocawear and Sean John ads really had an impact on me.”

 The homage to streetwear in the early 2000s translated into an array of updated denim tracksuits that featured boxy, elongated track jackets and baggy sweatpants with snap closures on the sides for that retro Adidas feel.
Skater-inspired oversize corduroy pants cut on the bias provided interesting textures and volumes while celebrating the early Aughts. The use of Cupro fabric in half-zip tops and shorts provided the feminine touch that is also part of Bristol’s DNA. 
The collection did a good job of identifying a core message for Bristol and moving streetwear beyond its too-long obsession with the Nineties. And that’s a welcome change.

Scott Lipps on Plans to Open Digital-Focused Los Angeles Agency

One Management founder Scott Lipps has set his sights on Los Angeles, having relocated to the West Coast to open a new company called Lipps.
Lipps, who has kept a stake in One Management, has been staffing up the digitally focused agency, which will represent models, celebrities and influencers and offer brand consulting and content development.

Ministry of Tomorrow Launches Vegan Lifestyle Magazine, Plans Pop-up Shops and Los Angeles Store

GREENER FIELDS: Keeping true to its eco-minded approach to fashion, Ministry of Tomorrow has launched a vegan lifestyle magazine called MOT Mag.
Looking to empower staffers and enlighten consumers has been the Los Angeles company’s goal from its inception, according to president and founder Julian Prolman. The content-rich read features articles such as a Vivienne Westwood profile, Pharrell Williams’ inspiration for sustainable fashion, and a piece about the digital deterioration of natural feminine beauty. MOT has created a base of 20 freelance writers and there are plans to add guest contributors who are thought leaders and social commentators, Prolman said. “We decided on publishing the magazine now in order to grow our brand in a more engaging way that builds a community and creates meaningful relationships with our target audience, as opposed to relating to them only on a transactional basis.”
Topics are chosen in different categories, based on how well they align with MOT’s brand values — sustainability, compassion and higher consciousness. Started in 2011, the company’s flagship project is in Nairobi, Kenya just outside of one of Africa’s largest slums, Kibera, where a facility has been built to sponsor professional artisan tailors.

Prince Charles’ Tailors, Turnbull & Asser, Kick Off Spring Events in Los Angeles

Turnbull & Asser, the British brand founded in 1885, has dressed celebrated women and men throughout history including Twiggy, Bianca Jagger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Katharine Hepburn, Winston Churchill, Duke Ellington, The Beatles and Sean Connery. The Jermyn Street shirtmaker is probably best known for providing shirts for Prince Charles and Prince William.
The brand’s Bespoke Master Steven Quin, whose official title is Royal Warrant Holder to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, will be coming Stateside this weekend to introduce Yankee customers to the art of bespoke. Quin was last in Los Angeles in November 2016, where he also held client appointments and hosted a stylist dinner. The heritage house once had a shop in Beverly Hills, which closed in 2013, and still has a shop in New York.

Turnbull & Asser Bespoke shirt fabrics. 

Quin’s tour kicks off Friday at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where he will be meeting with customers by appointment and one-on-one to go through the proper fitting and measurement process, and help them choose the best collar, cuff, fabric and pattern to purchase their own one-of-a-kind bespoke shirt.

Louis Tomlinson Arrested In Los Angeles After Incident With Paparazzo

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson was arrested after an altercation with a paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday night.

The male photographer was allegedly pushed to the floor and hit his head as Tomlinson and girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, collected their luggage, TMZ first reported. According to a lawyer for Tomlinson, Martin Singer, the paparazzo started it. 

“The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport this morning,” Singer said in a statement provided to The Huffington Post.

A few other people had also been harassing Calder, reportedly prompting her to retaliate. Tomlinson was placed under citizen’s arrest. 

The star was charged with misdemeanor battery and is due in court on March 29, according to People.

“This is not the first or last time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity,” Singer continued. “While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense.”

One Direction, which also features Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan, has been on hiatus for about a year.

Tom Ford Dresses Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams and ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Cast for Los Angeles Screening

Tom Ford scored another coup both onscreen and off, outfitting the cast of his film “Nocturnal Animals” for its Los Angeles screening on Friday night. Lead actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams arrived at the Hammer Museum in a navy Shelton suit and black cross-back dress, respectively, followed by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon and Armie Hammer, also suited up in Ford. Aussie actress Isla Fisher, who plays a fictional version of Adams in the film, and English thespian Andrea Riseborough, who plays a Los Angeles society hostess, also donned outfits by Ford, as did guests Amber Valletta, January Jones and Rita Ora.
The Los Angeles screening comes after the film made its world premiere in September at the Venice Film Festival, where Ford won the Silver Lion prize, followed by its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. In between, Ford also premiered his first see-now-buy-now collection during New York Fashion Week.
While Ford called his actors a “safety net” explaining, “when you have great actors you get great performances,” his cast was quick to sing his praises as a director.
“He’s honest, open, thoughtful and precise; he knows exactly what he wants and he’s got a very strong eye for

�Mi Raza Primero!” (My People First!): Nationalism, Identity, and Insurgency in the Chicano Movement in Los Angeles, 1966-1978

�Mi Raza Primero!” (My People First!): Nationalism, Identity, and Insurgency in the Chicano Movement in Los Angeles, 1966-1978


�Mi Raza Primero! is the first book to examine the Chicano movement’s development in one locale-in this case Los Angeles, home of the largest population of people of Mexican descent outside of Mexico City. Ernesto Ch�vez focuses on four organizations that constituted the heart of the movement: The Brown Berets, the Chicano Moratorium Committee, La Raza Unida Party, and the Centro de Acci�n Social Aut�nomo, commonly known as CASA. Ch�vez examines and chronicles the ideas and tactics of the insurgency’s leaders and their followers who, while differing in their goals and tactics, nonetheless came together as Chicanos and reformers.Deftly combining personal recollection and interviews of movement participants with an array of archival, newspaper, and secondary sources, Ch�vez provides an absorbing account of the events that constituted the Los Angeles-based Chicano movement. At the same time he offers insights into the emergence and the fate of the movement elsewhere. He presents a critical analysis of the concept of Chicano nationalism, an idea shared by all leaders of the insurgency, and places it within a larger global and comparative framework. Examining such variables as gender, class, age, and power relationships, this book offers a sophisticated consideration of how ethnic nationalism and identity functioned in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s.

Scotch & Soda to Open Additional Stores in New York and Los Angeles

Scotch & Soda is extending its U.S. retail presence.
The Amsterdam-based casual sportswear brand opened a Beverly Hills location this month and will open a Williamsburg, Brooklyn, unit in November.
The Beverly Hills location will be Scotch & Soda’s second Los Angeles shop — it has a store in Venice Beach. The 1,500-square-foot space at 365 North Beverly Drive carries both the men’s and women’s collections. The store features Scotch & Soda’s interior design signatures — brass fittings, glass cabinets and wooden herringbone flooring — with additions including a wall adorned with hanging plants and a facade made from handmade Moroccan tiles.
The Williamsburg store joins Scotch & Soda’s three New York City boutiques. The retailer opened a Greenwich Village shop in May. The 1,800-square-foot Williamsburg unit will be located at 240-242 Bedford Avenue and also carry both the men’s and women’s assortments. The store, which is housed in a former industrial factory hall, will boast high ceilings along with concrete and steel details.
In 2014, the brand recruited Ari Hoffman, previously of Gant and Benetton, to serve as chief executive officer of its U.S. operations. Hoffman was tasked with further developing the retailer’s U.S. business. Scotch & Soda has more than 150 stores

Back-to-School Style: New York City vs. Los Angeles

We had a feeling that teenagers who live on opposite coasts might just rock a slightly different back-to-school style. So we talked to 14 high school students — seven in New York City and seven in Los Angeles — about their overall approach to fashion, where they shop and what they plan to wear when they return to the classroom in the coming weeks. And then we dressed them in an outfit of their choosing from a selection curated by our stylists on both coasts and photographed them on the streets of Williamsburg, N.Y., and West L.A.
A touch of downtown cool — and in some cases, a bit of preppy polish — and always casual. That was the consensus of the teens in the greater New York City area when asked to describe their respective styles at the Williamsburg photo shoot. Ranging in age from 15 to 18, they showed up in their own outfits — the boys in khakis and polos, the girls in a mix of skinny jeans or shorts with T-shirts and dresses — before being styled in b-t-s looks that suited their fashion preferences.
The students attend a mix of public, private and performing arts high schools.

Bloomingdale’s Celebrates Style Icons in Los Angeles

LA LA LAND: After a brutal winter on the East Coast, Bloomingdale’s executives enjoyed a stylish spring break in Los Angeles. Following last fall’s style icons-themed marketing campaign that featured seven New Yorkers — including Eidos creative director Antonio Ciongoli and restaurateur Michael Chernow, as well as commentary by blogger Michael Williams from A Continuous Lean — the executives celebrated the digital initiative’s L.A. edition on Thursday night with Departures magazine.
“I always appreciated L.A. style, especially casual sportswear,” said Kevin Harter, vice president for men’s fashion direction at Bloomingdale’s. “Guys out here have a good take on individual style. We came in and did some research and found seven guys that were diverse, with different ages and different looks.”
Those diverse men included Toms founder Blake Mycoskie, art curator Franklin Sirmans, stylist Johnny Wujek, actor Manish Dayal, chef Roy Choi, eyewear designer Garrett Leight and TV production head Tom Leach.
After a shopping event at the Bloomingdale’s store in Beverly Center, where Nylon magazine cofounders Marvin and Jaclynn Jarrett dropped by, the party moved to the Palm restaurant in Beverly Hills. Still, the icons didn’t rest on their laurels. Wujek took a break from prepping Katy Perry’s wardrobe for her forthcoming concert

A Conversation with Chris Davies, Founder, “Photo Independent: The International Exposition of Contemporary Photography”, Los Angeles

Chris Davies is the President of Fabrik Media, a Los Angeles-based publishing and marketing agency. Concerned by the art fair under-representation of otherwise talented photographers, he founded “Photo Independent: The International Exposition of Contemporary Photography”, held this year from April 25th to the 27th at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.

The exhibition, the first of its kind in Los Angeles, features the work of 70 photographers from around the world. The Selection Committee included Daniel Cornell, Palm Springs Art Museum, Graham Howe, curator, photo-historian, and artist, Sarah Lee, curator and gallerist, and Eve Schillo Curatorial Assistant at the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at LACMA. The exhibition also includes a Guest of Honor, Andy Summers, photographer and member of “The Police”; a Special Exhibitions section; and a series of talks, “The Dialogue,” meant to deepen one’s knowledge of contemporary photography.

JS: Staging the show in a movie studio was, to put it mildly, inspired. How did you come up with that?

CD: I’ve had the idea for this kind of fair for several years now, but wasn’t sure where to stage it (pardon the pun). Then once I saw Paris Photo last year at Paramount Studios, it dawned on me that Raleigh Studios would be the perfect venue and partner for this type of fair. I’ve been on the lot many, many times and loved the feeling of Raleigh Studios.

JS: What was your inspiration for the show? Was there an aha-moment or was it just a gnawing impression that the medium was given short shrift?

CD: Actually, not just the medium, but artists are being given a short shrift. The art fair system is such that if you’re not a gallery or part of a gallery’s stable of artists you cannot exhibit your work at traditional art fairs. I’ve been working with artists for over 20 years as publisher and marketing consultant, and have had many discussions with artists regarding art fairs and their inability to exhibit there because they don’t have a gallery representing them or their dealer that does represent them can’t bring all their artists to the fair. And as mentioned earlier this idea had been percolating for a while.

JS: Why do you think photography is underrepresented at art fairs? Is it cyclical, that is, is it because at the moment the pendulum of art swings more towards installations and painting and less towards photography? Or do you think there is something else at work here?

CD: For a long time there has been a prejudice against photography in the art world. There are still some folk that tell me that painting is art, and photography is not, because there is more than one print struck. These people do not seem to understand the changing reality of our contemporary culture. Photography is the incendiary art form of our time. Photography, Cinema, video – it has permeated our culture to the point where I sometimes wonder really, is there any other art that comes before a camera.

I am being a tad hyperbolic here, but really it’s about time that those among us who practice the art of photography and have raised the bar on the medium, should now be shown and acknowledged as the amazing artists that they are.

JS: What kind of support, especially initially, did you have from the Los Angeles art community?

CD: I have had tremendous support from the Los Angeles art community. Especially from other art fairs here in LA, specifically Photo LA and the Los Angeles Art Show, both mainstays in January’s fair season. Local organizations such as the Los Angeles Art Association, Art Weekend LA, Create:Fixate, and many other such organizations have been tremendously supportive. Not to mention the artists themselves. They are excited about what we have created.

JS: What was the Selection Committee’s mandate in choosing the work?

CD: They were trying to choose work that was both traditional and unconventional.

We wanted to show work that demonstrated both technical proficiency and creative choices that were fresh and offbeat.

JS: Who chose the contributors in the Special Exhibitions segment of the fair?

CD: These exhibitions were chosen by me. I wanted to showcase Andy Summers, not because of who he is and known for, but for who he is as a photographer. He is a great photographer who has not been given the recognition he deserves because of where he came from.

The AX3 winners are breathtaking adventurers; there are some wonderful new talents here and I wanted the world to see them. The AX3 exhibition came from a photography competition Fabrik we ran last year, and I felt this would be a great venue to showcase this talent from all levels of photography — professionals, non-professionals, students and Mobile Photographers.

JS: You’ve set up an impressive educational program. How important is education to the fair itself and to photography in general?

CD: It’s usually a component of most art fairs, and ours as well. Photography is dynamic, it mirrors technology-driven culture that we live in, and its important to me to have the fair be a conduit of information, to communicate the new modalities in the medium and maybe to be a catalyst for the pioneers among us.

JS: What were your biggest challenges in staging the event?

CD: Getting the word out, and establishing a measure of trust so that artists would feel excited about the potential a showing here would give to their careers and at the same time I wanted the artists to feel a measure of safety coming here to Los Angeles.

JS: Is there anything you will do different next year?

CD: Start earlier.

JS: A scant weekend is a very brief amount of time. Especially if the weather turns sour. Will future Photo Independents also run that short?

CD: We will wait and see.

JS: What do you want to be peoples’ walkaway impression from the show?

CD: I want people to be bowled over. Great art makes you change the way you think about the world, change the way you see. I want people to dream about a work that they saw here and think about life in a fresh new way. That is what I feel when I see some of the work here.

JS: How will you determine whether the event has been a success?

CD: The level of enthusiasm among collectors and artists opening night was gratifying. And it was reflected in sales. There are so many artists who have sacrificed alot, to print their work and come to Los Angeles, in the hope that their work would be appreciated… and they are selling. That is what its all about, really, isn’t it?

JS: What can we look forward to in next year’s installment?

CD: I’m hopeful that we will include more of an international contingency in next year’s fair and add to our programming for both artists and photography collectors.

The exhibit is being called #IAMSORRY, a collaboration with Finnish performance artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö and “meta-modernist pioneer” Luke Turner.

Jay Shells Posts Famous Rap Quotes Around Los Angeles In Clever Street Art Project

Get excited, California. Because artist Jay Shells has taken to Los Angeles with his clever guerrilla street sign installation, “Rap Quotes.”

New York art blog ANIMAL followed Shells as he cruised along the palm tree-lined streets of the Pacific coast city, placing his bright orange signs along the way. The declarations display quotes from famous hip hop artists like Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Warren G, and Notorious B.I.G., and are appropriately placed in the exact location the lyric calls out.

Take, for example, Warren G’s quote, “So I hooks a left on 2-1 and Lewis, some brothers shooting dice so I said ‘let’s do this,'” which can be seen on the corner of Lewis and 21st. Or Xzibit’s line, “Down La Cienega to bust a left on Venice where you can find me and mine,” which can of course be found on the corner of La Cienega and Venice.

The project aims to celebrate the roots of some of these artists as well as the cities that produce them. Shells previously took “Rap Quotes” to New York City, so we’re anxious to see which locale gets “signed” next. Feel free to speculate in the comments.

This Is What Los Angeles Could Look Like In 2033

Outsiders stereotype Los Angeles as car-addicted, polluted and lacking in public transit. But the City of Angels has undergone major changes over the past few decades.

LA is moving toward a greener future, friendlier to pedestrians, metro users and bicyclists. There are various development projects planned, particularly in downtown and Hollywood, which are becoming more dense and vertically-built. These projects preserve historic architecture while adding apartments, parks, retail and entertainment.

These 20 architectural renderings give us a glimpse into a stunning Los Angeles of the future…

1. Park 101
Park 101 would cover a portion of the 101 freeway in downtown with a park. As it’s currently envisioned, Park 101 would connect the Civic Center (south of the freeway) with Olvera Street, Chinatown and Union Station (north of the freeway). In August, the LA City Council unanimously approved a motion to seek funding for the proposal.

2. Greenway 2020
The Greenway 2020 project aims to create a continuous 51-mile corridor that will run along a restored LA River by 2020. “Instead of crowded streets and honking horns on your morning commute, imagine chirping birds, flowing water and numerous coffee shops along the way to work,” the project site reads. The river will also become a recreational destination for kayaking, fishing, picnicking and even yoga classes or bike-in movies.

3. High-Speed Rail
The California High-Speed Rail is a planned high-speed bullet train that would run from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Initial funding for the over-300-mile-long project was approved by California voters in 2008, and, although there have been legal setbacks, the state legislature overwhelmingly supports the project. California high-speed rail officials said Dec. 5 that engineering work, hiring and property buying are on pace and that construction will begin in January or February using federal money.

4. Subway to the Sea & Expo Line Extension
The Purple Line Extension, also known as the Subway to the Sea, will bring the subway westward from Koreatown to the Miracle Mile, Beverly Hills, Century City, Westwood and, depending on funding, possibly to the sea. Construction on the purple line will begin in 2014 and is expected to reach Westwood in 2035. The metro will also be expanding the Expo Line light rail in Culver City westward to the ocean, making a downtown-to-the-sea ride possible; construction is past the halfway point and is expected to be complete in 2015 or 2016.

5. Union Station

LA Metro is considering several redesign plans for Union Station. The plans are meant to improve passenger concourse experience, consolidate bus activity and possibly incorporate a future high-speed rail line. They also include preservation of the historic station, more open green space and improved pedestrian and bike paths. The Union Station Master Plan process involves lots of public input. The Metro is expected to pick a plan in spring 2014.

6. 6th Street Viaduct

Downtown LA’s 80-year-old Sixth Street bridge is at risk of falling during an earthquake, so last year the city announced a competition to replace it. The winners, HNTB, Michael Maltzan Architecture and AC Martin Partners, will build the bridge displayed below. They hope to add a space under the bridge for a market hall, restaurant, artist displays and film screenings. The $ 400 million dollar redesign is expected to begin in 2015, with completion scheduled for 2019.

7. LACMA

Six years ago, LACMA director Michael Govan commissioned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor to design a major new building to replace part of the museum. Zumthor’s proposed building, which he dubbed “Black Flower,” will be more than 30 feet into the air, with 360 degrees of glass offering views of the city. The building will have seven separate “pods” and entrances on all sides. It will also feature a solar farm roof that will be one of the largest in any city, capable of providing more energy than it consumes.

8. The Broad
Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad is building a $ 140-million contemporary art museum in downtown LA to house his impressive art collection. The block-long, three-story museum will feature a porous, concrete veil sheathed in glass that will provide both natural light and a view of some of the works from the street. People will even get to view art still in storage through portal windows into the museum’s vault. The Broad will have free admission and is scheduled to open toward the end of 2014.

9. Bringing Back Broadway
Downtown LA’s Broadway corridor is the largest historic theater district west of the Mississippi and is the birthplace of vaudeville. But recently, retailers have been struggling with a high vacancy rate. Bringing Back Broadway is a ten-year revitalization plan for the area launched by city leaders and residents in 2008. The plan aims to reactivate closed theaters, revive the area’s historic streetcar and encourage cultural, entertainment and retail uses of vacant spaces.

10. My Figueroa
The Figueroa Corridor Streetscape project is redesigning four miles of streets that stretch from downtown to South LA to better accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists and transit riders. The project, dubbed My Figueroa, includes better signalization and signage, high-visibility crosswalks, transit platforms and a three-mile bikeway. It also includes more trees, public art, bus shelters and bike racks. The $ 20 million project is funded by a Proposition 1C grant, which requires that construction be completed by the end of 2014.

11. Farmer’s Field
LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and developer AEG are still working on making Farmer’s Field — a proposed sports stadium, entertainment and new convention center — a reality. The proposed stadium, which could host an LA NFL team, would house up to 78,000 seats and feature a retractable roof. Farmer’s Field would be located in downtown, at the current West Hall of the LA Convention Center, alongside the STAPLES Center and LA Live.

12. Grand Avenue

Downtown LA’s Grand Park opened last summer, but the Grand Avenue project that was meant to bring foot-traffic to the area has been delayed for years. After submitting a Grand Avenue proposal in 2006, famed architect Frank Gehry, with development firm Related Cos., submitted a second proposal for the area to city and county officials in November. Gehry’s $ 650-million proposal, a U-shaped plaza directly across from Walt Disney Concert Hall, includes shops, restaurants, terraces, pool decks, condos, apartments and a hotel. The goal is to break ground in 2015 and open in 2019.

13. Federal Courthouse

LA’s new federal courthouse will look like a shimmering cube “floating” over a stone base. The futuristic building is designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification (an environmental building standard), partially thanks to a serrated façade that both maximizes views and reduces solar heat gain by nearly 50 percent. The building is under construction now and is projected to be completed in 2016.

14. Wilshire Grand Center

At 73 stories, the Wilshire Grand will become the tallest building in the West. Expected to be complete in 2017, it will replace the now-demolished 1950s Wilshire Grand Hotel. Korean Airlines and AC Martin Partners’ design includes high-speed elevators that will send hotel guests to the 70th-floor “sky lobby” to check in to one of 900 rooms. The first three floors of the tower will be restaurants and shops, topped by 30 floors of offices.

15. The BLOC

Downtown LA’s Macy’s Plaza is about to get a complete makeover and be renamed The Bloc. The new space will include outdoor restaurant seating, new retail tenants and more entrances around the building, including sidewalk-front escalators. The center’s extremely outdated Macy’s will reportedly be updated to flagship status, offering higher-quality brands. Construction is expected to begin in early 2014 and be complete in late 2015.

16. Hollywood Park Tomorrow
The Hollywood Park Racetrack, which has seen better days since it opened in 1938, closed for good this year. Coming in its place will be a 25-acre project called Hollywood Park Tomorrow. It will include a 620,000-square-foot retail/entertainment center, 3,000 residential units, 75,000 square feet of offices, a 120,000-square-foot casino, a 300-room hotel and a four-acre civic site.

Millennium Hollywood would be two mixed-use skyscrapers flanking the Capitol Records building. Construction is currently stalled by concerns about an active earthquake fault and by lawsuits from residents citing concerns about traffic and blocked views.

18. Columbia Square
The historic CBS studios in Hollywood are being transformed into an indoor/outdoor 22-story residential tower with 200 apartments, 33,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, three renovated historic structures and two new office buildings. The entire project is projected to be complete in 2016.

19. Jordan Downs
Jordan Downs, the Watts housing project, is scheduled to undergo a $ 1-billion overhaul to turn it into an “urban village” of shops, town homes, a park and gardens. The plan is to replace the current 700 units into 1,800 new apartments and streetscapes designed to attract higher-income people to live alongside some of LA’s poorest.
