Last night I went to the opening of the Generic Man pop-up shop at Space 15 Twenty here in Los Angeles. The event was in conjunction with the launch of Generic Man’s Spring/Summer ’09 line, as well as the addition of a rather sexy line of women’s shoes as well. The evening was rather fun, with plenty of good looking, well dressed people in attendance.
The pop-up itself was beautiful, with lots of structures made of recycled materials like wood and cardboard. The decorations were great, including Generic Ceramics or Pottery or something like that, a line of pots that were for sale and contained some nice succulents. There was also a flat gray Fiat parked in the middle of the space, looking tiny and cute.
To further compliment the shoes and atmosphere there were issues of Arkitip strewn about as well as a display for SUPER Sunglasses. You could even buy the furniture that was on display! If you’re around LA I’d definitely suggest you stop by, they’ve made a really great space.
Check under the cut for a ton more photos and details of the space.

For the last few months my inspirations have started shifting sharply, from architecture to fashion, I guess I’ve caught the sartorial bug. So now I always keep my eye out for good buys, clothing and accessories that aren’t too expensive but will still look great. When I saw this great weekender bag by Deerfield on Urban Outfitters, I knew it fit my requirements.
First of it’s a faux grey leather, and I’m slightly obsessed with grey leather at the moment, so that’s a plus. Then there’s the fact that it’s only $48, which is way cheap. I also think the pattern of the lining is pretty sharp as well. I really wanted to use this for my Thanksgiving trip home this week, so I tried stopping by two UO’s today, but sadly they only carry the black and tan versions in store. Bummer.
New Young Pony Club
are a London based band that was just recently signed to Modular Records
(home of awesomeness such as The Avalanches, Chromeo, and Cut Copy). They sound somewhere in-between Blondie and The Blow, with a tinge of Madonna-esque vocals. Lots of great bass lines and hot keyboard action make them really fun to dance to.
