The rooftop at Blü; a look from Bill Blass New York summer '08 collection
BEVERLY HILLS: Racked LA reports that Blü Beverly Hills, that kooky rental building on Wilshire Boulevard, is hosting a Bill Blass New York summer '08 collection showcase/trunk show this weekend. Yes, it's all about selling Bill Blass, but it's also clearly about moving $7,000/month units, writes Racked. From the press release: "After the show, guests will have opportunity to view the Bill Blass New York collection first hand at the private onsite showroom and tour the luxury residences at blü."
LOS ANGELES: Wow. Project Runway is moving operations from New York to Los Angeles. On the show, the contestants are always put up in some NYC new rental or condo building. (From how much loving coverage the building gets from the cameras, it looks like it's a marketing deal.) What Los Angeles building will the contestants live in?
SILVER LAKE: Racked heads to Le Pink & Co., the local apothecary and discovers all their pink-hued stock: "The true-to-color apothecary has many mini curated elements—products and beauty knick-knacks on a little round table, shelving, a desk, and in a basket." Girly!
