HOLLYWOOD: Racked goes backstage at the Oscars and gets a close look at the ceremony's official envelopes. Designed by Marc Friedland, they are "handcrafted from high-gloss metallic gold paper stock with red-lacquered lining that features the Oscar statuette hand-stamped in satin gold leaf." Fancy stuff.
DOWNTOWN: Lucky Brand just unveiled a new, two-story HQ on Santa Fe Ave Downtown. Racked has photos and details on the space, which is decorated with "patterned tile floors, hand-painted rugs, oversize leather chairs and raffia walls."
VENICE: Jean Touitou, the founder of uber-cool French brand APC, has revealed that he's interested in opening a store in Venice. Of course, that can only mean Abbot Kinney.
