Paper Invades LA: Shop ‘Til You Drop


We’re probably getting to this post about the same time everyone from Paper is finally waking up from their recovery naps after the five-day bender that was the LA Paper Project. The highlight for us, of course, was the 24-hour pop-up store featuring some of our very favorite art and design retailers. The store, designed by Barbara Bestor, was hot and packed tight, and, to our dismay, a completely dry event, except for the bottomless supply of Red Bull. We hear Lindsay Lohan came by later, so it was probably for the best.

Kim Hastreiter‘s red specs presided over the Paper booth and Mickey Boardman flitted about the space in a signature cardigan. A smiling Tim Biskup carried an unhappy camper, his daughter, through the throngs. Cobrasnake was there selling his line of products (who knew?) and chatting with the guy we didn’t know was Jeremy Scott when we snapped him at Moss (he was wearing the same sweater so he was easy to spot). And we finally met the troublemaker behind CITIZEN:Citizen, Philip Wood, who handed us a bottle of pills (to promote their pop-up store in LA this December). He wasn’t too rattled by the fact that vendors Andrew Andrew were selling knock-offs of CITIZEN:Citizen’s products a few booths away. More on that.

We met photographer Dan Monick, he’s the guy who snapped those shots of Daft Punk for Paper this month (and he’s not telling who’s who behind the helmets). Adorable Rose Apodaca was found manning her booth and promoting A+R‘s new blog. The ‘A’ in A+R, Andy Griffith, was putting the final touches on the second A+R store in Venice, which opened this week. And our vote for favorite booth, Heartschallenger, got their heart on (below).

We Are Hella Stoked That Paper is Hella Stoked to Be In LA


It’s November, which means Los Angeles gets showered with love and kisses from our fondest fan, Paper. Last year we gushed about the mag’s temporary space in Hollywood that raged for three days with art shows, panels and free MAC Lip Glass (score!).

This year is shaping up to be even more gush-worthy. In addition to art shows by Phyllis Diller (yes, the very same ANP Quarterly covergirl), a Colette-sponsored “Thriller” dance-a-long, and a party for Cheryl Dunn‘s new book, Paper is pulling together a pop-up store in a Barbara Bestor-designed storefront on La Brea. For 24 hours starting Friday at 6pm, limited edition products will be sold by (take a deep breath before reading):

Colette, Opening Ceremony, Undefeated, The Smell, Levi’s, Screaming Mimi’s, Ooga Booga, Mollusk, Citizen Citizen, PAPER art store, M.A.C. cosmetics, Family, RVCA, Showpony, Creative Growth, Lost and Found, A+R, Heartschallenger, Cobra Snake, Supreme, Ingo Maurer, Threeasfour, FUCT, Karen Kimmel, Rodarte, Jack Spade, Jeremy Scott, Barbara Bestor

We can’t wait to watch not-so-undercover design guru Kim Hastreiter fawning over all her finds. All details here.
