This is very exciting. My super-talented friend Andrea Gibbin, along with her super-talented partner-in-crime Wendy Riva, in conjunction with Los Angeles interior wunderkind Nathan Turner and famed New York designer Eric Hughes, have just opened for a very limited time their 'global bohemian' pop-up store, R + G Collective on San Vicente in Brentwood. You may remember snippets from the fabulously fearless Riva/Gibbin buying trip to Damascus, Beirut and Paris? Well, the fruits of those labors -- and of their impeccable taste -- is now available to all in the know* LA folk. Leather poufs from Damascus, tea tables from Morocco and armadillos from Paris are just a few of the one-of-a-kind gems you'll find, along with clothes by Minnie Mortimer and Soledad Twombly, bags by Clare Vivier and much, much more.
