On Specs... Kira Redux?... D&G Will Open Virtual Doors...

Fans of the late Yves Saint Laurent’s dark tortoiseshell specs can now get their mitts on their own made-to-measure pair.

NEW PARTNERS: A fresh collaboration of fashion and art will hit Los Angeles this summer, when David Arquette, Ben Harper and David Bedwell open a pop-up shop for their clothing line Propr along Venice’s hip Abbott Kinney corridor. The trio — an actor, musician and former Original Penguin creative director — teamed up to launch the line of classic casualwear last fall, including T-shirts, men’s jackets, button downs and women’s dresses and pants. Arquette is hand-painting the interior of the pop-up store, which will open in the next two weeks. The Venice pop-up store will be the brand’s first stand-alone location; Propr is now sold at retailers like Fred Segal, Kitson and Scoop. “It’s going to be a supercool, artsy space, I want it to be something special, that the community can really embrace,” Arquette said. Arquette said he will adding his artistic touch to some of the line’s T-shirts using paint. Propr will expand its knitwear collection in the coming months and is considering a foray into the denim market.
