1. The Den.m Bar opened up last week in downtown Los Angeles, offering custom made denim for about $200.  Everything is made on the premises and made from a choice of Kaihara Denim, Nisshinbo Denim, Cone Denim White Oak (from North Carolina), Kurabo Denim, and Canadian Denim.  Image via the Brigham Yen blog.

2. Looks like Raf Simons has handed over not only his role as Creative Director at Jil Sander, but also the director’s role at The Avant/Garde Diaries Festival, which will hold a show in downtown Los Angeles (April 19 to May 10).  The new curator is Mike D of The Beastie Boys.

3. Citizens of Humanity and Goldsign have opened up their gorgeous new 2,000-square-foot showroom in West Hollywood, California.  Buyers might be tempted to hang out a little longer than usual, but we’re certain that will be okay.

4. NYC Twi-Hards will get to meet Kellan Lutz at Bloomingdales in the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, who will be present this Saturday, March 17 (2 to 3 p.m.) to promote the Dylan George and Abbot + Main Spring 2012 collection.  Shoppers who makes purchases through March 17 will get access to the VIP “Express” line to meet Kellan first.  Location:  Bloomingdales Roosevelt Field Mall, Menswear Main Level, 630 Old Country Rd., Garden City.

1. Last weekend, Raf Simons presented his final collection at Milan Fashion Week as Creative Director for Jil Sander, because the founder of the brand is returning.  The womenswear is gorgeous, by the way.  Perhaps Simons will go back to further developing his namesake denim?  Fingers crossed.

2.  On February 21, G-Star RAW opened their largest global flagship store in the world, a 7,319 square feet brick-and-mortar store in Hong Kong.  The event was marked by stuntmen walking down the building and a traditional lion dance, with indigo blue lions. Watch the G-Star grand opening event online.

3. Kellan Lutz is certainly becoming a fashion fixture.  Between his acting and design collaboration with clothing brand Abbot+Main, he still found time to squeeze in front row at the Simon Spurr fashion show during NYFW.

4. Shopbop has a ONE by collection, a collaboration between multiple brands which feature covetable pieces on limited supply, such as this denim oxford shoe (featured above) by Anniel ($135).

5. What are you doing on Instagram? We found a couple of musician/concert photographers from IndieRockReviews.com, wearing Volcom and RVCA jeans out in SoCal.  Photo via Tim Johnson (@timtom949).

Get the Look: Kellan Lutz Rocks Color in Dylan George & Abbot+Main
