A pop-up shop for Nicole Richie's House of Harlow 1960 label is opening at the Grove in Los Angeles just in time for Independence Day weekend.
Set to open its doors at the east end of the outdoor shopping center (next to the Kiehl's Since 1851 store) on July 3, the 935-square-foot space will stock not only a summery capsule collection of apparel from the boho label, but also some vintage pieces that caught Richie's eye in her travels. Also on hand will be a range of contemporary jewelry – including an exclusive-to-the-store malachite collection and a fine jewelry collection that's new to the brand – as well as scented candles and sunglasses.
It marks the first time the celebrity-turned designer's House of Harlow 1960 label has had a temporary stateside boutique; there was a House of Harlow 1960 pop-up in Dubai earlier this year.
House of Harlow 1960 at the Grove, Friday, July 3 through Wednesday, July 16.

The Westime luxury watch and jewelry store that's been at 254 North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills for more than a decade has moved -- but just a few cobblestone-covered steps away to the top of Via Rodeo.
The new 2,000-square-foot space is located at the top of the Via Rodeo pedestrian walkway -- just past the valet parking elevators and across from Restaurant 208. While the Westime wares haven't changed (an assortment of high-end timepieces from some 40 brands including Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Breitling, Chopard, Franck Muller, Harry Winston and Richard Mille) a few new additions (Carl F. Bucherer, Omega, Ulysse-Nardin and some Bulgari high-complication pieces) have been added to the mix to coincide with the opening of the new space. One of the fun flourishes of the new façade is a half dozen display cases across the two front windows that pivot 180 degrees each hour to display different watches to passersby. Westime Beverly Hills, 216 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills.
