Comment dit-on "very cool" in the languages of song, style, and food? Just say Kitsuné, the electro-indie record label-turned-fashion brand that's equal parts Paris and Tokyo, which is now holding court at Platform in Culver City. True to its epic rager roots, the cultivator of cool toasted its L.A. pop-up last Thursday with a rooftop party at the stylish lifestyle center's Margot resto, complete with dancing, drinks, and DJ sets.

Landing in the 600-square-foot space that previously hosted Damsel in Dior, Rouje, and Allen Schwartz (to name a few), the art gallery-like boutique's interiors are inspired by California desert sunsets, as seen in the burnt orange and yellow shades. As far as merch, the store stocks Kitsuné's latest spring/summer 2020 range comprised of sharply-tailored women's and men's ready-to-wear, footwear, bags, and accessories. (The line is one of three seasons designed by South Korean creative director Yuni Ahn, previously at Phoebe Philo-helmed old Céline, before she exited the brand last month.)

The temporary shop will also stock limited-edition collaborations and exclusive collections, including the brand's charming Double Fox Head capsule ($45 to $340) of women's and men's accessories, tees, polo shirts, oxford button-downs, merino wool cardigans, and more. (Kitsuné's name means "fox" in Japanese.) Expect a full schedule of events during the brand's Westside tenure.

Founded in 2002 by best friends Gildas Loaëc (previously Daft Punk's manager) and architect Masaya Kuroki, the brand embarked on a major culinary and fashion expansion last year that included its Paris Fashion Week debut and Café Kitsuné openings in the City of Lights and New York. The restaurants serve up Japanese-inspired French bistro fare.
