This Week's Style Events

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Aug 7, 2014 at 1:29 PM

Art, fashion, and commerce all hang out, so a First Thursday week means a busy week in the world of local style. Here's all the shindigs fit to print, plus a couple o' sneakers that came in after deadline:

• It's testament to the eyes behind Maven Collective—Kim Ludy and Jacklyn Arvin—that I followed them on Instagram before figuring out that theirs is the brick 'n' mortar at 7819 SE Stark. Their emphasis on housewares jives with thirtysomething Portland shoppers who grew up thrifting clothing and have recently become homeowners. This week Maven sets up with Vintalier to debut a fresh crop of merch; check 'em out. Vintalier, 412 NW 13th, Thurs Aug 7, 6-9 pm, through Fri Aug 15

• If you've never been to a hair show, you're in for a treat: Hair M|W is presenting "Hair Is Art," a party that showcases stylists when they aren't tied down by the practicalities of their clients' lives, which is to say there will be loads of sculptural talent on display. Models will also show off Danielle Grasseth clothing and Alchemy Jewelers accessories, plus DJ Avalanche and cocktails courtesy of New Deal. Hair M|W, 1015 NW Lovejoy, Thurs Aug 7, 6-10 pm

• Artist/designer Haley Ann is kicking off a month-long residency at Yo Vintage!, along with jewelry from Portland hotshots BLTN and RillRill. Yo Vintage!, 413 SW 13th, Thurs Aug 7, 6-9 pm

Caravan Pacific is relieving your hair-tie frustration (cheap-looking elastic, the challenge of using your ends to cover them up tidily—ugh!). They've developed Modern Metal Hair Ties, which are exactly what they sound like, and come in simple brass and copper styles. They're hosting a release party for 'em too, with refreshments and styling tips. Betsy + Iya, 2403 NW Thurman, Thurs Aug 7, 6-9 pm

Upswept Creative is hosting an open studio featuring a trunk show of Hubris Apparel along with sculptures by Dwight Evalt Art, and Megalith beer to entice a stop on your First Thursday cruising. Upswept Creative, 217 NW Couch, Thurs Aug 7, 6-8 pm

• Lizard Lounge is launching a show for artist Zane Spang with a party that includes live music, beer, and 20 percent off all full-priced merch. Lizard Lounge, 1323 NW Irving, Thurs Aug 7, 7-10 pm

Orox Leather Company celebrates the completion of its first year in Old Town, with a party that features snacks 'n' boozes plus hourly raffles of their signature handmade sandals and 25 percent off. Orox Leather Co., 450 NW Couch, Thurs Aug 7, 5:30-9 pm

• This city has come down with a serious case of the fleas, and it's worth mentioning the one being held every second Friday and Saturday of the month at Grand Marketplace, which is a goldmine for antique furniture, as well as smaller vintage goodies. Grand Marketplace, 1005 SE Grand, Fri Aug 8, 4-7 pm, Sat Aug 9, 10 am-4 pm

Renegade Craft Fair partners with Rejuvenation for the first-ever Portland Mini Market, with over 60 independent designers from Portland and beyond, plus art installations, music, and food vendors. Look for Portland favorites like Pigeon Toe ceramics, Make It Good clothing, and Portland Apothecary, as well as introductions to work from beyond the local circuit. Rejuvenation, 1100 SE Grand, Sat Aug 9-Sun Aug 10, noon-6 pm

• Northwest jewelry shop TWIST is playing host to Pippa Small, who won a Members of the Order of the British Empire Award last year for her work, which focuses on indigenous craftspeople and ethical production practices. For one day only she'll be showcasing the complete collection of her new work in addition to a number of one-of-a-kinds. TWIST, 30 NW 23rd Pl, Sat Aug 9, noon-5 pm

Adam Arnold dropped the news via FB/Instagram that he's having one of his rare studio sales: "One can expect many men's and women's iconic and experimental pieces. Really everything from suit jackets to swimsuits. And snooks!" Adam Arnold Studio, 338 SE MLK, Sat Aug 9, 10 am-6 pm

• This happens so rarely, it really shouldn't be missed: Odessa is hosting one of its backroom sales, with past seasons' merchandise at $10-100. Empty your bank account before you go; it's cash only. Odessa, 717 SW Ankeny, Sun Aug 10, noon-4 pm

• Destiny's Style vintage market pops up every Sunday in front of Valentines, representing a coalition of vendors (Milk Money, Drank Sinatra, World Clique, Zero Wave, Moonfossil, Thread and Roses). They specialize in '80s and '90s gear, plus there are a smattering of new wares, such as jewelry by 3 caves. Valentines, 232 SW Ankeny, (every) Sun Aug 10, 2-6:30 pm
