Halloween is officially over, meaning it's finally a seasonally appropriate time to start holiday shopping — for yourself or others, we won't judge. Here, a look at L.A.'s best shopping events for the the week ahead.
Another weekend, another celebrity pop-up store.
Only this one is from The Weeknd. The "Starboy" singer announced that he would open 5 three-day pop-up shops (Nov. 4-6) across the globe, including two in SoCal. With retail partners Opening Ceremony and ComplexCon, The Weeknd is selling a capsule collection of tour merch created in partnership with Bravado, which also created merch for Justin Bieber, Guns 'n Roses and Selena Gomez.
The Weeknd's merch will also be sold at Opening Ceremony in New York, Alchemist in Miami and Selfridges in London, with more locations to be announced soon.
Opening Ceremony: 451 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90048
Zendaya is getting in on the pop-up fun, too, opening shops in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles where she'll be showcasing her new Daya by Zendaya clothing line. The shops will be open Saturday and Sunday, and Zendaya herself will be making a personal appearance in all three stores on Saturday. She'll hit the L.A. location on Fairfax (the same neighborhood where Kanye, Jay Z and Drake have held past pop-ups) between 8 and 10 P.M. on Nov. 5. The L.A. location is open 12-10 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
The direct-to-consumer collection, which retails for under $160 and is available in sizes 0-22, will soon be available on Zendaya: The App as well.

Designer Stacey Bendet just unveiled her Jean-Michel Basquiat-inspired collection for Alice + Olivia, which she created in partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The capsule is part of the organization's efforts to promote young talent — 50 percent of the proceeds from sales of the 17-piece collection ($150-$1295) will be donated to the CFDA.
True to Bendet's youthful yet tailored aesthetic, the pieces come in classic silhouettes but feature several of Basquiat's Neo-expressionist works reimagined as bold prints. Ball skirts, leather jackets, tees, leggings as well as accessories make-up the limited edition capsule. The entire collection is now available both online as well as in Alice + Olivia stores, including the Melrose and Beverly Drive locations.
