Cirrus Aircraft Announces Pricing for Vision Jet

December 11, 2009

Cirrus Aircraft announced this summer that the nearly 500 buyers who have already reserved a single-engine Vision Personal Jet will pay just $1.39 million to fly it away when the first copies roll off the production line. New buyers who get in line by the end of 2009 will pay $1.55 million, and in January the price goes up to $1.72 million. Securing a place requires a deposit of $50,000 to $100,000. Cirrus so far is not saying when deliveries will start, but work continues both to secure investors and to advance the design. The jet will feature flexible seating for up to seven and a cruise speed of 345 mph. The Vision shares many of the features popular in the Cirrus piston line–Cirrus Perspective by Garmin avionics, anti-icing protection, and an airframe parachute system. The prototype first flew in July 2008. (, 218.529.7292)

November 30, 2009

On November 27th, Black Friday, Five Four is opening its second store at Westfield Century City.

About seven weeks after opening our first store, we have taken on the task of opening our second store. A little soon? Eh maybe, but here we go. We are very excited about this opportunity, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the space. We’ve worked very hard, and are still working very hard to make the space incredible.

One last thing, Five Four DENIM IS BACK! After a six month hiatus, our denim program is back and stronger than ever. I completely re-designed the denim, new look, but same fit as before. We will be launching a DENIM BAR inside both the Culver City and Century City store on the same day, BLACK FRIDAY.

Come join us in the new era of Five Four.

Both Culver City and Century City will be open at 8am on Black Friday, with that date being the GRAND OPENING for CENTURY CITY. Please join us in a fun filled day of shopping and celebrating.

California Dreaming

Cali Jewles 1

French jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels found inspiration in the colorful flora, fauna, and landscape of California for its latest High Jewelry collection, California Rêverie. The 100-piece collection employs an array of vibrant-colored gemstones to portray the imagery of the West Coast including both literal translations, such as the poppy floral clip featuring a 6.52-carat pear-shaped green sapphire from Madagascar set with yellow sapphires, and the subliminal Big Sur necklace composed of nine Paraiba tourmalines suggesting the vastness of the blue water and sky.

The High Jewelry collection is a culmination of a few years of developing the design concepts, assembling rare gemstones, and executing each handmade piece in Van Cleef & Arpels’ Parisian workshops. This year’s collection was unveiled in Los Angeles in October and will be traveling internationally for the fall season. Among the standout pieces is the California sunset clip made of a massive 100-carat-plus Ethiopian opal, in shades of orange, purple, and green, which is anchored by diamond palm trees standing on a bed of blue sapphires. Prices range from about $50,000 to $1.5 million. (877.826.2533,
