Charles Clark and Grant Cooper of Clark Cooper Concepts are hungry for more action. The power duo who brought you Brasserie 19, Ibiza, Coppa Osteria, Coppa Ristorante and Punk's Simple Southern have two exciting projects underway. The Dunlavy, designed as a private event space at Buffalo Bayou Park, will have the same food and service you would expect at any of their restaurants. Attached to the venue will be a counter-service concept called Grab and Go at The Dunlavy. The project in its entirety opens Summer 2015. Clark and Cooper's second project is Mobile Mug, a coffee truck that begins cruising city streets this month. The shop on wheels serves up fine coffee and cinnamon rolls … Glazed has opened at 1333 Old Spanish Trail.

We couldn't get enough … Chef Bruce Molzan of Ruggles fame has quietly joined forces with restaurateur Neera Patidar (Nosh Bistro) to open Ruggles Black at 3963 Kirby.

Megan Pruitt Winder Mini- Malle E xit Marc Jacobs, enter Nicolas Ghesquière. The former Balenciaga creative director inherited the keys to the French castle Louis Vuitton last fall. We've waited with bated breath for the debut of his first collection for the Parisian powerhouse, Fall 2014. The look has a '60s and '70s vibe — a total triumph. Yet, the showstopper of the collection proves that good things do come in small packages: the Petite Malle, a shrunken-down version of Vuitton's infamous Malle trunk. We've been spinning since we saw it on the runway dangling from the arm of model Freja Beha Erichsen. Luckily, we only had to wait a short seven months to get our hands on this mini- Malle. It's available in classic monogram canvas or damier, as well as epi leather in red, orange, white, black, rose and gold, with gold, black and silver metallic options adorning a hinge with trunk-like clasps. $5,250 to 5,500, at Louis Vuitton. Megan Pruitt Winder A merican jeweler David Yurman has a way of romanticizing the past — think of his signature cable bracelet dubbed Renaissance. Yurman celebrates the architecture of the time yet again with the Venetian Quatrefoil collection. The quatrefoil ("four leaves" in Latin) is a motif found in classical architecture and a central element in Venice's stonework, as seen in the façade of the Doge's Palace. Must-haves include the sizeable cuff with countless diamonds and the collectable stack rings. A first for the jeweler, Yurman creates the complete collection in both 18K rose and yellow gold, chock-full of bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings. $875 to $39,000, launching exclusively at Neiman Marcus.

"Love Street: The Houston Scene" is not to be missed, culling hometown talent alongside those that once called Houston home.

Anspon Houston Fine Art Fair's Global Stance COURTESY THE ARTIST AND DEBORAH COLTON GALLERY DESIGN INTERVENTION H aving launched a successful interiors business Katie Design over a decade ago, Katie Stassi Scott is no stranger to style. Indeed, this publication gave her a Design Award in 2013, and Domino named her a Top 10 Designer. What was lacking in her world was a modern way to show her faith — a pillar in Scott's personal life and often a motivator professionally. Enter Katie Design Jewelry, a spiritually inspired jewelry collection that marries contemporary design with classic motifs such as the cross, rosary, crown, Star of David, Hamsa symbol and quite a few saints, rendered in gold and sterling and encrusted with black, white and blue diamonds. Neiman Marcus has seen the light: As of last month, the retailer carries much of the collection online and in its Houston and Beverly Hills stores, among others. Meaningful meets rock 'n' roll.
