Fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg is popping into town Saturday for an “only in Los Altos” event in both the literal and figurative senses of the word. She’s speaking at a private event on the Facebook campus Friday and decided to turn her Bay Area trip into a luxury retail opportunity just down the road at Los Altos’ Area 151 Arcade. Yes – the video game arcade at 359 State St.

Her fashion label is hosting a pop-up shop 10-6 p.m. Saturday and 11-6 p.m. Sunday, with an anticipated appearance by von Furstenberg Saturday morning. Word has it she might offer styling advice to those who drop by at the right moment. An on-site “monogramming station” is expected to be in operation throughout the weekend.
