SAN DIEGO — The stars were out in La Jolla Thursday night as Louis Vuitton unveiled its new 2023 Cruise collection during a runway show at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

So what brought one of the most famous fashion brands of all time to a research facility in San Diego? It all came down to the look, of course.

Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of womenswear at Louis Vuitton, recently talked with Women’s Wear Daily, telling the outlet that the architecture of the building sealed the deal for this show.

“I’d seen pictures of the Salk, it was on the cover of the Louis Vuitton magazine in 2019, and I was always curious to see it for real,” Ghesquière told the trade journal. “I was curious about the architecture and environment. So I came down to San Diego a couple of years ago and I didn’t get a chance to see it, but I saw La Jolla and the beach and I enjoyed the atmosphere.”

Founded in 1960 by Jonas Salk, who is widely credited as the developer of the first successful polio vaccine, the Salk Institute’s building caught the eye of Louis Vuitton for its views of the ocean and its open, modernist look with its primary material being concrete.

“Concrete is the material of parking garages and overpasses and highways, but in the Salk Institute, the concrete has an enormous warmth to it and changes in beautiful ways as the sun moves around or the fog rolls in,” according to Nathaniel Kahn, son of Salk Institute architect Louis Kahn. “It couldn’t be too green or too blue, like most concrete. It had to have warmth.”

Among those spotted Thursday evening was none other than Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, fresh off hosting the Met Gala earlier this month in New York City. Supermodels Miranda Kerr and Salem Mitchell were also present at the event, which took place in front of a sunset backdrop.

“Knives Out” star Ana De Armas and “Eternals” actor Gemma Chan were also photographed among the crowd, along with “Bridgerton” lead Phoebe Dynevor and “13th” filmmaker Ava Duvernay.

It was also a family night out for “This Is 40” and “Knocked Up” actor Leslie Mann, who brought her daughters Iris Apatow — who recently starred in Netflix’s “The Bubble” alongside her mother — and Maude Apatow, fresh off rave reviews for her role as Lexi Howard in HBO’s “Euphoria.”

Baseball for Breakfast … Will We Ever Have a Morning 1st Pitch at Petco Park?

Sunday’s game between the Padres and Braves started at 11:35 am in Atlanta, an awfully early first pitch by Major League Baseball standards. The early start time is something brand new this year called MLB Sunday Leadoff. Every Sunday, Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, will have an exclusive morning game.

San Diego was the first west coast team to participate and it was definitely a little different.

“Yeah, it was like an 8:35 game for us,” said outfielder Wil Myers, who drove in three runs in a 7-3 Padres win. “I had a 6:30 alarm. I’ve never had that before in the big leagues. But, it was good to get out here, get the game over with, good crowd here so it was a lot of fun.”

More than 41,000 people packed Truist Park to watch, and that’s in the churchgoing South, so the idea is obviously popular with baseball fans. This year all 18 of Peacock’s Sunday Leadoff games will start in the Eastern time zone, but with the concept already getting such positive reviews, it begs the question:

Will we ever see Sunday morning baseball at Petco Park?

“I don’t want to speak for anyone else but I would love that,” says Ahmed Fareed, who hosts the pre- and postgame shows on Peacock from the field. “Honestly, I’d be all about it and I hope this catches on because there’s something about … and maybe this is just me because now I’m a father of two who are seven and six years old, but my day has shifted more morning than night, but I don’t think I’m alone.”

He’s certainly not. In fact, Peacock did not specify keeping all 18 Sunday games out east, implying they’d be open to doing a game at all 30 Major League ballparks. There are seven teams in the Pacific time zone, including five in California alone. The novelty of breakfast burritos and baseball is awfully appealing to fans and broadcast partners.

“I think it’s something unique, which is what every sport is looking for,” says Fareed. “Football has got the uniqueness of just one game per week. This would kind of give baseball a little bit of that unique, event-type feel every single Sunday if we could pull something like that off.”

However, as fun as the idea sounds, there are a whole lot of obstacles to clear.

“There are certain rules and regulations in the Collective Bargaining Agreement on how many games can start before noon so I think MLB had to weigh that against what we were proposing,” says Fareed.

The C.B.A. contains no fewer than seven pages focusing solely on what times of day games can and cannot be scheduled. As it stands now, no big league contests are allowed to start before 10:00 am. Of course, things like that are always open for negotiation and if early games mean more money for everyone they could make a change.

Alas, odds are they won’t push for that because the logistics from an operational standpoint are, at best, prohibitive. Putting on a Major League game is an all-day undertaking.

Gates for a game open two hours before first pitch, meaning Petco Park would have to open at 6:35 am. Food and beverage crews would have to be there a couple of hours before that.

Batting practice would start at 5:30 in the morning, and although the crack of the bat is a fabulous sound it’s something folks in the condos around the ballpark might not be too excited to hear that early on a Sunday.

So, sipping a Machado Mimosa while eating Hosmer Hash Browns at the yard is likely just a dream. The Padres do have another early game on Peacock, though, on August 14 in Washington against the Nationals.

The Padres and Braves played a special MLB Leadoff game, a new thing that NBC's Peacock streaming service is trying this year. It's where an east coast game starts at 11:30 in the morning to give folks the chance to watch baseball all year.

This was the first time a west coast team has been involved and for San Diego it was a little different.

"I had a 6:30 am alarm, I've never had one of those in the big leagues," said outfielder Wil Myers.

Perhaps it was the 8:30 first pitch on their body clocks but the Friars started slowly before their offense got going in a 7-3, 11-inning win to take two out of three from the Braves and, for the time-being, take over first place all alone in the National League West (depending on the result of the afternoon's Dodgers-Phillies game).

Even Joe Musgrove was not as sharp as we've grown accustomed to. He walked three hitters, matching his total for the entire season, but was able to avoid any major damage with six more strikeouts in 6.0 innings. Musgrove was touched up by a Dansby Swanson 2-run home run in the 4th inning that gave Atlanta a 3-0 lead.

In the 5th the Padres started to get the bats cooking, with help from some uncharacteristically shoddy Braves defense. Catcher William Contreras tried to pick off Austin Nola at 1st base but Matt Olson let the ball get right through him and into right field. Jurickson Profar scampered home from 2nd base to put the Friars on the board.

It would not be the last time they got some help from Atlanta's fielders.

In the 7th inning Myers singled to bring in Profar again, then advanced to 3rd on a throwing error by Braves 3rd baseman Austin Riley, which turned out to be a big deal because Nola was able to bring Wil home on a sacrifice fly to tie the game 3-3.

San Diego's bullpen that has been a bit of a problem in 2022 came up huge on Sunday. Craig Stammen and Luis Garcia each threw a scoreless inning then Nabil Crismatt tossed 2.0 innings, allowing just one baserunner and striking out four. Their efforts pushed the game to the 11th inning, where the Braves defense cracked again.

Ha-Seong Kim led off with a line drive double down the left field line to score Jake Cronenworth and give the Friars their first lead of the day. Eric Hosmer followed with a grounder up the middle that was easily fielded by Swanson but his throw was in the dirt. Hosmer was safe and things went downhill quickly for Atlanta.

Profar hit a grounder to Ozzie Albies at 2nd base. Kim got a fabulous jump from 3rd base and, even with the infield in, beat the throw with a twisting slide around the catcher to make it a 5-3 game. Myers followed with a broken bat single to right that brought in two more.

It wasn't a save opportunity but closer Taylor Rogers came in to shut it down anyways, going 1-2-3 to give the Padres the win.

The Friars have an off day on Monday and start a 3-game set in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Mike Clevinger is scheduled to get the start in that one.

Chula Vista to Consider Ordinance Strengthening Protections for Tenants

Tuesday night, the Chula Vista City Council will consider an ordinance that could protect tenants in rental properties.

Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas said the ordinance is directed at landlords who evict good tenants to avoid the state of California’s rent-control rules.

“They kick those tenants out and then they can bring back new tenants at much higher rents," Salas said. "That’s what we’re trying to address."

Salas said the Tenant Protection Ordinance makes it harder for renters to be evicted when the owner wants to remodel or move in a family member.

“It’s to a very, very few, but those very, very few are really making life really miserable for some really good families,” Salas explained. “Most housing providers are good actors. It’s those few that we need to address.”

In some instances, owners could be fined $1,000 or jailed for up to six months for any violations if the ordinance passes.

“Honestly, it’s the last thing we need,” said property owner and former Chula Vista City Councilman Mitch Thompson, who owns several homes.

“I’m concerned that the city council is going to adopt something they think protects tenants when it actually hurts them in the long run,” Thompson said.

Thompson said the ordinance would deter property owners from renting out their homes, thus limiting the housing market even more. He also said it would raise costs for landlords, which would then raise costs for tenants.

“We need more housing," Thompson said. "We don’t need more regulations."

“This will strip away any rights that any private property owner currently does have,” added fellow landlord Max Zaker.

Zaker said the city would be adding too many rules, which would deter him from trying to improve his property.

“I would have to give the tenant a 12-month notice,” Zaker said. “On top of that, I would have to provide 60 days of relocation assistance.”

“There’s a lot of fearmongering going on,” Salas said with a sigh.

Chula Vista's mayor said there are too many property owners taking advantage of the gray area between the state’s rules. She said this ordinance would close some of those loopholes.

“There’s been a lot of heated discussion,” Salas concluded.

The Tenant Protection Ordinance is on the Chula Vista City Council agenda Tuesday night at 5.
