IN THE GROOVE: To celebrate the opening of its 10,000-square-foot store in Manhattan’s Union Square on Saturday, Mexx, the European brand that began its U.S. invasion last month with a Fifth Avenue location, will hold a day’s worth of DJs spinning everything from futuristic house to hip-hop.

From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. this Saturday, Alex Lauterstein, Peter Rauhofer, Kid Capri and Junior Sanchez are the ingredients of what Mexx described as “a raucous recipe for unbridled music, fun and, of course, style.” Free DJ classes will be held on the second floor of the store in conjunction with the Scratch DJ academy. The party will then be kept alive on Nov. 8 with Kool DJ Red Alert, Beverly Bond, Tony Touch and Mark Ronson.
