As the adage goes, news travels fast. And, in a city as socially connected as S.F., "fast" doesn't even cut it — try lightning speed. That's why we local editors work 'round the clock to keep our eyes on the prize and ears to the ground, to bring forth the buzziest and freshest headlines in and around our city. This week, from Mulberry joining Silicon Valley's luxe shopping strip to the opening date of a mouthwatering new eatery, here's everything you need to know.

In S.F., it’s getting easier and easier to achieve très chic style. Case in point: Parisian brand The Kooples is setting up shop on Fillmore next to the Clay Theatre! No word yet on when we’ll be saying bonjour to the new boutique, but we’ll reserve space in our closets in the mean time. (Racked SF)

Feline fanatics, prepare to get straight up frisky with this bit of news! Oakland is getting its own cat café! The venture currently has an Indie Gogo campaign, and if it reaches its goals, we can grab a coffee and pet a kitty all at the same time. Best yet, the furry friends will be up for adoption! We’re purring with content for this one folks. (East Bay Express)

We’d argue that in this bipolar weather climate, knitwear is always an absolute must. That’s why we instantly gravitate toward Kathryn McCarron's cozy-cute wares. And, she’s making our hearts go aflutter with her latest fall 2014 lookbook that has us begging for foggy temps year round. (Kathryn McCarron)

You’re going to want to circle March 1 on your calendars because the highly anticipated third installment from the group that brought us Sons and Daughters, will be launching! Dubbed The Square, the restaurant will open in North Beach for us to chow down on dishes like baby back ribs with cucumber and mint. Being a square has never been so cool. (Eater SF)

Looks like the Bay is getting a complete European invasion — sartorially speaking. Mulberry has officially opened its doors inside Santa Clara’s Westfield Valley Fair Mall for us to get British wares that are exactly our cup of tea. (Mulberry)
