Yesterday the “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait” exhibition opened in Camden. It gives an insight into the singer’s life beyond the fame. With unseen family photos, clothes, shoes, and even fridge magnets that all belonged to the singer. The exhibition has been put together by the singers brother Alex and this wife Liz, and marks 2 years this month since the singer passed away.
The latest creation by Leandro Erlich popped up in Hackney on the 26th of June and will remain there until the 4th of August. The three-dimensional visual illusion lets you swing from window ledges, run up walls and generally defy gravity. We’re surprised that we haven’t seen photos of anyone in a spider-man suit running around on it…..watch this space!
Frank’s is back. Which officially means it’s summer (regardless of the weather trying to tell us otherwise).
So we sent someone down to check out the opening of our favourite summer pop up, and their new art installation for this year.
And here’s what they saw….
(If you’ve got a moment we highly suggest you pop up to Franks on the top of Peckham Car Park and have an Aperol Spritz for us…)
As I’m sure you all know, we’re big advocators of new talent and supporting those that are finding their feet and making a name for themselves.
So when we saw new monthly magazine Kit, we new they were a perfect fit for us. The content is great (there’s weekly ‘Monday Manicure’ inspirations, and ‘Wednesday crushes’), the editorials are beautiful, and the girls behind the magazine aren’t too bad themselves.
We suggest that you check it out NOW.
SHARA HAYZ (www.sharahayz.com) and ROB ELFORD (www.robelford.co.uk ) have joined forces to create a fabulously spangly fashion film shot in Victor Wynd’s ‘little shop of horrors’ on Mare St. Their concept revolves around inter-dimensional time travel and the exploration of obscurities. In this other-worldly ‘Victorian curiosity’ shop, the characters are drawn to mystical rings and amulets scattered there.
On the 7th of July an opening 3D film preview will be held at ‘The Little shop of Horrors’, E8 4PR
Followed with a photo and product exhibition to be held across the road at 1 Vyner St Gallery, E2 9DG
BLOW PR’s former client, Thai-based designer Disaya, who allowed us to lend the dress to the singer back in 2006, offered it to be sold to raise money after Amy’s death in July.
The iconic dress worn by Amy Winehouse for the cover of the ‘Back to Black’ album was auctioned off last week for £43,200.
