Renowned for repurposing Nike staples to new levels of hyperfunctionality is Studio ALCH, the brainchild of Australia-born, London-based talent Alexandra Hackett, better know by her Instagram moniker Miniswoosh. We checked out the brand’s first collection showcased for London Fashion Week Men’s at NikeLab’s 1948 space in East London.
For its ‘50/50’ project, London-based merchandise label Everpress recently enlisted 50 young artists — including designer Liam Hodges, Joshua Saunders and photographer/director Dexter Navy — to produce a charity collection for Amnesty International. We went down to London’s Protein Studio to check out the launch.
Putting their city on the map, particularly their neck of the woods of South London, is UK’s hardest rap duo, Krept & Konan. What started out as a pun on Twitter that the rappers open their own restaurant, has now officially become a reality. Patta was there to partake in the festivities, peep some photos of the opening weekend here.
Following last month’s Air Max Day celebrations, Nike present a city dedicated Air festivity week for London. Air Max is deeply steeped into London and its various subcultures, from 90’s rave to popular culture to grime as well as pop culture, so it only makes sense to do it here.
