Katharine Hamnett x Selfridges Project Ocean Capsule Collection, 2011

Podcast: Where Should We Begin?
Where should we begin, questioning podcast? With our astronomical student loan repayments? With millionaires telling us we can’t afford homes due to our crippling avocado debts? With the fact that a woman can’t take an emotional support peacock on a plane anymore?? We don’t know loads about this podcast other than it “takes you into the antechamber of our most intimate moments so that we might learn, explore and experience alongside the couples who have been gracious enough to let us in”. Pray the Trump/Stormy Daniels episode never materialises.

Season 2 is available on Audible .

The September Issues, Issue 001 (Green Girl)

Trendy magazine: The September Issues
A very weighty copy of new magazine The September Issues landed on our desk last week. A biannual print magazine edited, photographed and produced solely by women, it intends to give back to the world, each issue sponsoring a specific organisation that supports women (all proceeds from this one are donated to Planned Parenthood in the United States). Weighs an absolute ton too.

The September Issues is out now .

Event: Hyde Park Book Club’s second birthday
Up in Leeds, “events-led, pan-arts creative-hub” Hyde Park Book Club are celebrating two years of heavily-hyphenated support for local artists with a week of birthday events. Happenings include an evening of local women in jazz, a scratch night with Red Ladder’s Chris O’Connor and a political discussion with Leeds Independent Socialists. We’re nothing if not eclectic, readers.

5 -- 11 February, Hyde Park Book Club , Leeds.

Eddie Peake, White Man Sort Yourself Out, 2017

Art: Eddie Peake, He Xiangyu and Andreas Gursky
And what a load of absolute art this is. Eddie Peake, He Xiangyu and Andreas Gursky chucked together at White Cube’s Bermondsey branch like a multi-cuisine buffet restaurant. We’re particularly looking forward to Eddie Peake’s Concrete Pitch, a recreation of the bare, concrete recreation ground in Finsbury Park, North London, where the artist grew up.

6 February, White Cube Bermondsey, London.


Exhibition: T-shirt: Cult -- Culture -- Subversion
Charting the history of the world’s most popular item of clothing now. From men’s undergarment to luxury fashion item (a cursory glance at Hypebeast reveals the average t-shirt cost to be approximately £462), the humble tee has the ability to broadcast who we are and who we want to be. If you want to be cool like us, you can get yourself an i-D one here (£35 for cash).

9 February, Fashion and Textile Museum , London.


Congealed lump: Fatberg
The last remaining piece of the enormous fatberg discovered under London’s streets goes on show at the Museum of London this week. Sucked from the Victorian sewers of Whitechapel, it takes the form of a congealed lump of fat, sanitary napkins, wet wipes, condoms, diapers and similar items. Whether it will receive a full state visit, as originally offered, is yet to be determined.

9 February -- 1 July, Museum of London , London.

Film: Groundhog Day
And finally, 12 February marks the 25th anniversary of Groundhog Day, Harold Ramis’ 1993 classic starring Bill Murray as a weatherman doomed to spend ten thousand years reliving the same thing over and over again.
