We like our eyewear to have a serious impact,
and these rectangular acetate frames by French
label Emmanuelle Khanh will be sure to turn heads.
Eurovision fans around the world were
flabbergasted when the United Kingdom not
only showcased a catchy song at this year’s
event, but also came second place. However,
what caught KOIBIRD’s attention was the
intricate pearl and beading work on singer Sam Ryder’s outfit. Designed by stylist Luke Jefferson Day in collaboration with @jennykingembroidery,
the suit took over 200 hours to make and
utilised 15,000 pearls, beads and magic gems. Extra points if you spotted the beaded
sunflower symbolising support for Ukraine.
An Al Fresco brunch – featuring South American fare with vegan desserts like Guatemalan chocolate mousse – on The Mandrake’s Jurema Terrace is the perfect finale to a busy Sunday in the city. Cocktail wise, we can’t wait to try The Blue Lotus – a cool concoction of Grey Goose, raspberry, bergamot, lemon, Veuve Clicquot,
blue lotus and passion flower.
Alma Berrow’s ceramics are undeniably cool.
From stubbed-out cigarettes on ashtrays to
miniature pills, they make for excellent Instagram fodder. Now, a new exhibition at Lamb Gallery
(her first solo show there) entitled No More Than Five – with eight ceramic scenes – will explore Berrow’s love of checkers, a game she has been playing since she was 16. However, this will not
be a static behind-glass show – guests will be
invited to play the game, and there are rumours
of a serious prize for the winner.
Private view 25.05 6pm-8pm,
Exhibition date 26.05 - 18.06.2022,
LAMB Gallery 32 St. George Street
It’s always a good day for a white wedding, but thanks to Chloë Sevigny and Kourtney Kardashian breaking the internet with their non-traditional wedding dress choices, it’s an even better day – or perhaps year – for loved-up fashion fans around the world. Sevigny went all-out Victoriana corpse bride for her after-party with a silk and lace corset and matching bodysuit, while Kardashian eschewed a long gown for the miniest of mini Dolce and Gabbana off-the rack dresses complete with a singular golden heart charm.
New podcast Unreal is aptly named – it’s unreal good and addictive. Hosted by journalists Pandora Sykes and Sirin Kale, the show takes listeners through Reality TV culture and its history.
