It will come as no surprise to regular readers to learn that SEEN loves Vodka, DKNY and Dazed Magazine. Thus, three of our favourites were combined to stunning effect at an exclusive party in Shoreditch (where else?). DKNY and Dazed magazine were in the East End to celebrate the London launch of the #DxKxNxYx acronym collection. The sweaters and tees feature the acronyms Designers Know Nothing Yet, Dazed Kids New York and Don’t Knock New York with cocktails by Crystal Head Vodka.

In attendance were DKNY creative directors Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, Jefferson Hack, Lottie Moss, Ryan Lo, Nabinah Iqbal, Jess Maybury, Bella Howard, Elizabeth Jane Bishop, Naomi Shimada, Ella Hope Merryweather, Greta Bellamacina, Niall Underwood, Caroline Brown and Dazed’s creative director Robbie Spencer, and editor-in-chief Isabella Burley.

Crystal Head Vodka provided bespoke cocktails, including Elderflower Collins: Crystal Head, Organic Elderflower Cordial, San Pellegrino Limonata; Mule: Crystal Head, ginger beer, lime, and NYC Fizz: Crystal Head, raspberry & strawberry puree, fresh lemon juice, topped with fizz. Make SEEN’s a large one. We can’t resist vodka that’s been filtered three times through Herkimer diamonds.

#DAZEDKIDSNEWYORK featured a lighting concept by visual artist and creative director Tupac Matir. The party featured a live performance by Nadia Rose and DJs Throwing Shade (Nabihah Iqbal), The Extortionists (Dao-Yi Chow and Ibe Soliman) and Siobhan Bell and was attended by an eclectic mix of people from the fashion, music, art and entertainment industries.

The sweatshirts were launched at New York Fashion Week with a limited 300-piece collection and fans include Ellie Goulding, Miroslava Duma, Jourdan Dunn, P Diddy and Yasmin Sewell. The collection will be in stores worldwide at the end of June, including Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Brown Thomas and DKNY in Old Bond Street. To celebrate the launch, DKNY released 100 limited edition #DAZEDKIDSNEWYORK tees, designed by Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, to guests who attended the party.

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
