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.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
