Gosha Rubchinskiy: Top Man

Russian fashion designer and photographer Gosha Rubchinskiy has shot Topman’s Christmas advertising campaign and video. A London warehouse-like setting with models posing against rough, exposed brick walls or on broken, uneven pavement was the scenario chosen for this famed Moscow-based, post-Soviet, streetwear designer’s shots. The video also keeps Gosha's industrial aesthetic alive, with male models showing off grungy, dishevelled looks in new coats, jackets, and shirts.

Russian fashion designer and photographer Gosha Rubchinskiy has shot Topman’s Christmas advertising campaign and video. A London warehouse-like setting with models posing against rough, exposed brick walls or on broken, uneven pavement was the scenario chosen for this famed Moscow-based, post-Soviet, streetwear designer’s shots. The video also keeps Gosha’s industrial aesthetic alive, with male models showing off grungy, dishevelled looks in new coats, jackets, and shirts.

The unveiling of these visuals, which are styled by Max Pearmain, comes just after the launch of Rubchinskiy’s first perfume and an accompanying photo book, which brings together a series of photographs he took in Spain earlier this year. The 31-year-old Russian designer, who owns his own label and has made a massive name for himself in menswear, also does great photography. Check out Gosha Rubchinskiy’s talent with a camera here.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
