Kate Moss stars in a new video version of ‘The Wonder of You’, with the unmistakable voice of Elvis Presley and a new arrangement. The beautiful fashion model croons the ballad, posing and wearing outfits inspired by four of the King’s most iconic looks; such as a black leather jumpsuit inspired by the outfit Presley wore at his 1968 comeback TV special.

This is not the first time that Kate Moss has acted as a video star. She was a beautiful corpse in Johnny Cash’s ‘Delia’s Gone’; she has also collaborated with Elton John, Marianne Faithfull, and Paul McCartney.

The film, directed by Vaughan Arnell, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with acclaimed producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick. The album features the King’s most dramatic original performances, augmented with lush new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

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?
