New This Week
What’s hot and happening this week – 24th June – 30th June
TRENDING NOW: JUMPSUITS
There’s something so brilliantly effortless about the jumpsuit, the new hero piece for the office, events and everything in-between. With the weather hardly playing fair, the throw-on-and-go nature of the jumpsuit allows for an extra few minutes in bed – one piece maketh the outfit after all– whilst the design is the perfect combination of lightweight fabrics and modest lengths to see you through all weather related misgivings. With tailored fits at once refreshing office wear and proving an alternative to classic occasion dresses, relaxed all-in-one silhouettes scream downtime drinks and weekends on the go. Basically, invest now.
Bone Daddies, the brainchild of acclaimed chef Ross Shonhan and got- for Londoners in search of modern Japanese experience, has come to Old Street. Why is this so great? It’s next to Warehouse HQ and we’re a little too excited about it. Passionate about Japan, Ross wanted a home for his version of Japanese food and contemporary culture, created specifically for the city. Combining original Japanese dishes with a unique twist, Bone Daddies has some of the best ramen in town, not to mention the dainty gyozas and delicious sticks of considered fried goodness, all set to some good old fashioned Rock’n’Roll. Your next catch-up with the girls? Take it here.
Bone Daddies now open at 211 Old Street, EC1 9NR
Bad news, Glastonbury goers – it looks set to be a washout like no other. Each and every year, we all hope for just a slither of sunshine to see us through and each and every year, we are denied. However, that doesn’t stop Glasto from being one of the key highlights in the summer calendar and an essential summer jaunt. Wellies at the ready? Good, then prepare to get lost in Michael Eavis’ musical imaginarium, wandering from the wild Silver Hayes dance fields, via Arcadia, to make it to the stone circle for sunrise. Whilst Adele will be crooning on the Pyramid Stage and New Order will be attempting to drown her out from The Other Stage, there’s more to this festival experience than just music and flooding conditions. The best way to discover it? On your feet.
from 24th – 26th June
This is the story of a 14-year-old girl who joins a Manson Family-like cult in the 1960s – hooked already? We thought you might be. Emma Cline’s The Girls maps a young woman’s coming of age, that time between childishness and adulthood where you strive to break free, to defy and to do everything in her ability to feel. Narrated by Evie Boyd, who looks back at a time just after her parents’ divorce where a series of abuses and abandonments pushed her so desperately to join a cult. Disenchanted by her days, this group are glamorized as she becomes the model devotee. Trust us when we tell you this – it’s only a matter of time before this makes it to silver screen. Read it here first.

Swishes of colour, thumping music, enthusiastic cheers and the kind of feel-good vibes that money can’t buy, it must be time for Pride. The huge annual parade that celebrates the LGBT communities both in the UK and further afield marches through central London once again and this year it’s bigger than ever. This year’s theme is #nofilter, encouraging a ‘just be you’ mentality. So wear whatever you like, march to your own beat and sing at the top of your lungs.
London Pride, 25th June, Trafalgar Square
