Clarks is tapping into their roots thanks to their latest campaign, which looks to celebrate the legacy of the underground Manchester rave scene. Shot by director Glenn Kitson, the brand reveals a film titled Sunset: A Clarks In Manchester Film, which highlights the pivotal role Clarks played as the go-to footwear for ravers in the rainy city. And In a new collection which accompanies the film, the iconic Wallabee shoe shines in the strobe light, landing in three vivid designs, each dedicated to individuality and freedom. Meanwhile, this easter, the label are teaming up with the Museum of Youth Culture to showcase some of their archive photography at the Clarks Originals Manchester store. Peep the full film from Clarks below and get yourself in the raving spirit.

Next up, iconic skate brand Supreme has teamed up with MM6 Maison Margiela for Spring 2024. The collection is the latest in a long line of high-end collaborations with Supreme that include the likes of Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Comme des Garçon, Rimowa and even Tiffany’s. As with every collaboration, Supreme takes a playful approach to the luxury house codes. In this instance, the partnership offers a fresh take on the soft tailoring and deconstruction of MM6 through patchwork designs on pieces like the faux fur coat and varsity jacket, vintage collegiate logos that read “Margiela Six, Supreme, 1994, Paris” on hoodies and sweatshirts. Elsewhere a white hoodie features a softly embossed Supreme logo on the chest and the MM6 numbered logo on the sleeve, alongside a white wrapped Kryptonite Chain, and a traditionally red Supreme skateboard. The star of the collection is a bottle blonde wig with dark roots in a plastic MM6 bag, referencing Martin Margiela’s childhood in a salon with his hairdresser father. Supreme x MM6 Maison Margiela will be available to shop from 28th March here.

Hennessy has linked up with South London’s newest live music venue and food hub, The Queen of the South and cultural platform Cloud X to celebrate the individuals behind London’s growing music scene. Whilst many London music venues are either under threat or have closed their doors, ‘The Queen of the South’, has created an inclusive, dynamic and up-close-and-personal live music experience that celebrates the local culture and community. Throughout April the ‘South London Renaissance’ will run every Friday throughout April celebrating the brand-new music venue with the best Hennessy serves and a line-up of London’s rising artists & DJs, including the likes of Bawo, Etta Bond, Finn Foxell, House of Pharaohs, DJ Oneman and more.

Finally, if you’re in need of some culinary excellence this bank holiday weekend, modern Chinese fine-dining restaurant Gouqi (pronounced “goji”) should more than fit the bill. The restaurant draws its name from an island in the East China Sea, famed for its picturesque fishing villages and eponymous goji berry shrubs – and is the debut solo venture from Tong Chee Hwee, formerly Executive Head Chef at seven-time Michelin-starred Hakkasan Group. Launched in February 2023, the restaurant recently celebrated its one year anniversary, and offers highlights such as a Steamed Royal Dim Sum Platter; Crispy Eel Cheung Fun; Honey-Glazed Iberico Char Siu with Salted Egg Yolk; and a signature Peking Duck – served two ways and carved tableside.
