Who. What. Where?

Welcome to HUNGER’s Who. What. Where? Your one-stop shop for all the latest and greatest upcoming events and releases. Whether you’re looking for your next injection of culture or just something to freshen up your wardrobe, you’ll only find the best of it here.

First up in this week’s Who. What. Where? is Vivienne Westwood’s SUN23 collection, which launched earlier this week. The collection of shades draws on inspiration from classic and timeless sunglasses styles made famous by Hollywood’s glamorous stars of the 50s and 60s. Vintage techniques have been utilised to create feminine frames matched with a sleek, modern design style and colourways, mixing in the best of both old and new. With a focus on sustainability, the handmade acetate frames are produced from ‘acetate renew,’ made from 60% bio-based content and 40% certified recycled content – sustainability never looked so stylish. The collection is available to shop now at Vivienne Westwood boutiques worldwide and online.

Next, Cave Things – a shop that sells playful, mysterious, subversive things that are designed, drawn, written or recorded by Nick Cave – is joining up with Dover Street Market (DSM) in London for an exclusive installation. Featuring exclusive product launches, the quirky space was designed in collaboration with Cave himself and takes inspiration from him and his wife Susie’s home, which includes a lot of pink, apparently. The range of diverse products available includes apparel, homeware, prints, limited edition recordings and new items exclusive to DSM. There will also be reintroductions of sellout items from the archive and Cave’s latest children’s book, The Little Thing Is Sad. Items can also be purchased online.

Luxury fragrance brand Thameen London have announced the first scent of their Britologne Collection, titled Fanfare, inspired by Covent Garden’s flower market and created by perfumer Bruno Jovanovic. Featuring top notes of bergamot, lemon, neroli, and flower market accord, Fanfare is a lush scent perfect for the upcoming warm spring weather. The fragrance comes presented in Thameen London’s signature bottle in clear frosted glass with an eye-catching silver cap to round it all off. Thameen fragrances are available at Selfridges, Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Liberty London, and thameenfragrance.com
