HUNGER’s MVP of the week

Welcome to HUNGER's Most Valuable Player, the place to find the best things to buy, watch, do or listen to each week. Forget about the hype, we want to separate what's hot, what's not, and what needs to be on your radar…

As the temperature continues to plummet, we’re sure some of you are due a much-needed wardrobe revamp. And what better way to stay stylish while keeping toasty than with The North Face’s second collaboration with legendary artist KAWS? The collection features abstract patterns with new tonal colour expressions and includes footwear, accessories, luggage and a variety of men’s and women’s styles. The collab will be available at The North Face stores and online on October 25th.

The sustainable beauty brand, We Are Paradoxx, have just launched their new Bio-Tech Growth collection, utilising their patented Trioplexx technology which will provide your locks with the care and attention they deserve. The new technology provides a powerful complex of actives that stimulate the scalp and hair follicles to encourage healthy hair growth and strengthens hair bonds to reduce breakage and add fullness. The standout in the collection is no doubt the innovative Advanced Scalp Serum which is designed to make hair look and feel thicker, fuller and stronger.

Dutch label Daily Paper just unveiled their FW22 Holiday collection, celebrating the powers of community. The collection features a selection of cosy cotton, knitwear and puffer jackets. Celebrating the brand’s family ethos, the collection features a range of family portrait artwork emblazoned onto a range of hoodies, T-shirts and two-pieces, illustrating the importance of collectivity and community. The collection is available for purchase from the brand’s website alongside its flagship stores in Amsterdam, London and New York.

Iconic stylist, fashion editor and photographer Katie Grand has released her latest book, Tears and Tearsheets, which looks back on her wonderful career. It provides a celebration of her work, collaborations and is a stark reminder of why she’s still inspiring fashion enthusiasts to this day. Grand was Dazed’s first fashion director, going on to found the magazines Pop, Love and Perfect — pages from which make up the book.

This week’s MVP belongs to London-based rapper Loyle Carner, who today released his third studio album, hugo. In what is his most ambitious record to date, the rapper showcases his versatility alongside a helping of poignant lyricism. Throughout the 10-track project, Carner effortlessly goes from glossy neo-soul to thumping boom-bap hip hop, tackling everything from strained relationships, to identity and race. ‘Blood on my Nikes’ offers us a haunting glimpse of a murder Carner witnessed while still a teenager and its gloomy storytelling and accompanying horns make it one of many standouts on the album. This is Carner’s most polished record to date and yet another fantastic addition to an already impressive discography.
