Starting this week’s Who. What. Where?, we bring exciting news of an early contender for collaboration of the year. Iconic streetwear brand Stüssy is partnering with Timberland to bring us a collection of fine winter-ready footwear. The collection features a black pair of boots topped with a smooth leather finish and thick black sole. Meanwhile, the second pair comes in Timberland’s classic wheat colourway, with a fuzzy textured canvas and Stüssy imprinted tongue. The boots are also crafted with GORE-TEX waterproofing, ensuring you don’t encounter any soggy feet in the worsening weather. The collaboration is set to drop Friday 13th, on the Stüssy and Timberland official websites and in select Dover Street Market stores at 10am.
Next up, we have rising British streetwear brand Unknown, who are gearing up to release their latest collection, continuing their upward trajectory. The brand’s latest combines style with elements of protection against this week’s recurring theme – the dreaded winter weather. Cosy puffer jackets and vests appearing in baby blue and pink shades are the standouts, while oversized tees and bucket hats are also included. Rounding out the eye-catching collection is a beige and off-white varsity-style jacket with dagger, numerical and brand name patches. The collection will be available here tonight at 8pm.
The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) has just announced the full lineup for their huge upcoming party, P-R-E-S-E-N-T, marking their 75th anniversary. Hybrid audio-visual experience across music, performance and moving image, are being brought to life by a selection of seven experimental artists. Featuring emotive, multi-sensory live sets, the event is set to be one for the ages. The seven artists and DJs who will be fronting the event include: Sons of Simeon, SKY H1 & Mika Oki, COLD, Nexcyia, Iceboy Violet, and Nadine Noor. The event will take place 8pm on February 1st and tickets are available to purchase here.
Closing out this week’s segment is genre-bending musician Chiiild, who has recently blessed us with his latest single, ‘Good For Now’ – featuring legendary Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Lucky Daye. The ethereal cut sees the two stars serve up an offering of rich vocals over an atmospheric, acoustic-led production. The two artists previously collaborated on ‘Compassion’ on Daye’s 2022 Grammy-nominated album Candydrip – and the pair’s winning formula certainly continues on their latest offering. The track will appear on Chiiild’s forthcoming album Better Luck in the Next Life, set for release on March 3rd.
