Following their wonderful collaboration with Palace, footwear staple UGG is keeping the momentum going with its first collaboration with New York-based retailer Opening Ceremony. In celebration of Opening Ceremony’s 20th anniversary, the collab sees the Talisman Slipper reimagined with an exaggerated buckle, chunky platform and exposed fuzzy shearling. Collaborative branding appears on the heels, while heightened soles make the slippers the perfect eye-catching footwear you need to add an extra bit of oomph to your summer fits. The collection is available to shop now.

Mark your calendars for this Friday (19th May) as global hitmaker Lewis Capaldi is set to release his highly anticipated album, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent – which features his UK number one hits ‘Pointless,’ ‘Wish You The Best,’ and ‘Forget Me.’ The new album will see Capaldi put his raw, emotionally-charged lyrics on full display once more, as well as his signature powerful vocals, of course. It’s set to be yet another landmark year for Capaldi, who enlisted Max Martin, Malay, and longtime collaborator Phil Plested to help craft his latest effort. We’d recommend having a packet of tissues on standby when listening.

BRIT and Grammy-nominated artist Kamille is back with another banger – this time in the form of the 80s-tinged track ‘Muscle Memory.’ The track, featuring the legendary Nile Rodgers, is a welcome hit of nostalgia and an ode to those moments of self-reflection we will have when reminiscing on lost love. Despite the sombre subject, it’s a cut with a groove that’ll leave you running to the dance-floor as soon as it begins – even if it’s with a tear in your eye. The track was entirely self-written and produced by Kamille and has us all incredibly excited for her debut solo EP, which is slated for release later this year.
