Skims Menswear

Kim Kardashian is getting into men’s underwear. Yup, her Skims brand has dropped its first menswear edit. Boxers, briefs, tanks, t-shirts and socks are all here and you’ve got a choice of three collections to explore: Cotton is for everyday; Stretch promises a perfect fit; and Sport is for workouts. Worried about leaving your tried-and-trusted Y-fronts behind? Big-name US sports stars like Nick Bosa have already made the leap and Skims has just been named the official underwear partner of the NBA.

Get Date Night Right


From Thursday 9th November, Seabird – the rooftop seafood restaurant at The Hoxton, Southwark – will be transformed into Snowbird. The ‘70s-inspired terrace has been decked out with Slim Aarons prints, giant installations, and an illuminated arch made from white lights. Head on up for Grey Goose cocktails and new Mediterranean dishes, like baked oysters with chorizo and lemon; smoked oxtail croquettes with aioli; hot seafood platters with oysters, mussels, scallops and tiger prawns; and baked lobster and crab pumpkin pie topped with caviar. Finish with an ‘Arctic Espresso’ – a mini espresso martini served in shot glasses made from ice.

Last Chance

Prada Reporter at Selfridges

Prada is the current occupant of The Corner Shop in Selfridges, but not for much longer. The Italian fashion house has partnered with photography collective Magnum Photos to create an exhibition exploring the relationship between humankind and the natural world. Featuring 150 images, the display is part of Prada’s new ‘Reporter’ project to showcase its approach to design. Visitors will also find an exclusive selection of clothing and accessories inspired by the shots – think camo prints, layering and expedition pieces. We’ve got our eye on the utility jackets.

400 Oxford Street, West End, W1A 1AB; until Sat 11th Nov

Support A Good Cause

Daks x Royal Trinity Hospice

British fashion house Daks is raising funds for the Royal Trinity Hospice. Its new ‘Take Back’ scheme is a free add-on to any Daks purchase online. Request a donation bag at checkout and you will be sent one, which you can fill with second-hand pieces to be delivered (free of charge) to the hospice team. You can donate any pre-worn item from designer labels or high street brands. Daks’s AW23 collection is worth checking out anyway for its timeless shirts, trousers and jackets.

Hit The Theatre


This new production opens on Friday 10th November and marks the first time an Ibsen has been shown at Shakespeare’s Globe. Ghosts is about family secrets and forbidden desire. Plagued by the ugly truth of her late husband’s legacy, Helene vows to erase the past and start again. Ignorant to the reality of his father’s character, her son Osvald returns home to face an uncertain future. When the ember of an illicit romance stands to ruin Helene’s plans to play happy family, she is forced to make a decision that threatens to engulf what’s left of her – and her son’s – life completely. Tickets start from £5.

End The Weekend Right

Madame Pigg at Islington Arts Club

Dalston restaurant Madame Pigg closed its doors during pandemic, so we were pleased to hear it is taking over the kitchen at Islington Arts Club for the next six weekends. On Saturdays, diners can choose from dishes like porchetta buns, deep-fried prawn baps and proper chips, while Sundays are all about its famous roast dinners. Choose from beef with horseradish and yorkshires, pork with apple sauce, and chicken with bread sauce – all served with cauliflower and truffle cheese, pigs in blankets and braised red cabbage. Leave space for apple tarte tatin.

235 Upper Street, Islington, N1 1RU; until 17th December
