London events: David David presents an evening with Gary Card, and more
It’s been a week of announcements and invitations: most importantly the schedule for the first ever London Fashion Week for men. Billed as London Collections: Men, and actually happening over a weekend, it’s been announced that alongside the usual sterling selection of British menswear talent (and the rest) a few international colossi have deigned to visit our rainy shores. On this, much more to come but at least one name on the schedule has me considering blood money to get within the walls of said show.
Less monolithic but no less exciting, a lot of smaller events have been announcing themselves in my Inbox this week. I don’t normally feature events for the sake of it but as at least two of these are fashion related, so bear with.
Thursday 26 April
1. David David presents an evening with Gary Card
First up, designer David David (he of the colour spectrum print) is hosting an evening with Gary Card showcasing 13 of the Hockney-mini-me set designer’s portraits in their new Covent Garden pop-up.
2. Oliver Spencer talks in Soho
Somewhat studious designer Oliver Spencer is hosting a talk about his craft at his Soho Store, I’m hoping he can hear himself speak over the sound of bespectacled lads clinking bottles of (sponsor) Saint’s beer.
3. Static PV at Whisper Gallery, W1
Totally un-fashion related but no less fabulous for it, I had a sneak preview of this new exhibition a few weeks ago and loved the layered plexiglass, swinging 60s’ness of it all.
