Cassandra Yap - 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'

For the second year running, Film4 has commissioned Dalston's Print Club London studio to exhibit companion screen prints to their Summer Screen line-up.

As one of London's most anticipated annual events, Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House will return tonight for its season of beautifully-staged outdoor cinematics. For 14 star-covered nights, Film4 will screen a selection of titles from the beloved to the unseen, with this year marking an anniversary celebration of the event's 10th year.

In conjunction with this, Print Club London will be exhibiting artists' screen-printed re-imaginings of the titles' existing posters, some of which are iconic in themselves. The Dalston-based studio will be delivering the screen-printed bread for this deliciously cinematic sandwich daily at Somerset House's West Wing from July 31st until August 25th, with opening hours extended until 9pm on screening nights. 

All prints are limited edition and created exclusively for the occasion by some of the studio's most popular artists and are available to buy for £45 at the exhibition and online. For further details on opening hours and for a full list of exhibiting artists and their online-viewable and purchasable artworks, please visit the Somerset House website.

 


Hammer Festival London

For all you horror fans who can't bear to let go of that spookily festive feeling, London is playing host to over 2 weeks worth of camp retro horror celebrations by way of the Hammer London Festival. Hamming it up from October 28th - November 15th in three locations (Idea Generation Gallery, Lexi Cinema and Curzon Soho,) the HFL will pay homage to the golden age of British horror with a selection of screenings and an exhibition of previously unseen photos, prints and artwork, as well as a detailed look at the Hammer legacy (hopefully they'll skip past the studio's bloodless resurrection.)

Check out the exhibits at the RIBA award-winning space that is the Idea Generation Gallery.

Screenings will be held at the Lexi Cinema and Curzon Soho.

(Please note: although the Lexi Cinema is screening the decidedly horrific sounding Sing-A-Long Wizard of Oz, this does NOT constitute part of the festival's output.)


e.g...made in London

If I were to sum up my personal style with three words it would probably be tailored, tomboy and funky. If I were to sum up my personal style with one label, then London based e.g... would certainly be a contender.

The hot new label is the brainchild of Emma Griffith’s, a lady with an impressive CV, previously working with Alexander McQueen and Boudicca. The debut collection is an arresting mix of structured silhouettes and luxurious fabrics with silk jersey and silk taffeta prominently featured.  I particularly like their trousers with back vents, the shape-shifting black trench, the blue silk taffeta skirt and their jackets (all three of them!)
