THE FASHION COLLAB:
NA-KD Fashion x Josefine HJ
Influencer Josefine has joined forces with fashion chain NA-KD on another collection and we’re obsessed with the tiger stripe motif – be it on a robe-like coat, a shirt or a pair of shorts. The capsule also features a range of loungewear basics, as well as smarter pieces designed to be worn in the evening.
THE TRAINER DROP:
New Balance 9060 Crystal Pink
It’s been a minute since we’ve had a New Balance trainer to get excited about – but the brand’s new pink colourway of the 9060s has arrived just in time to see you through the rest of summer. Featuring advanced technology, the shoe is constructed with a dual-density midsole with ABZORB and SBS cushioning, while the exterior boasts a baby pink tone weaved with accents of white and silver.
The Friends Experience Birmingham
Following a successful run in Paris and Brussels, the Friends Experience is making its first UK appearance in Birmingham. Fans of the show will be able to recreate their favourite scenes, celebrate some of the most iconic moments and explore recreated versions of the show’s famous sets.
THE FOODIE DESTINATION:
Spitalfields New Kiosks
Spitalfields has just unveiled its new F&B units following an 18-month renovation. The food kiosks on Lamb Street will now play host to several new independent food vendors – some of which are entering the UK market for the first time. Names to look out for include Pizza Guys, Rudie’s Jerk Shack, Dos Mas Tacos, Ebby’s Kitchen and Duck Truck.
Austin by Post Malone
Post Malone’s fifth studio album dropped this month. The singer proudly notes that he plays guitar on every track, which gives the album a slightly softer feel in comparison to his past R&B/pop-inspired records. Named Austin – the singer’s birth name – it takes a deeper, more honest turn, starting with lead single ‘Chemical’. We’d also suggest listening to his most recent interview with Alex Cooper on the podcast Call Her Daddy.

Happy Endings x Pavilion
Happy Endings, known for its epic ice-cream sandwiches, has opened a pop-up soft serve bar at Pavilion in Victoria Park. Until the end of summer, the team will add a different ice-cream flavour to its menu each week – either choose a single flavour or ask for two to be mixed in its double flavour twist machine. You can also try ice-cream sandwiches – with flavours like raspberry ripple or lemon and brown sugar sandwiched between two malt biscuits.
