Welcome to your Friday dose of WEEK - a roundup of what's dropped in the last seven days, brought to you by the Culture & Strategy team at LOVE.
Hello Kitty Goes Stateside
The first Hello kitty themed restaurant and bar has opened in California. The pink, Instagram-friendly interior has reservation only rooms, as well as casual pink bar area. Cocktails include ‘You Had Me At Hello’ and ‘Matcha Matcha’.
Paris’ first digital art exhibition: Gustav Klimt
Paris has opened its first digital art museum, L’Atelier des Lumiéres. The museum opened with a breathtaking exhibition of Gustav Klimt and other Viennese painters.
To a soundtrack of Wagner, Chopin and Beethoven, visitors are thrusted between history and technology, as art and music moves around visitors as they walk by.
Rather than crowding around one small framed painting, Klimt’s works are blown up across entire walls, ceilings and floors, elegantly set in motion.
After the success of this exhibition, Culture Spaces who designed and built the museum, has plans for another exhibition in France, as well as South Korea and the US in 2019.
Domino's free pizza gimmick goes awry
In Russia, Domino's offered 100 free pizzas a year for 100 years to customers that got a permanent tattoo of the Domino's logo "on a visible spot" on their bodies.
Russian social media was soon awash with hundreds of people looking to take advantage of the deal.
Domino’s were forced to take action after underestimating the amount of people who would actually get a tattoo, curtailing the number of accepted winners to 350.
Anya Hindmarch’s ‘Chubby Cloud’ for London Fashion Week
