It’s time for your Friday dose of WEEK. A look back at what’s dropped over the last seven days.
Glossier Boston Pop-Up
Glossier’s third pop-up this year has landed in Boston, inviting visitors to go explore and discover the range through a campus-like experience inspired by the city’s culture.
Located in Seaport, the pop-up features several “houses” dedicated to different pillars of the brand such as makeup, fragrance and skincare.
As you’d expect, shoppers are free to test and shop the range, and can also buy limited-edition merch available exclusively in-store.
Funds raised will be donated to Bagly: a youth-led, adult-supported social support group committed to social justice and creating, sustaining and advocating for programmes and policies that support the LGBTQ youth community.
Scotland is famous for its whisky. Brandy connoisseurs naturally go wild for Cognac. And now, a team of British scientists hope to place another spirit on the map: vodka from Chernobyl.
With the apt name, Atomik, the “artisan vodka” has been made from grain and water taken from an area of Ukraine that was abandoned following the nuclear reactor meltdown that contaminated much of Europe back in 1986.
According to Professor Smith of the University of Portsmouth, “Atomik is no more radioactive than any other vodka. We asked our friends at Southampton University, who have an amazing radio-analytical laboratory, to see if they could find any radioactivity. They couldn’t find anything - everything was below their limit of detection”.
Interestingly, all funds raised will be donated to help families in Ukraine who’re still largely economically affected by the disaster.
Coca-Cola x KITH
After a series of teasers began emerging last month, KITH has finally revealed its Coca-Cola capsule collection.
Taking inspiration from the Coca-Cola archive and the Hawaiian lifestyle, key items include windbreakers, T-shirts, crop-tops, bucket hats and swimsuits.
The lineup also includes partnerships from the likes of Garrett Leight for eyewear, Channel Island for surfboards, and Mitchell & Ness for headwear.
To hero the launch, KITH has launched a pop-up store in Honolulu where consumers can shop the entire range.
teamLab Borderless becomes the world’s most visited art gallery
This week, teamLab officially become the most visited art museum in the world. With two different art museums based in Tokyo - teamLab Borderless and teamLab Planets - the art collective aim to explore new relationships between humans and nature through digital technology.
Since the opening of both museums only one year ago, they’ve attracted an impressive 3.5 million visitors comprising of people from over 160 countries.
TeamLab Borderless alone attracted 2.3 million visitors, surpassing the number of attendees at Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum (2.1 million visitors), Barcelona’s Picasso Museum (948,000 visitors) and Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres (1.1 million visitors).
Both museums have an impressively influential fanbase. Think Kanye West, Kim K, Hailey Bieber and Winnie Harlow (to name a few).
WEEK has been compiled this week by our PR & Marketing Manager, Emily.
