Last Friday, we teamed up with our friends at END. Clothing for a very special launch event for Issue 19 of Highsnobiety Magazine. In close collaboration with the issue’s cover star Blondey McCoy, the lively post-work function was built to showcase both Blondey’s Highsnobiety cover story, and selected pieces from the new collection of his recently re-launched label THAMES.
Alongside the bold slogan tees and knitwear of his new collection, we exhibited the complete set of 24 ‘toast-portraits’ from Blondey’s 2019 art piece Epiphanies, in the space that would then play host to an intimate live interview between the man himself and Highsnobiety’s Editor-at-Large, Christopher Morency. With music provided by Highsnobiety Soundsystem, the upstairs of END.’s Soho store was transformed into a classically British living room — right down to floral wallpaper and Grandma’s armchair, in reference to the hometown inspiration Blondey often draws from in his apparel designs and artwork.
