Earlier this year, Giorgio Armani showcased the Aldo Fallai at Armani/Silos in Milan, and now you can catch it in London. The exhibition is dedicated to photographer Aldo Fallai, who worked closely with Giorgio Armani throughout his career. It will be presented with a series of frames, each displaying 26 images and four infographics, and will be available to view from May 4 until June 2. If you’re in London and like the sound of this, head to the Giorgio Armani store on Sloane Street.

Snatch some archive Stüssy in Manchester

Stüssy Archive offers some of the hardest, hard-to-get Stüssy pieces around. And, after a previous stint in Margate for its last pop-up, some Laguna Beach cool is coasting its way to the streets of Manchester. We already know it’s going to be sick. The event will be held in the NoMa neighbourhood from Friday May 3 until Monday May 6. 

Pick up some Ruben’s Reubens goodness in Peckham 

Peckham Arches is gearing up for summer by launching a collaboration with Ruben’s Reubens, the Brixton-born master of meat and fish smoking. He’ll be bringing the heat by taking over the open kitchen with the help of his trusty signature smokers. To wash it down, there’ll be some solid cocktails on the go. 

You can eat Heinz and Morley’s at home 

Remember how everyone lapped up the Morley’s and Heinz collab? Well, now it’s back by popular demand and available to shop on supermarket shelves in the form of bottled Heinz x Morely’s Chicken Sauce. The sauciest link-up in town is available now, and to top it off, there will be a special Heinz x Morley’s menu at participating stores. 

Check out Stüssy’s brand-new Milan Chapter store 

Stüssy has set its sights on Milan for its latest Chapter store, and as you’d expect, it looks sick.

While no opening date has been announced yet, keep an eye out for updates on Stüssy’s socials for more information.

If there’s one thing we love about summer, it’s the food. And, Wagamama is getting in on the sun-soaked action by packing its menu with a load of new food and drink, including the Saku Saku soba and tataki dishes of thinly cut beef. Some extra freshness is thrown into the mix with the Thai beef salad, and for something sweet, check out the new crispy momo meringue cake or baked yuzu cheesecake.
