YrStore x Topman collaboration @ Topman Flagship / available instore now

TIME AND PLACE 

Christmas Opening Times
Monday – Saturday 9am – 10pm
Sunday 9am – 6pm

Topman have hooked up with innovative tech-specialists turned fashion brand YrStore so that customers can now design and create bespoke t-shirts in store at the Oxford Circus Flagship branch. YrStore had a successful summer pop-up shop in Boxpark Shoreditch, before moving on to Liberty’s. We went to check out their collaborative launch with Topman yesterday to see what all the hype is about.

You can now visit YrStore at Topman to create your own unique items in minutes using YrStore’s interactive touch-pods, which look like giant iPads. Once you’ve finished your one-of-a-kind creation, the specialists will transfer it onto a t-shirt – all using the world’s only live all-over digital printing process. YrStore will soon be bringing their printing process to other garments including sweatshirts, skirts and dresses.

The exclusive print designs are all created and curated by Topman to reflect the key AW13 trends, plus the YrTopman’s design archive will continually be updated as the collaboration continues.

YrStore’s Tim Williams said this about the YrTopman collaboration:

“It’s a dream to work with Topman designers and clothing especially launching during such exciting season for retail. Yr believe the future of fashion is in carefully curated live garment creation, we work with the most desirable artwork archives, designs and garments to create truly unique fashion that, whilst individual, is always recognisably Yr.”

A Nos Amours Presents Fellini – Satyricon @ Curzon Mayfair / Tuesday 10 September 2013

TIME AND PLACE 

Screening 6.15pm

@ Curzon Mayfair
38 Curzon Street, W1J 7TY

Tickets from £17.50 – £25.00 

A Nos Amours’ is a collective founded by filmmakers Joanna Hogg and Adam Roberts dedicated to programming over-looked, under-exposed or especially potent cinema. This time ‘A Nos Amours’ presents a newly restored 35mm Cinemascope copy of Fellini-Satyricon by Federico Fellini (1969), as supervised by the film’s original cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno at the Cineteca Nazionale in Rome with the contribution of Dolce & Gabbana, presented by Ka Studio and Edoardo Ponti.

A place that might be ancient Rome recreated and torn down over a couple of delirious hours by Federico Fellini. The Latin text that provides a spring board, a fragmentary account of debauchery, dissolution and sexual adventure during the reign of Nero, is shaken and poured out as the most intoxicating cinematic cocktail the world has ever seen. Bizarre, jarring, angular, operatic, sordid, stunningly beautiful. Superficially it is a historical pageant in full sail, but also a dream of the past, buffeted by modernist strategies.

The Good Bad Movie Club present: Super Mario Bros plus DJs Super Scratch Bros @ The Prince Charles Cinema / Friday 6th September 2013

TIME AND PLACE 

Screening at 9pm
DJs from 8.40pm

The Prince Charles Cinema,
7 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BP

Tickets £7.50 / members £5

THIS AIN’T NO GAME! IT’S A LIVE ACTION THRILL RIDE!

The Prince Charles Cinema are bringing the Super Mario Bros. movie back for one last* big-screen outing as part of The Good Bad Movie Club. As always, the PCC will be presenting a selection of hand-picked oddball trailers before the film, but you get a Friday night bonus level: there will also be a 20min DJ set packed full of computer game jams courtesy of the Super Scratch Bros.

This is good guys vs bad guys to save a princess – an age-old story, except it’s got King Koopa in it played by Dennis Hopper, and the Mario brothers are the obvious duo of Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Crazy. This 1993 film is literally a childhood classic for us here at InFormed London, in all it’s awful glory. Check out the trailer below:

* = never say never, right?

DocDays: The Great Hip Hop Hoax/plus Q&A with Jeanie Finlay @ Curzon Soho / Wednesday 4th September 2013

TIME AND PLACE 

Screening at 6.30pm followed by Q&A

@ Curzon Soho

Tickets £13.75

Californian hip-hop duo Silibil n’ Brains were going to be massive. What Sony didn’t know was that the pair were students from Scotland, with fake American accents and made-up identities. When Billy and his rap partner Gavin Bain’s promising Scottish rap act was laughed off the stage by hysterical A&R people who dubbed them “the rapping Proclaimers”, they dusted themselves down and reinvented themselves as West Coast Homeboys. Sony signed them for a record deal, and over a period of two years, they lived the dream – touring with D12, hanging backstage at the Brits, playing Brixton Academy, writing, recording and living up to the image of the loud-mouth rap stars they told everyone they were. No-one knew or even suspected that they were in fact just a couple of college boys from Dundee with accents they had learnt from MTV.

The Great Hip Hop Hoax is a film about truth, lies and the legacy of faking everything in the desperate pursuit of fame. The screening will be followed by a discussion with director Finlay.
