Welcome to The Wick

— Katy Wickremesinghe
Dear All,

Happy London Fashion Week – wishing luck to creative London seeing innovative fashion design moving between physical catwalk and digital Tik-Tokking as LFW explores new hybrid models.

Speculation is rising as Jeff Koons announced that he will be entering the NFT market. Details of the works are yet to be released but it might be the biggest drop since Beeple’s.

Hair scarves, hats and driving gloves will be donned as classic car enthusiasts flock to Goodwood Revival this weekend where Bay Garnett will be presiding over a glamourous car boot sale and Jenson Button will be racing. If hot wheels don’t move you, head down to the Chelsea Flower Show next week for glorious blooms via the Frieze Sculpture show that is newly installed in Regents Park. This year’s edition brings together works of international artists including Ibrahim El-Salahi, Isamu Noguchi, Solange Pessoa, and Rose Wylie.

Meanwhile, Berlin Art Week will be attracting fans to its robust schedule of events, performances, talks and shows across the major galleries and collections. As the leaves start to turn their hues golden in the style of a Rebecca Manson sculpture, we wish you a happy weekend.

With best wishes from me and the KTW family,
The Wick - Home
