Taking down statues has nothing to do with erasing our past. They’re a way of convincing ourselves that we can listen to history as we deem fit, rather than as it actually unfolded.
The reusable mug – a small act of defiance in a disposable culture. But what was once the hero in our hands in the fight against single-use plastics, has become an object of suspicion – an unexpected victim of COVID-19’s collateral damage.
Not only is Härngren expertly versed in textile design, he’s managed to transmute his attention to detail and masterful eye for form and function to another medium: 925 silver.
In an industry defined by the ‘iconic’ faces that grace the runway season after season and fuelled by celeb culture, encountering a fellow creative with a genuine, self-effacing regard for the work of behind-the-scenes teams, is a welcomed relief.

Time Is A Gift Which We Share All The Time (EP) – Afriquoi
By Hannah Edwards
Since their first album in 2015, Afriquoi have established themselves as an afro supergroup, fusing African instruments and sounds with UK electronic undertones, drawing on elements of house, soca, hip-hop, soul and jungle to create a sound that is entirely unique. Their new EP, Time Is A Gift Which We Share All The Time, feels like a ray of sunshine in these gloomy times. This is also the first ever Afriquoi release where the whole band has gone into the studio to record their full live sound, allowing each member’s individual instruments – including Congolese guitar, Gambian kora and African Djembe – and talent to shine.
