Art and fashion lovers rejoice! Frieze Week 2021 has a sartorial sway, with a host of brands, designers and retailers getting in the spirit of collaboration and celebration all over London. Here’s what to see and do.
Fashion and art come together at Frieze Week 2021
The luxury retailer is once again partnering with Frieze, serving up an art-inspired programme of events at its majestic townhouse at 5 Carlos Place in Mayfair. Peckish? Stop off for breakfast, lunch or a glass of fizz from caterer Spook London in Matchesfashion’s attic café; join a masterclass with floral artist Wagner; or sign up to an ‘In Conversation’ event with Turner Prize co-winning artist Alberta Whittle or budding gallerists Phoebe Saatchi Yates and Arthur Yates. Get RSVP-ing!

In a bid to promote a more sustainable mindset, fashion brand Zilver is hosting a pop-up space and exhibition at Walkers Court, bringing guests into its eco-aware universe. ‘Do Disrupt’, created with curator Mehdi Dakhli welcomes artists that question the status quo in exploring new media, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and upcycling. Among them are Marc-Aurèle Debut, Andreas Greiner, Armin Keplinger, and Giuseppe Lo Schiavo. Zilver also unveils its latest collection, Leo Part II, which features Flwrdwn by Pangaia, an insulating material made out of organic flowers and its collaboration with Tino Seubert on the brand's first Lifestyle piece, an aluminium chair accented with hand-hand-woven Zilver organic apple leather.

Kim Jones and Daniel Arsham
Dior men’s artistic director Kim Jones and close friend and collaborator Daniel Arsham – whom we enlisted to create the limited-edition cover for Wallpaper's 25th anniversary issue – come together for a talk at The Whiteley Gallery, in celebration of Arsham's ‘Eroded Summer’. Jones and Arsham teamed up for Dior's S/S 2020 menswear collection, with a show set featuring the artist's idiosyncratic monolithic sculptures in a state of decay, and a series of ready-to-wear pieces inspired by his partially eroded relics.
The talk will take place at 10am on 14 October 2021 at The Whiteley Gallery in Bayswater. ‘Eroded Summer’ runs 16 – 17 October at the gallery.
Dover Street Market London
Dover Street Market London celebrates Frieze Week 2021 with a plethora of exclusive displays and pop-up product launches. Just a few of our must-sees? A Supriya Lele special display featuring Narmada, the book she worked on with Jamie Hawksworth; the arrival of Kiko Kostadinov and Asics’ magazine, featuring an installation in the retailer's sneaker space; the launch of vintage diamond Cartier watches by Harry Fane; and the debut of Leica's Sofort instant camera.
