THE WEEK CURATED: JOURNAL’S BEST OF THE WEB

Every week the Journal team share the very best of what they’ve been reading, watching and listening to on everything from fashion and design to wellness and food.

We’ve spent much of our office downtime this week playing on this great little A to Z of London keyboard by Citizen M hotels. It’s self-deprecating and irreverent and a lot of fun.


Anna Laurini’s designs are starting to pop up on walls all over London, especially around Soho and Brick Lane. This is a great interview by Artefact magazine.


We couldn’t be more excited about Royal Mail’s announcement of David Bowie stamps. Some of us have already pre-ordered!


As the London pollution levels have hit extremely high every day this week, we’ve been grateful for these tips by Byrdie about protecting our skin from harmful pollutants.


We love eco-friendly brand Reformation and are so excited that they’ve extended their pop-up until 8th March. This summary by Journal favourite Riposte magazine is a great, quick read.


Everyone’s favourite Pantone has created an actual Air BnB that you can go and stay at in Clerkenwell London, all in Pantone’s colour of the year, 15-0343 Greenery.


Street View: Photographs of Urban Life at Graves Gallery in Sheffield is showcasing 100 years of urban landscape photography as an intriguing insight into the city from a diverse selection of residential streets. Definitely worth a visit!


We’re loving Emma Jane Palin’s blog post about new colour trends, also featuring Pantone’s Greenery but also an array of vibrant hues, including one inspired by Clerkenwell London’s Camille Walala take over in December last year.


This week we were shocked to discover how little UK workers are paid in some clothing factories. Business of Fashion has a very informative summary.


Everyone secretly loves a selfie, and now yours could be in the Saatchi Gallery featured in their new exhibition, From Selfie to Self-Expression.


In the week that Donald Trump became President too much is going on for us to keep track, so The Guardian’s interactive first 100 days is helping us out. We love the little bits of humour in an otherwise scary political landscape.


Ikea’s incredible flatpack refugee shelter won design of the year and is now on show in London’s Design Museum. Recently titled ‘London’s most eligible bachelor’, architecture writer Oliver Wainwright has written a great column summing up the shelter’s unique characteristics.


And finally it wouldn’t be a weekend without some form of animal video, so here is this brilliantly cute advert for Mailchimp by directors The Sacred Egg, with Droga5 featuring a kale dog..
