The Kennedys launch a ‘DOSE of V1BES’

Londoners are notoriously anti-social during their daily commute, especially at this time of the year in which the days are dark and the weather is cruel. In a bid to boost the mood of passers-by, The Kennedys, W+K London’s young creative students, have created colour-therapy installation ‘DOSE of V1BES’.

Taking over our public-facing Hanbury Street window, ‘DOSE of V1BES’ is a soothing installation, where the public can get an emotional uplift by pressing buttons that match their current mood and experience their own personal colour-fuelled light created to show which looks to boost their vibe. Adapting learnings from colour therapy, the window helps to provoke emotive responses, including excitement, joy and optimism.

Come by Hanbury Street  to try out the installation before Feb 1.

The Curious Confectioner’s comes to Hanbury St

This Christmas, we’ve handed over our public-facing window to students from The London College of Communication who have created The Curious Confectioner’s.

Come and visit the Hanbury Street sweet shop over the Christmas break and and choose from three festive flavours, with all proceeds going to our friends at St Joseph’s Hospice.

Shout out to the LCC’s Hannah Woodall, Hannah Mayall, Lakhi Soni, Phoebe Man, Laura Maria and Adamandia Pashalidi for creating the window with the help of W+K London’s Jeng Au, Dee Fenning, Will Lancaster and Tomas Coleman.
