After a long weekend (almost a week) of working and getting pretty messy I decided last week was the start of my detox. You know where this is going…yes it lasted one day. I blame Ray-Ban for the start of my downward spiral. On Tuesday night they held a launch party for their exciting new Raw Sounds project at East London’s Village Underground. With live music from Tom Vek and DJ sets from The Mystery Jets, I obviously had to pop down. I arrived at around 7.30pm, straight after the Gucci store launch, and sipped on some delicious fruity cocktails, whilst the boys drunk beer.
The Raw Sounds project has been created by the Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr, who has come up with five areas to inspire musicians, from poetry and videos to more randomly, a map of New York. Johnny’s challenged the artists to create new tracks inspired by these diverse areas, one of these includes a photograph he took of a man and woman filming each other whilst wearing Ray-Ban wayfarers. The artists involved with the project include, Best Coast, Mona, Au Revoir Simone and Tom Vek.
The venue was packed with press, musicians and celebs. My fave celeb spot was Fazer, who looked babein in his Ray-Bans.
