Red Bull Studios announces photography and lifestyle brand Places+Faces will open a pop-up shop in Soho this Thursday 8th June as part of their recently announced collaboration.
The opening of the store coincides with the release of a 12-track mixtape featuring 67, Darq E Freaker, Scrufizzer, Kojey Radical, Slowthai and Oscar Worldpeace recorded at Red Bull Studios as well as a launch party at Studio Spaces London later that night (£10 tickets are available via Dice).
Across two days the temporary shop, located on Berwick Street in Soho, will sell previously unreleased items from a brand new Places+Faces range alongside old favourites, including their best selling shoulder bags. Inspired by Places+Faces founders Ciesay and Soulz’ personal style, the collection will only be available from the pop-up, until its wider release online the following week.
The shop will also house an exhibition of founder Ciseay’s photographs captured at Red Bull Studios as the mixtape was recorded. A top-secret performance from one of the mixtape contributors will also take place in the store at some point across the two-day opening. Talking about the collaboration, Ciesay of Places+Faces says: “Red Bull gave me the platform and studio to really bring the idea of the tape to life which was dope”
