Your favourite nineties hits
This year, in a brand new section, Frieze will be revisiting seminal exhibitions from the nineties, selected by curator Nicolas Trembley, and the perfect excuse for indulging in a playlist that features Oasis, Blur, The Fugees, Nirvana and All Saints.
Style tip: The nineties are back on the catwalk too – nowhere more so in knitwear, so wrap up in an over-sized sweater and wear with sporty classics for a modern spin.
The sleek West End establishment, favoured by the jet set and known for it’s simple but perfectly executed grilled dishes, will be hosting the VIP Room restaurant at Frieze London for the first time. Head to its Grosvenor Square home for a preview.
Style tip: Though a favourite among the bespoke-suited, the restaurant dress code specifies ‘no tie needed’, so relaxed tailoring and a tee will hit the perfect balance.
Frieze Sculpture Park
A major (and free) cultural attraction, following on from a successful three month residency at last year’s event, the Frieze Sculpture Park will return to Regent’s Park this time around too. For those who like their art larger than life.
Style tip: London’s great outdoors can be notoriously fickle in the autumn. Be prepared for sunshine or frost by layering one of this season’s bombers with a fine knit.
Chi-Wen Gallery and Proyectos Ultravioleta at Frieze London
The fair is getting even more global this year with first ever representations for Taiwan and Guatemala. From the former, the Chi-Wen gallery will be bringing Yin-Ju Chen, with Proyectos Ultravioleta presenting Elisabeth Wild and Vivian Suter for the latter.
Style tip: Be inspired by the vibrancy of these two regions by embracing colour and print – creative types Maison Kitsuné have several eye-catching shirts that fit the bill.
Jeremy Deller for House of Voltaire Sweatshirt
Want to make a real statement? British conceptual artist and former Turner prize winner Jeremy Deller has teamed up with art collective House Of Voltaire to create a series of provocative fashion pieces. ‘My Booze Hell’ sweatshirt is our pick.
Style tip: This is a real conversation piece, so keep the rest of your outfit classic and chic to ensure that people are talking for all the right reasons.
