Liam Gallagher has collaborated with Selfridges on an exclusive fashion collection, with pop-up shops across Manchester.
The former Oasis frontman is launching original designs with luxury brands including Barbour, C.P. Company, Finlay, Sage Nation and Nigel Cabourn.
Liam’s collection coincides with the release of his third album and his two massive upcoming shows at Knebworth.
The range will be available online, as well as in pop-up shops at Selfridges stores in London, Exchange Square in Manchester city centre, and the Trafford Centre.
Barbour has created jackets with Liam Gallagher patches, which have been treated and upcycled.
C.P. Company has laser-engraved the rockstar’s logo and RKID slogan into its lens badges, as well as creating printed t-shirts.
Then Finlay has added L.G. initials to its sunglasses, and Sage Nation has included images of Liam on its smocks.
Liam himself helped to design a range of items including hats, jackets, shorts and trousers with Nigel Cabourn, with prices ranging from £60 for a bucket hat to £275 for a smock.
The partnership is an effort from Selfridges and Warner Music’s WMX, as well as Liam and his management.
Fashion students at Manchester Metropolitan University were selected to collaborate on the pieces, with Niamh & Aoife Dobson and Hari Thavanendran designing graphics.
Bosse Myhr, director of Menswear and Womenswear at Selfridges, said: “This collection is an iconic way to celebrate the unquestionable impact Liam has had on British style.
“Liam’s direct involvement with the brands in both designing and curating product is a true point of difference and the inclusion of graphics that have been designed by young Manchester talent is a great reference to Liam’s roots.
“The exclusive package from Nigel Cabourn is a standout, a true celebration of British fashion and culture.”
Sam Eldridge, from Liam Gallagher’s management team, said: “Liam Gallagher is not only one of the greatest rock stars of all time but a true fashion icon and pioneer whose style and influence can be seen from high streets to festival fields across the country.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the iconic Selfridges store for these unique events, that celebrate Liam’s style, with limited edition pieces from brands – Barbour, C.P. Company, Finlay, Nigel Cabourn And Sage Nation – that have been part of Liam’s story since the beginning.
“We are also very happy to be collaborating with Manchester Fashion Institute, inspiring the next generation of innovators and creatives.”
Chester Zoo calls for runners to take on new charity 10k to help ‘save endangered animals’
Chester Zoo is calling for thousands of runners to take on a charity 10k through the zoo’s grounds in a bid to help save one of its many endangered species.
The UK’s biggest charity zoo is looking for 2,500 runners of all abilities to sign up for its brand-new ‘Run for Nature‘ later this year – which begins inside the zoo’s 128-acre grounds, and sees participants race past the elephant, giant otter, and giraffe habitats, all before heading out and around the wider countryside estate.
As well as the 10k route, there’s also a special one-mile ‘zoom’ fun run around the zoo, which is perfect for energetic kids under 12.
All runners will get a medal when they cross the finish line, and there’ll even be some exciting prizes up for grabs for those who raise the most money.
Taking place on Sunday 24 September, all funds raised from the run will go towards the Chester Zoo’s ongoing and extremely-important efforts to find a vaccine for a deadly virus that threatens endangered elephant populations all across the world – which is known as Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpesvirus (EEHV).
Scientists at the zoo are currently in the middle of the world’s first vaccine pilot study to fight the virus, and hope that proceeds raised from the upcoming events can help “create a future where Asian elephants survive and thrive.”
“We’re so excited to be able to offer places for 2,500 fundraisers to run our first ever 10k Run for Nature later this year,” explained Hannah Wright, Fundraising Lead at Chester Zoo.
“As a charity, fundraising is at the core of this event, but we also hope that it’s a great fun event that the whole family can get involved in – whether running, supporting or sponsoring.
“All participants will be receive a sustainable medal and top fundraisers will have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, which include annual memberships, animal experiences, and meal vouchers for our gastro pub, The Oakfield, as well as a selection of animal adoptions.”
You can get half-price fish and chips for just £3.49 at all Morrisons cafes today
Morrisons is giving hungry customers the chance to tuck into a hearty helping of fish and chips at half the price for just one day only today.
And it’s all to suitably celebrate National Fish and Chip Day.
A popular annual event in the British foodie calendar, National Fish and Chip Day falls on Friday 2 June this year, and to mark the special occasion, Morrisons has slashed the price of its usual chippy offering at hundreds of its in-store cafes nationwide.
The major supermarket has more than 400 cafes inside stores right across the UK, and the half-price food offer is believed to be available at all of them.
Adults can enjoy Fish, Chips and Peas for just £3.49, while the children‘s Mini Fish, Chips and Peas meal has also been reduced to £2.74.
Not a bad bargain at all, right?
The only catch is though, you’ll need to be signed-up to the supermarket‘s loyalty scheme and scan your Morrisons More card at the cafe checkout if you want to claim the half price offer.
Morrisons’ half-price fish and chips offer also comes after it relaunched its popular ‘Ask for Henry’ initiative towards the end of April after a successful run when it was first introduced amid the rising cost of living crisis in 2022.
‘Ask for Henry’ saw the retailer team up with Heinz for scheme that’s aimed at helping those struggling with their finances get themselves a free hot meal.
