Much like Angela Kardashian, Things To Be Here For This Week is back with a vengeance! Here’s a concept: you, feeling good and placated, after reading this list. Get into it:

MIMA opening
Mima_Parra
The fantastic Alice and Raph of ALICE Gallery are the co-founders of a completely new Brussels museum called MIMA and this is so big. The first expo is called ‘City Lights’ (featuring artists Maya Hayuk, FAILE, Momo and Swoon) and the grand public opening is tomorrow (details below). KNOTORYUS attended yesterday’s press conference, but you will also find me there tomorrow with my Parra-designed MIMA logo pin crying over the beauty. More on this soon!

Gird your loins and gather your coins! Antwerp stock sale season is nigh and you’re more than welcome to come get bayoneted for trying to snatch some archive Dries or Raf from me. More info here.

KIVU coffee
Kivu.coffee_Christina_Hardy

KIVU is a new premier coffee passion project by Christina Hardy, inspired by the D.R. of Congo. Hardy’s résumé casually contains projects you’ve loved forever (that Kate Moss Another Man special issue poster hanging in my tiny purple uni bedroom? Hardy DOP’ed it). KIVU has just soft-launched, you can preorder here and get that early adopter glow.

Amandla Stenberg’s ‘Blue Girls Burn Fast’
BlueGirlsBurnFast_AmandlaStenberg
“Don’t come for my Hot Cheetos, Rachel Dolezal!”
The flaw-free Amandla Stenberg, hugger of Oprah, has written, directed, shot and edited her first short film ‘Blue Girls Burn Fast’. It’s quotable, packed with millennial shade/Weltschmertz and scintillating with Stenberg’s #blackgirlmagic.

IVY PARK
IVYPARK_Beyonce
Hoist the nearest child unto your back and find a plot of grass: IVY PARK has dropped! You too can soon stunt in a Bey-blessed bodysuit at your local gym/club/wine and cheese night by going here. The line has not sold out yet, but the queen giveth and taketh so get to stepping. Also, be sure to check out Ostend’s Very Own, Ms. Ouniserving looks as one of 13 European IVY Park ambassadors!
