The event, which kicks off at 6.30pm, will include a performance by Puppy and DJ set from Max Bloom, meanwhile Voodoo Rays is supplying pizza and there will be beer by Hopbox.

Situated at Boxpark in Shoreditch, the pop-up houses a new jersey apparel line by Kangol and Hackney based street wear label, Terrible Movement, coined KNGLxTRRBL.

The line will be available for purchase from the pop-up until Sunday (11 October), at which point consumers can head to the Terrible Movement website, as well as the Kangol website in the coming weeks.

Launched in the US in June, Radio Kangol brings 10 of the world’s top record labels together, with their sets streamed online via the Radio Kangol website. A different label is delivering the store’s playlist each day. 

Spindle Agency set up the partnership between the two brands, and is handling the creative direction, event management and strategy over the coming months. KBA is responsible for the day-to-day PR for the Kangol brand.

Heather Falconer, executive creative director at Spindle Agency told Event: "Spindle prides itself on supporting new talent, so when Heather Spindle and Tersha Willis, the co-founder of Terrible Movement, met for pizza in Dalston a few months ago, Heather had a sudden spell of inspiration that Terrible Movement would be an ideal partner for Kangol.

"Terrible Movement’s deep involvement with music was a key deciding factor, with musicians such as Rita Ora, Invader Girl and Splashh among the fans of the brand. Terrible Movement have brought their cool streetwear credentials to the much-loved Kangol brand." 

She added that the partnership is something the agency is looking to continue.
