To pay tribute to William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death – he popped his ye olde clogs back in 1616 – a bunch of grime stars have got together for the Shakespeare reCITED project. They’ve been asked to ‘rethink’ the Bard’s poetry and plays and reinvent his work using their own stories and experience. Novelist, Little Simz and Krept & Konan have all got involved, and – to make the whole thing that much more lolz – they’ve each teamed up with an up-and-coming fashion designer to create a range of tour merchandise. Each of the limited edition pieces will be available at Selfridges, and the London store will also be hosting performances from each artist in The reFASHIONed Theatre on site throughout the summer, staring with a launch event on July 7.
