London’s Overthrow is this Tuesday!

Hot on the heels of the FT’s news that Hackney’s Burberry Factory Outlet is to be joined by Prada, Gucci and Dior – really, check this out – China Mieville thankfully returns to Hackney this Tuesday to look into, and well beyond, the phenomenon some are calling ‘Gucci in the Ghetto’.
