Time Out

💥born from the Sylvia Plath Fan Club spoken-word night (founded above a strip club in Shoreditch) where lyric and poetry were explored with readings, COLD LIPS champions subculture with true fashion leadership.  In the same way that spoken word does not always need to be livestreamed, WE ARE A PRINT-FIRST MAGAZINE. 🍄
