To celebrate the launch of their new Neeson Collection, Anya Hindmarch is opening the Weave Project: an immersive art installation that will take place during London Fashion Week. The accessories brand is no stranger to testing the boundaries of art and design: Anya Hindmarch was the first brand of its kind to hold an on-schedule London Fashion Week show.
The Neeson Collection, which is being celebrated by this event, features an updated version of one of Anya Hindmarch's most recognisable bag styles. The Neeson is a lightweight woven tote and cross-body that makes the ideal easy, luxurious summer bag. Each hand-woven tote takes several days to make and incorporates the brand's signature woven bow. Visitors to the installation will be able to purchase and personalise their own Neeson at the event.
One particularly interesting feature of the Weave Project will be The Tube - an art piece created by artists collective Numen/For Use. The Tube is constructed from woven mesh that creates an oscillating structure that visitors can climb through to experience the installation from unexpected and surreal angles. Numen/For Use is a collective working in the fields of conceptual art, scenography, industrial and spatial design.
The collective focuses on configuring objects and concepts without a predefined function, an activity resulting in hybrid and experimental works such as the N-Light series and Tape Installation. The group has won several international awards for their accomplishments in the field of industrial and set design.
16 - 19 February 2019, Brewer Street Car Park, London, UK.
