This Funky Interactive Art Installation Has Arrived For London Fashion Week

Weave Project

The Weave Project looks like a silly amount of fun.

London Fashion Week brings out the brightest and best of the fashion firmament, but arguably no one makes a bigger splash than designer Anya Hindmarch. Last February, she sent an armada of chubby love hearts into the skies of London, and for the September edition of LFW, she brought the world’s biggest bean bag to Whitehall Palace. Now, she’s conjured up a fun interactive art installation, known as the Weave Project – and she’s inviting Londoners to climb all over it.

A vast knitted net of blue threads, known as The Tube, has been created by art collective Numen/For Use specially for the most style-conscious week of the year. Billed as an “oscillating structure that visitors can climb through to experience the installation from unexpected and surreal angles”, the Weave Project will be taking up residence in the Brewer Street car park, in the heart of Soho.

Members of the public are invited to spend time in the Weave, clambering through the woven tunnels and generally having a good old lark about. You’ll need to book a 30 minute slot for your turn on the net, and it’ll cost 10 of your hard-earned English pounds for a go. It’s in residence from February 16th-19th, and if nothing else, it’s a great opportunity to ride a very different kind of Tube.
