WALL OF WOW!
Paris Essex invites you to peek into their multi-coloured world of knit and crochet to be shown for the first time in Italy at White Milano in Knit Lab .
The site-specific installation ‘WALL OF WOW!’ will unveil the latest additions to a playful cavalcade of wearable blankets.
This season, our blankets escape to be worn in the great outdoors. The latest collection explores playful narratives in a multi-coloured world where distinctions between craft and design, high art and low culture are blurred. Inspired by the daily juxtapositions of playful fantasy and strange reality in London life and childhood memories; carnivals, markets, characters, posters and art. The colours are vibrant and bold, creating a spectrum of primaries, neons and offbeat pastels. Luxury wools, merino, mohair, alpaca and lambswool make friends with synthetics, ribbon, eyelash and chenilles. Faces and characters appear amongst rainbow stripes, harlequin pattern and tropical leaves. These statement pieces take the blanket from indoors to become outerwear; layered and worn as giant ponchos, capes, shawls and wraps
