Tonight marks the beginning of New York’s Fashion Night Out and being the Quiet Lunch is mainly an art oriented publication, we found the perfect place that integrates both. Tucked in Soho, New York City, the United Colors of Benetton pop-up combines contemporary art, design and lucrative fashions.
“Here you will find a world of knit, color and creativity – the definitive story of the Benetton brand. The converted garage space is a vivid mix of retail, gallery and craft workshop knitted together by the creative minds of You Nguyen, the Creative Director and FABRICA, Benetton Group’s Communication Research Center. A vibrant color spectrum of apparel & accessories is framed by an explosion of wool-covered curiosities, artworks and illustrations. Such an environment challenges conventional ideas of a clothing store, where dolphins, cactus, neons and sex positions are all welcome. The exhibition will include knitted artworks of LANA SUTRA by artist Erik Ravelo. In true Benetton style it is a celebration of diversity!”
For us, the most interesting part of this is the chance to see Erik Ravelo‘s Lana Sutra series; which we covered in April. So, if you’re interested in getting a little cozy tonight, the event will take place 6-10 PM on 9/6.
