To celebrate London Fashion Week, Accessories Designer Anya Hindmarch will create 'Chubby Cloud', an experiential installation inspired by the cloud motif in her A/W 18 Chubby Collection. Located in Banqueting House, London, visitors will be able to climb on and sink into the world’s largest beanbag under the iconic Rubens ceiling, the largest surviving work by the artist still in its original location in Europe. This three-day event will feature a series of live talks, meditations and music.
Highlights include bedtime stories read by Poppy Delevingne and Claudia Winkleman, Yana Peel in conversation with Marc Quinn and Victoria Sin talking about body image in art, Hindmarch in conversation with Lisa Armstrong, Professor Russell Foster talking about sleep, guided morning meditations with Happy Not Perfect, lullabies, Richard E Grant, tech talks, history talks and even Radio 4’s Shipping Forecast read live to music all taking place on the Chubby Cloud.
'Following on from our 'Chubby Hearts over London' campaign, 'Chubby Cloud' is an experiential installation under the Rubens ceiling of Banqueting House that is open to the public. Inspired by our Chubby Collection, the world’s biggest bean bag will immerse people in our brand whilst listening to and experiencing things that we love.' says Hindmarch.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy Chubby Cloud inspired cakes in the Chubby Cloud pop-up café and visit the Chubby Cloud pop-up shop which will offer the Designers latest Chubby Collection – released globally to coincide with the event – alongside products created exclusively for the event including Chubby Cloud cushions, Chubby Cloud eye masks and Chubby Cloud marshmallows.
Visit Banqueting House, London from Friday 14 September to Sunday 16 September 2018.
