KnittaPlease & The Standard @ NYFW


I received this picture straight from New York and I think it's a fab break from Paris posting. Yes, it is yet another KnittaPlease project, this time as part of all happening at New York Fashion Week, now. What you see is a knit graffiti installation in celebration of NYFW, emphasizing the intersections between textile art, design, craft, street culture and the DIY movement.

I like what KnittaPlease does. Indeed they are adding some unconventional, much needed warmth to urban fixtures!

Installation location: The Standard Hotel, 848 Washington Street New York, NY 10014 , September 9-17, 2009

See Knitta's May 2007 installation at The Standard Hollywood.

Love them! So much, I did a paper on them for architecture school a couple of years ago. Glad to see they're still out there.
