THE ART OF KNIT - Benetton

Recently United Colors of Benetton launched a pop-up store/gallery concept in the heart of New York City’s SoHo neighborhood with all the Benetton styling, so it’s a very bright, colorful and creative space, where art, design, installations and fashion knitwear meet.

LANA SUTRA sculptures created by artist Erik Ravelo, which engage the senses through sight and touch, communicating the warmth of wool, a human embrace, love, emotion, pleasure (kama), and a common thread which unites mankind (sutra).

The pop-up space is located at 135 Crosby Street and will be open until December 2012.

You’ll find a unique collection of art pieces knitted by resident artists of FABRICA.
