This weekend artist and designer Nick Cave’s pop-up Soundsuit Shop will feature Chicago designer Anke Loh’s hand-knitted shawls from her fall 2010 collection. As she’s done in previous collections, Loh has incorporated images taken of optical fiber dresses (created as part of a previous project) into the fabric, but this time the knitted texture adds a new dimension to the concept, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces that combine abstraction with tactility.
The shawls will be on sale at the shop, which is located at 110 E. 23rd, from noon to 5 PM this Saturday and Sunday. Correction: the shawls, which run from $200 to $300, are available directly from Loh. Contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
