Exclusive Benetton event today: Lana Sutra

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 6th, 2011

Textured threads intertwined each other to form a structured-meaningful art form ‘the emotion of colour, the cosiness of wool, a warming embrace, a uniting passion’.  Introducing ‘Lana Sutra‘ – a series of 15 installations created by Cuban artist and Fabrica resident, Erik Ravelo.  The installations celebrate love and the desire for equality and sharing – United Colors of Benetton weaves together the threads of innovation, of art, of its story as a leading knitwear manufacturer and of its future.

Today (6th Sept), Benetton is presenting the full series to the international media and fashion community in the respective cities; Istanbul, Milan and Munich.  Worldwide audience are not to worry, the installations will be shown live through the Benetton Live Windows digital showcase in internet and via live streaming.

Each installation is made of plaster sculptures of a man and a woman covered in coloured woollen threads.  The contact between their bodies, where the colours mingle and the thread merge, symbolises the natural love that cancels difference and binds humanity as one.

 La belleeza es tu cabeza

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: July 15th, 2011

I got this lovely Benetton cotton bag given at a recent press day last week, the bag has the ‘La Belleeza Es Tu Cabeza’ (You got a beautiful mind in Spanish) in psychedellic-typo style print in the shape of a female head, designed by Elliot Burford another resident at Fabrica.  The summer bag fits enough content for daily use or ideally for functional purpose, use it as sports/gym kit bag, light grocery shopping, extra emergency bag and the like.
