i was walking home from dinner last friday chatting away with my mama on the phone, then rounded the corner to this sight!  it’s like a technicolor quilt across two huge warehouses. in the middle of london.

turns out it’s an installation to promote the new M&S + Oxfam “shwop” - a place to donate old unwanted clothes, but also pick up new ones. apparently the shwop concept has raised over £3 million for Oxfam since 2008.

great idea and what a fab way to promote it in the heart of vintage-ville london (brick lane of course)!

agata olek has been knitting up a storm all over london, recently even taking over a london cab during the sunday brick lane market.  now she’s invaded tony’s gallery and it’s really mesmerizing to see. a whole gallery, knit. neat.

the city is wilder than you think and kinder than you think
it is a valley and you are a horse in it
it is a house and you are a child in it
safe and warm here
in the fire of each other
