By Charlotte Hurd, on 13th September 2019

Welcome to your Friday dose of TOO x TOO – our round up of the four most exciting, unusual or interesting things to drop in the last seven days, brought to you by the insights team here at The One Off.

The Postbox Maze…

To celebrate the launch of her Postbox bag range, Anya Hindmarch’s third immersive event The Postbox Maze is an art installation inspired by M.C Escher’s mural, designed for The Hague Post Office.

London Fashion Week attendees can take on the maze in Brewer Street Car Park and as well as solving the twists and turns, guests can also experience installations and collaborations with Letters Live, view artefacts from The Postal Museum and attend workshops celebrating the art of the written word.

Tickets for the event, running across this weekend are still available to buy on the Anya Hindmarch site.

The hottest fashion at New York Fashion Week

According to Cheetos – the colours of the season will be orange and black. Their ‘House of flamin’ haute’ a pop-up-style bar brought brand colours to the runway this week.

Fans won their places at the event by sharing their own ‘Cheetos look’ across social media with the hashtag #CheetosFlaminHaute. On site, stylists created Cheetos-inspired looks with Cheeto Dust Nails manicures, Flamin’ Hot Eye Makeup makeovers and hair styles including cheetah-tail braids with Cheetos-inspired hair charms and clips.

What lies beneath: A new London exhibition

In the midst of the selfie area, it’s more important than ever to dig down into the deepest depths of our own identities.

A new London exhibition, ‘Masters of Disguise’ taking place during London’s Design Festival will showcase handmade masks crafted from recycled materials.

And for those who don’t easily scare, the show will be brought to life by a playful performative dinner during which the designers will all wear their masks at the table as a way of choosing whether to hide or share what lies beneath…

A glass box of curiosities…

A simple glass box designed to house the second largest collection of Bauhaus in the world has opened this week.

Bringing much needed climate-controlled flexible space to the city, the space dedicated entirely to Bauhaus showcases objects, models and schoolwork projects.

As the second largest collection in the world it requires a climate-controlled, light-sensitive space where original documents and pieces can be displayed. The building reflects light back or allows glimpses through the building, depending on the time of day and amount of sunlight.
