London's Brompton Road is having a series of interesting pop-up events at the moment. As well as the Skandium sale shop earlier this month, it's now hosting the Ascher Studio pop-up display.
Zika Ascher is well known for his role in the fabric industry in the twentieth century, providing fabric for everyone from Dior to Mary Quant. He's especially celebrated for the 'Artists Squares' series, when from the mid-Forties to the mid-Fifties he invited 51 artists such as Henry Moore, Picasso and Barbara Hepworth to design scarves – with the aim that contemporary art would in turn inspire innovative textile design.
Until 15 March, 221 Brompton Road is displaying some of these scarves, alongside archive letters from Ascher to the artists. Also on show are wall panels designed by Moore when he was the company's in-house designer.
The display also includes Ascher's new range of scarves and accessories inspired by their extensive archive.
