Welcome to the Chubby Cloud

To celebrate London Fashion Week we created Chubby Cloud, an experiential installation inspired by the cloud motif in our Chubby Collection. Located at Banqueting House in London, visitors were able to climb on and sink into the world’s largest bean bag under the magnificent Rubens ceiling. This three-day event included a series of talks, meditations, music and bedtime stories that the public were able to book into in support of Historic Royal Palaces.

As well as attending events, visitors were also able to enjoy Chubby Cloud inspired cakes in the Chubby Cloud Café and visit the Chubby Cloud shop, which will offer the latest Chubby Collection alongside items available exclusively at the event.
