We are delighted to be a key partner of the ‘Chubby Hearts over London’ campaign with multiple installations set to feature across the heart of London in the coming week.
The balloons will float from dawn until dusk and reappear above different iconic locations the following day throughout the campaign. We are pleased to confirm the following West End landmarks are set to feature:
- Piccadilly Circus
- Leicester Square
- The Ritz, Piccadilly
- Waterloo Place
The public design project, conceived by English fashion designer Anya Hindmarch, launches as a ‘surprise love letter to London’ on Valentine’s Day and will continue on as a celebration into London fashion week.
