The Simon Spurr Shop was commissioned by Architizer and Building Fashioni as a part of “Building Fashion at HL23: A series of collaborations celebrating art and architecture” with Simon Spurr — the 2009 CFDA/Vogue and 2010 CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear nominee. The shop concentrates on the idea of a folded ribbon, developing as an exterior skin and folding inwards to create the the modern inteiror. Using the latest BIM technologies, the fabrication was automated and produced on a very tight timetable.
“Simon Spurr launched his eponymous menswear line in 2006 after serving as head Menswear Designer for cK Calvin Klein and Design Director for Ralph Lauren Purple Label and Ralph Lauren Black Label. Now a full American lifestyle brand highlighting modern British elegance, the line includes sportswear, suiting, denim and accessories. SIMON SPURR and SPURR are sold at retailers worldwide including Bergdorf Goodman, Jeffrey New York, Saks Fifth Avenue, Luisa Via Roma, The Webster, Confederacy, Harrods, Bloomingdales, Scoop and Nordstrom.
