Text description provided by the architects. Building Fashion at HL23 along with PIN-UP design magazine recently unveiled their final installation in celebration of cutting edge design in New York City. Avant-garde newcomer Siki Im displays the clothing embedded beneath a layer of foam, ‘reinforcing the dichotomy of two environments – public and private, visible and invisible’. This stand-alone retail installation is the first of its kind.
The design by architects Leong Leong will be on display through today.
Leong Leong competed in a nationwide competition to design Siki Im’s stan-alone retail installation.
Siki Im’s men’s wear collection is award winning, having garnered the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award. The Siki Im Store consulted with PROJECT No. 8 as a retail partner.
BOFFO and Spilios Gianakopoulos are sponsors for Building Fashion at HL23: a series of collaboration celebrating architecture and fashion design.
