Patrik Ervell & Graham Hudson Build Fashion


The latest instalment in the Building Fashion series of temporary retail spaces (a programme devised by US-based non-profit arts and culture organisation BOFFO) comes from a collaboration between Swedish fashion designer Patrik Ervell and London artist and architect Graham Hudson.

Ervell, best-known for his menswear designs fusing innovative metallic fabrics with tailored American sportswear shapes, joined forces with Hudson to create a pop-up store with an industrial building-site aesthetic.

As a very low-fi take on the trend for up-cycling (see Upcycled Spaces report), embracing concrete, rubble and scaffolding, Hudson’s installation reflects the demolition of New York’s Walker Street, where the store is situated.

Ervell and Hudson’s retail installation is the third of five in the series and will remain open until November 3.
