Anderson & Sheppard, established in 1906, is one of the world’s oldest and most respected tailoring houses on Saville Row that has a legacy in combining traditional craft methods in tailoring, while also looking toward the next generation.
Their eponymous cube for Cure3 2020 captures a moment in time that represents the tailoring house’s culture and heritage. In order to execute the precision and craftsmanship required to realise their vision for the cube, they collaborated with master model makers Drapeaux de France (founded in 1949 in the Palais-Royal Gardens and specialising in producing small-scale figures and tin soldiers). The model is at once hand-made (with painstaking detail) whilst also being in part 3D printed. Each figurine represents an actual person who works in the Anderson & Sheppard studio, providing an exquisite homage to the craftsmanship of their business both past and present. Fabricated by: Drapeaux de France Helen Bourch - Painter Benjamin Zerbibn - Sculptor Vlad Jünger – 3D Modelling
