inspired by the work of artist Fred Sandback, our set-design team created
sensational string sculptures for the crewcuts pages of our June Style Guide.
we went behind the scenes with Brian and Ashley, our star stylists, to learn more.
A minimalist sculptor, artist and printmaker, Fred Sandback is best known for his work with acrylic yarn, which he stretched between walls, ceilings and floors to create abstract forms. “He was able to break up space in a really cool way,” says Ashley.
“Sandback’s affinity for bright colors is so appropriate for crewcuts,” says Brian. “I love how the blue, green and yellow yarns look with our bright, summery pieces. It’s so vibrant and playful!”
“We started by sketching a bunch of different shapes,” the design duo explains. “We wanted to keep everything really simple while giving the kids something to interact with. We love to think of the kids as the people who create our sets.”
