BILL BLASS NEW YORK
Fashion District, New York City
This subtly detailed showroom space, with its refined material palette and strong sense of proportion, is very well suited to the Bill Blass vision of tailored American classic-yet-modern clothing. The various degrees of translucency create a refuge of muted light that envelops the visitor in the showroom and makes the cacophony of Seventh Avenue a distant memory. Once in the showroom, the finishes and materials combine textures, transparency and reflectivity to contain, conceal and expand the sense of space in an ephemeral shell that provides a perfect foil for the clothing displayed within.
