The 8 Things Anthony Sperduti and Andy Spade Sweat Right Now
Just try and find two guys more plugged-in than these two.
Don’t bother trying to figure out exactly what Partners & Spade is—that would ruin all the fun. Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti, the incomprehensibly creative men spearheading the company, attack an incredible range of projects—as Anthony puts it, “We’ve done furniture, we’ve done lamps, we’ve done chairs, we’ve done ties, we’ve done books, we’ve done films”—and their interest set is always in flux. Here, Anthony runs through the things that are informing them and their works at this moment in time.
The Last Detail: “I just re-watched it—it’s Hal Ashby at his finest. It’s fun to see New York as it was: a dirty old city to go to on shore leave.
Haw-lin: “It’s always unique and specific in its visual and cultural sophistication.”
Margiela: “It’s our favorite now and since we can remember. Smart, contrarian, tasteful—everything this brand does, we are jealous of.”
I Heart Transylvania: “Jason Nocito, an incredibly talented artist we just had the pleasure to work with, made a beautiful, modern, poetic photography book about his wife.”
Red Rooster: “It’s great to see a chef fearlessly experimenting—and uptown, nonetheless.”
Tom Sachs: “The art world takes itself way to seriously. Tom does otherwise.”
The Paris Review: “The publication has been steadfast in its quality of writing and artwork. It makes us proud to live in the same city.”
Brooklyn Navy Yard: “From friends’ studios to the abandoned buildings, it’s an inspiring ode to MAKING THINGS—too rare these days in this country.”
Charlie Rose: “His is probably the only TV show we can think of where we don’t feel guilty after watching it.”
