““Richard Christiansen, advertising guru and founder of New York’s preeminent creative house, Chandelier Creative, has collaborated with Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti and their acclaimed studio, Partner’s & Spade, to create the ultimate toy for boys– a five piece, 24 karat gold, limited edition toy soldier set.
Chandelier was founded around creativity, collaborations, and fun –Christiansen’s project with Partner’s & Spade is a perfect example of this. The result; a luxe gift perfect for any dad.
An incandescent gold box embossed with bold text provides a simple and chic packaging for the set. Inside, five individually crafted soldiers lay side by side. Each soldier is handmade, individually capturing a slightly different look and feel, so no two will be exactly the same. In addition, they are all engaged in various activities – some are marching, some are standing guard, and others are taking pictures.
Accompanying the soldiers are four environmental props, also 24 karat gold, ranging from a chiseled brick wall and barrel that provide a safe place for cover, to a pile of debris that remains from battle. Through adding these pieces to the set, Christiansen provides the means for one to fully envision the settings soldiers encounter on a daily basis.” Via The Malcolm.”
The limited edition sets, numbered to 100, will be available to purchase exclusively at Partner’s & Spade beginning June 20th. In addition, a celebration will be held at Partner’s & Spade this Father’s Day, June 20, 2010.
