Sir Paul Smith CBE RDI , Tony Chambers (Authors)
A timely celebration of British design legend Sir Paul Smith and his one-of-a-kind creativity
This new monograph captures the unique spirit of British fashion icon Sir Paul Smith through 50 objects chosen by Sir Paul himself for the inspiration they have provided him over the years — from a wax plate of spaghetti and a Dieter Rams radio to a Mario Bellini Cab chair and a bicycle seat. Each object has impacted his worldview, his creative process, and his adherence to a design approach that's always imbued with distinctly British wit and eccentricity.
Sir Paul Smith CBE RDI (b. 1946) is one of the UK's foremost designers and is renowned for his creative spirit. His eponymous fashion brand combines traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge design to create beautifully made modern pieces.
Tony Chambers (b. 1963) is founder and creative director of design and lifestyle consultancy TC & Friends and co-chair of Brainstorm Design.
