I know it's been a while since my last post, lots of inspiring new projects and travelling a lot to India with an exciting new client (more to come on that one).
Anyway, I finally managed to get the The Design Museum yesterday in search for some inspiration from one of my favourite fashion designers.
HELLO, MY NAME IS PAUL SMITH is quite a compact exhibition, but perfectly curated.
It takes you on a complete journey from his first (3m x 3m) store in Nottingham to the global brand presence of today.
Having my own 'mini' gallery walls both at home and the studio, I especially loved the main space with eclectic prints, photographs and inspired quotes - 'Every Day Is A New Beginning' being a personal favourite and now a new mantra of mine.
Both his personal studio in Covent Garden and main studios having been recreated to the last detail, giving you a real insight into the workings and creativity of the iconic British designer.
I also forgot about the many collaborations the brand has created over the years, from the classic Paul Smith Stripe Mini, to the limited edition HP sauce bottle (adding ultimate style to any bacon butty).
