Looking at the impressive scale of its global operation today, the exhibition draws on Paul Smith’s personal archive, from the company’s beginnings in Nottingham to its international prominence today. The exhibition explores how Paul Smith’s intuitive take on design, together with an understanding of the roles of designer and retailer, have laid the foundations for the company’s lasting success and offer a unique insight into the magnificent mind of Paul Smith.” Design Museum
We really want to take you inside his head and show you what inspires him. It will be a journey through Paul’s history. He’s constantly doing something new and I think that’s why people are still so interested in him. He’s a subtle designer, but still has such an inventive approach to print, colour and pattern.
