Exciting news to kick start your Monday: we can exclusively reveal that David Bailey, world renowned photographer, has, for the very first time, allowed some of his archive prints to be splashed across t-shirts. Which means that, even if you’re on a budget, you can take a piece of his work home with you. This is a seriously Big Deal.

Bailey has handpicked six portraits taken across the span of his 50 year career – of Grace Jones, John Lennon, Johnny Depp, Mick Jagger, Michael Caine and Boy George - and enlisted the help of East London studio, The Bleach Room, who spent a year perfecting the graphics that turn them into works of art. And you're getting the very first look at them right here.

To mark the launch, ELLE interviewed Bailey for the March issue and persuaded him to photograph his wife, sons and studio crew wearing the T-shirts exclusively for us. You can read the interview in full, and see the pics, in the new issue, which hits newsstands this Thursday 30 January.

The © DAVID BAILEY collection will be available from Selfridges from 30 January, £70 each. Can’t wait to own one? We have 16 t-shirts to give to you. Simply email us at elleexperience@elleuk.comwith ‘David Bailey Collection’ in the subject line and you could be one of the first to own a slice of fashion history. Terms and conditions apply and we'll pick the 16 winners at random.
