Paul Smith for David Bowie

Old friends collaborate to celebrate album

Bowiemania is showing no signs of abating at ELLE Towers and today, it’s Paul Smith we’ve got to thank for our fix.

The designer – a long-time friend of Bowie – has created an exclusive organic cotton T-shirt in celebration of the upcoming release of new album The Next Day and the V&A’s exhibition.

It features the album artwork, designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, and hand-written ‘Paul Smith for David Bowie’ insignia.


‘David Bowie has worn a lot of Paul Smith throughout his career and I was excited and delighted when asked if I would do the official T-Shirt for his album The Next Day,’ says Smith. ‘There will also be some other great things coming up later in the year.’

Watch this space – and, in the meantime, you can buy your Bowie T today, priced £69.
