David Bowie is obviously thinking about his pension. He not only has a new album out next week – and it is rather good apparently – he has also teamed up with iconic Brit designer Paul Smith to launch a range of T-shirts.
With all due respect to Mr Smith this hardly looks like his most challenging projects, The shirts, which are white and available with (men) or without (women) sleeves feature the image from Bowie’s new album The Next Day – itself a cut up of the sleeve of Heroes. They are made from high quality organic cotton and complimented by a simple ‘Paul Smith for David Bowie’ insignia.
It is not a new partnership either as Paul Smith and Bowie have apparently been pals for years.
“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. They’ll also be some other great things coming up later in the year.” Paul explains.
The men’s t-shirt will be available from 7th March via PaulSmith.co.uk and from the 8th March via our standalone shops and key wholesale partners. The same T-shirt in women’s fits will be available exclusively from the 7th March via PaulSmith.co.uk.
There’s no details of the price – but I guess they will be fairly pricey.
More partnerships between Paul Smith and David Bowie are planned for the coming months.
