Hello Japan: The Official Exhibition Catalogue for ‘Hello, My Name is Paul Smith’

£18.50

Quantity
  Following the success of Hello, My Name Is Paul Smith, which opened at the Design Museum in November 2013, the exhibition toured to Japan (Kyoto, Tokyo and Nagoya) in 2016. Hello Japan is the official catalogue that was produced to accompany the touring exhibition, and is written in Japanese. The catalogue was specially commissioned for a Japanese audience, and celebrates not only Paul Smith’s story, his collections and collaborations, but also the inspirations and obsessions that have helped to transform a small bedroom-sized shop into an innovative global forum for culture and style. From his company’s modest beginnings in Nottingham to its international prominence today, this exhibition reveals how Paul Smith’s intuitive take on design, together with an understanding of the roles of designer and retailer, have laid the foundations for lasting success and offers a unique insight into the magnificent mind of Paul Smith. - See more here.
