Paul Smith launches book in HK
(10-18 19:12)

Fashion designer Paul Smith launched his latest creation -- a book in Hong Kong this week.
Published in association with the Design Museum, which is hosting a major exhibition on Paul Smith in the autumn, “Hello, My Name is Paul Smith’’ celebrates not only the line’s fashion history, 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.
The publication is a rich visual experience, illustrated with documentation of its diverse creative community and design inspirations, including Martin Parr, David Bowie, and Henry Moore, to name a few.
Using hand-drawn designs, archival photographs, original photography, and essays, this colorful catalogue weaves together a compelling visual tale of Paul Smith’s prestigious projects and creative processes—from behind-the-scenes to on the streets—that built this multifaceted empire of cool.
The designer held a book signing at Ocean Centre, Harbour City in Kowloon on Thursday.
He also opened the newly-renovated shop at Ocean Centre.
