Description

From his company’s modest beginning in Nottingham to its international prominence today, this exhibition reveals how Paul Smith’s intuitive take on design have laid the foundations for lasting success, offering a unique insight into the magnificent mind of Paul Smith.

Consisting of over 1,500 objects which span the British designer’s vast career, the exhibition focuses on a series of key themes that have defined the history of Paul Smith. Different stages of the design and production process are explored, offering a rich insight into Paul’s design practice while highlighting how the principles of traditional craftsmanship and tailoring are given a contemporary edge.

Paul Smith’s first shop in Byard Lane, Nottingham, which measured a mere 3m x 3m, is recreated in the exhibition alongside an immersive digital room and a 1:1 replica of Paul’s office- a space packed full of books, bikes, acquired objects from travels and gifts from those who visit.
