Paul Smith collates his cycling memorabilia for new book
Eminent menwear and fashion designer looks through his extensive collection to highlight the people, stories, images and bicycles that have influenced him.
From his collection of cycling jerseys and his extensive library of cycling publications and brochures of the 1950s and 1960s, to the inspiration he has found in his cycling heroes (Coppi, Anquetil, Bartali) and his collaborations with bike-makers (Mercian, Condor and Pinarello) and race organisers, this is a personal and highly visual journey through Paul Smith’s love of cycling.
This scrapbook is beautifully designed to reflect the style of Paul Smith and is a wonderful source of inspiration for cyclists, designers and fashionistas alike. More than merely a book about one man’s enthusiasm for a sport, Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook is an insight into how the people, stories and imagery that fill this passion have influenced one of the most successful personalities in the design world.
