Legend teams up with iconic designer to celebrate the release of his new LP
David Bowie has teamed up with designer Paul Smith for a T-shirt to celebrate the release of his new album ‘The Next Day’.
The cotton T-shirt, which features the Jonathan Barnbrook-designed artwork for ‘The Next Day’ – inspired by Bowie’s 1977 album ‘Heroes’ – is one of many collaborations between Bowie and Smith planned this year, Vogue reports. The shirt features a message and signature written by Paul Smith on the bottom right corner of the album sleeve image.
“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’,” Smith told Vogue “There will also be some other great things coming up later in the year.” The shirt will be available from March 7, priced at £70, from paulsmith.co.uk.
David Bowie will release ‘The Next Day’ on March 11, which follows the release of the tracks ‘Where Are We Now’ and ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’, which features Tilda Swinton in the video. Read NME’s review of it here.
