This month Paul Smith and Martin Parr celebrate the great British seaside with a collection of limited edition products for Dover Street Market.
Both Paul Smith and Martin Parr are acclaimed for capturing the humour and irreverence of the British character. This unique collaboration blends Parr’s instantly recognisable photography and Smith’s signature use of photo print to stunning effect.
The capsule collection includes five products: a photo print scarf plus two designs of pocket square and swim shorts. As a lover of photography and a longstanding friend of Martin Parr, Paul has previously hosted exhibitions of the photographer’s work in his London and Tokyo shops.
“I have collaborated many times with Paul Smith and on each occasion it’s a different project or concept”, said Martin. “But this one I like best of all, where he uses my imagery on a summer clothing range. I love to see my work used in different ways, and this is a great way to bring my beach images, back to the beach.”
