Paul Smith And R.E.M. Collaboration


Paul Smith and R.E.M. have collaborated on a capsule collection of products to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album, Automatic for the People.


The capsule collection of limited edition products includes delicately woven scarves, silk pocket squares, canvas tote bags and graphic T-shirts.


Playing on Paul Smith design signatures of bold colour and photo print, the graphics within the collection make use of the Automatic for the People album artwork, famous song lyrics and promotional photos of the band taken by the Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn.


 “I’ve known and been a fan of R.E.M. for a long time,” said Paul. “I’ve always particularly enjoyed Michael’s haunting vocals. The band is a very imaginative and artistic group of people, which makes them such exciting creative collaborators.”


The Paul Smith & R.E.M. collaboration will launch on November 10th
