Designer Paul Smith gives us a haphazard look into his life with this short film from Nowness.com
"The English fashion legend talks mortality and bad jokes
A much-beloved mainstay of London’s sartorial scene since the 1970s, Paul Smith remains a creative force to be reckoned with— and an eternal prankster, as revealed in the third episode of our new series, Fear and Love, made in collaboration with London’s Design Museum.
Smith—who is a long-time supporter of the Design Museum, and has been the subject of two of its previous exhibitions—exemplifies the institution's mission to showcase design in the widest sense of the word, from product and graphic to digital and fashion, and all the bits in between. Taking the camera into his own hands, Smith shows us around his divinely cluttered office, and offers us a glimpse of his whirlwind everyday.
