Paul Smith: You Can Find Inspiration in Everything

And if You Can't, Look Again

Published by Violette Editions
Edited by Robert Violette. Introduction by William Gibson. Text by Paul Smith, Richard Williams, James Flint, Glen Baxter, Paul Slater, Mick Brownfield, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Semir Zeki, Jim Davies, et al.

Paul Smith (born 1946) is a multi-award-winning designer who works in a variety of media and is best known for his menswear collections. This book, one of his most personal and exuberant projects, has been variously described as "A ripe blend of master craftsmanship and Monty Pythonesque lunacy" (Ink), and "A treasure trove for anyone interested in fashion and art" (The Bookseller). The book includes an introduction by William Gibson (in English, French, German, Italian and Japanese) and collaborations with and/or writings by Richard Williams, James Flint, Glen Baxter, Paul Slater, Mick Brownfield, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Semir Zeki, Jim Davies and others. Browsing these pages is a delightful excursion into Smith’s flair for eccentric, subversive detail; his dedication to the highest standards of craftsmanship and originality are everywhere in evidence. All of his passion and talent find brilliant expression in this homage to beauty and creativity. This book transcends the narrow boundaries of a fashion monograph and is certainly not a mere catalogue of suits. Rather, imagine the author’s brain on a page: a cornucopia of cleverly original and often humorous thoughts and ideas, all perfectly executed. This new edition brings the classic book back into print and contains new added material from the master himself.
