As one of the UK’s foremost fashion designers, Sir Paul Smith is a major figure in the cultural landscape. As a new show at the Design Museum celebrates this singular talent and restlessly creative personality, we went to spend some time with him in his office to get behind some of the headlines.
In this first instalment, Paul talks about the office (which has become such a big part of his brand that it has been recreated at the Design Museum exhibition), how he “curates” it and why so many of the things he hoards have such sentimental value for him. The second part of the interview will be released next week.
