Sir Paul Smith collaborates with Led Zeppelin
Sir Paul Smith has unveiled a limited edition range of scarves to celebrate the remastering of Lep Zeppelin's nine studio albums.
Sir Paul Smith has collaborated with Led Zeppelin on his latest scarf collection.
The London-based designer has teamed-up with the legendary rock band to create the accessories in celebration of the remastering of their nine studio albums.
The albums - which have been reissued in chronological order after being remastered by the band's guitarist and producer Jimmy Page - are being replicated to be produce a collection of nine scarves to go on sale exclusively in-store and online.
The first three artwork designs for 'Led Zeppelin', 'Led Zeppelin II' and 'Led Zeppelin III' have been reinterpreted onto luxury fabrics, measuring 1.5 by 1.5 metres and have been described as ''truly unique items''.
The 69-year-old menswear icon took on the challenging task of replicating the covers by using a photographic weaving technique to create the largely monochromatic cover of ''Led Zeppelin''.
Four high quality yarns were combined to produce the eight colours of the bright ''Led Zeppelin II'' image, while the psychedelic ''Led Zeppelin III'' has been recreated using a combination of boucle and merino wool.
Only 50 scarves in each design will be available to buy when they go on sale at PaulSmith.co.uk and the Paul Smith store on Albemarle Street London from Thursday October 23rd.
