IN THE RED: Sir Paul Smith is paying tribute to his friend, David Bowie, with a limited edition red vinyl edition of Bowie’s new album, “The Next Day”. Smith personally selected the special translucent tone of the record and it will be stocked on the Paul Smith Web site, as well as in selected Paul Smith shops and by selected wholesalers, including Selfridges and Nottingham Music Exchange from May 17.

This is the latest in a series of collaborations between the designer and Bowie to celebrate the new album, the first of which was the official T-shirt for the album, which featured artwork designed by Jonathan Barnbrook printed on organic cotton with ‘Paul Smith for David Bowie’ insignia.
