| Paul Smith and R.E.M. Collaborate For 25th Anniversary of Album; Automatic For The People.
British fashion designer Paul Smith has launched a new capsule collection in collaboration with rock band powerhouse REM, reported The Independent earlier this month.
The project is celebrating the 25th anniversary of REM’s 1992 album, Automatic For The People, with pieces like t-shirts, scarves, socks and tote bags inspired by their lyrics, photographs and graphics.
“I’ve known and been a fan of REM for a long time. I’ve always particularly enjoyed Michael Stipe’s haunting vocals. The band is a very imaginative and artistic group of people, which makes them such exciting creative collaborators.” – Paul Smith
The exclusive new menswear collection is now available to by on the Paul Smith website. Prices range from £19-£300, and you can also buy the record with a special bonus track and album art prints too.
