To celebrate his studio’s 20th anniversary, the celebrated designer Tom Hingston has joined forces with Paul Smith to create ‘Progress’ an exhibition currently running in Smith’s flagship store on London’s Albemarle Street.
The show includes 16 of Hingston’s album covers, reworked as lenticulars. Del Naja, Nick Cave and The Chemical Brothers have also worked with Hingston and Smith to create a superior range of band merchandise. The Nick Cave blue velour bomber jacket features embroidered mermaids, based on the artwork for his ‘Lovely Creatures’ album; The Chemical Brothers knitwear features zig-zags taken from the ‘Born in the Echoes’ sleeve while del Naja is part printing, part painting some of his own artwork onto leather jackets.
Del Naja, better known as 3D, established a reputation as a graffiti artist in Bristol, before helping found Massive Attack and his artwork has been featured on all the band’s sleeves. He has also collaborated with United Visual Artists on Massive Attack’s live shows.Dates:
