I was invited the other day to the Paul Smith in-store gallery event in Bahrain City Center and my date for the night was my 9 year old son. It was a fun event where we got to know more about the British designer (fly the flag 😉 ), get a close up look of his photography and inspirations and be embraced by all things Paul Smith. Behind the brand is a down to earth guy who is more than just a designer. His love of cycling is evident throughout the store with images of vintage cycles plastered all over the walls. His dream as youngster was to by a cyclist and win the tour de france. He married a woman who opened his eyes to the art scene and he found his calling in photography. His photography is street style and you will also find images of a mini car photographed in different locations; which he drives everywhere himself. Through his photography he finds inspiration for his designs which you will see in the images below.
Now this is the fun part. There’s a competition for all of you and all you need to do is take any photo with your phones and linking it to Paul Smith in your special way. Anything that reminds you of Paul Smith, his products, what you think he may find inspiring of even of his designs… the choices are open.. just link away. You can then share your images on Instagram tagging #PaulSmithBahrain . The winner of the best photograph will win a BD100 gift card to use at our Paul Smith Boutique in Bahrain City Center. The competition ends on 16/12/2012. Spread the word, it’s going to be fun! (Please note that your account has to be public in order to view your photo)
