Had it not been for a serious crash in his teens, the fashion designer and style icon Paul Smith might have pursued a career as a racing cyclist.
This scrapbook showcases Paul’s favourite people, races and places in the cycling world through the images and personalities that inspired him. From his collection of cycling jerseys and his extensive library of cycling publications of the 1950s and 1960s to the inspiration he found in early heroes such as Fausto Coppi and Jacques Anquetil, his collaborations with bike-makers (Mercian, Condor, Gary Fisher and Pinarello) and his friendships with contemporary stars of the road and track, including David Millar, Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish, this is a personal and highly visual journey that connects Smith’s love of cycling with his love of design.
