Earlier this month Twin wrote about Paul Smith’s exhibition Hello my Name is Paul Smith, at the Design Museum. From last week the exhibition, which takes visitors on a journey through Paul Smith’s world, is now open for the public.

And to celebrate this the fashion designer will be signing copies of his new book ‘Hello My Name is Paul Smith’ on Friday 22 November between 12.30pm – 1.30pm in the Design Museum Shop.

The book ‘Hello, My Name is Paul Smith’ is published by Rizzoli priced £40, and is available from the Design Museum Shop.

The exhibition is open until March 9 2014 and offers an insight into Paul Smith’s creative influences and fashion designs over the last 40 years.

Twin Loves LV X MJ

“Necessity is the mother of all invention” So goes the saying, and so it was that in 1858, trunk packer Louis Vuitton innovated a stackable luggage trunk to ease transportation of the prodigious wardrobes of travelling madams et mademoiselles. In doing so, the wheels were set in motion for a brand now estimated to be worth over $19 billion.

Those wheels are turning faster than ever over a century later, under the skilled tutorship of Marc Jacobs. The brand and its designer, whose signature sense of irreverence and fun has seen models arrive on the catwalk via a full-size carousel and most recently, a moving locomotive engine – complete with steam – are now the subject of a new exhibition: Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs.

Two floors of the Louvre’s Musee des Arts Decoratifs, have been dedicated to exhibiting the French luggage icon and its Artistic Director since 2007. “Marc always starts with the bag”, says curator Pamela Golbin of Jacobs’ approach to each collection, and all 53 bags he has designed for LV are among the exhibits – which include those original

If you find yourself in Paris between now and September and have more than a passing interest in art or fashion, don’t miss it.

Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs is at Musee des Arts Decoratifs until 16 september 2012. The official book of the exhibition by curator, Pamela Golbin, is published by Rizzoli in April.
