About the book
Artists and fashion designers have a rich history of collaboration. Now nine pairs, including some of the biggest names in British fashion and art—Paul Smith and Hussein Chalayan, Gavin Turk and Matt Collishaw—have worked together, making sculpture, fantastical garments, and even a sound work. Created as part of the Cultural Olympiad for London 2012, this lush package presents the fruits of their partnerships in two stunning books, eight separate posters of the finished works, and a CD, all in a beautifully designed box. When great minds collide, amazing things happen.
