Paul Weller x Sunspel Autumn / Winter '22 just released.
Paul Weller has once again collaborated with the great fashion brand Sunspel. This new collection follows the success of his first from back in Spring 2021. This time the collection focus's on clothes Paul regards as indispensable winter staples, he is quoted as saying about the design process ‘On both collections we’ve worked the same way, I bring in some sketches and some colour references sometimes a picture of an old garment for inspiration. David (Telfer, Sunspel’s creative director) and his team draw this into a proper design and the we look at how to match the colours to what I have in mind...’ The collection has already garnering a lot of attention, and it is available now here!
Dean worked closely with Sunspel's creative director David Telfer and the creative agency Studio Small to develop the campaign.
Throughout the years Dean has photographed Paul Weller many times through the years and he always really enjoys their meetings, 'It was brilliant catching up with Paul again, as well as taking lots of photographs we talked about music and all manner of style stuff as is always the way... '.
As an aside from the Sunspel collaboration, some of Dean's memories of Paul Weller and his band The Style Council are included in the extremely collectable book 'Soul Deep'. This book was made initially as a hard back and then latterly as a soft back see here, unfortunately both version sold out very quickly are out of print currently.
