London, Sep 2 : British fashion designer Paul Smith has collaborated with legendary rock band Led Zeppelin for his latest scarf collection.
The London-based designer has teamed-up with the band to create the accessories in celebration of the remastering of their nine studio albums, reports bangshowbiz.com.
The albums, which have been reissued in chronological order after being remastered by the band's guitarist and producer Jimmy Page, are being replicated to be produce a collection of nine scarves to go on sale exclusively in-store and online.
The 69-year-old menswear icon took on the challenging task of replicating the covers by using a photographic weaving technique to create the largely monochromatic cover of album "Led Zeppelin".
Four high quality yarns were combined to produce the eight colours of the bright "Led Zeppelin II" image, while the psychedelic "Led Zeppelin III" has been recreated using a combination of boucle and merino wool.
Only 50 scarves in each design will be available to buy when they go on sale at the official website of the brand and stores.
