Sir Paul Smith started his career in fashion at the age of 16, with a menial job in a clothing warehouse in Nottingham. Now 69, he's built a global clothing empire spanning around 70 countries, with over 200 shops in Japan alone. Defined by an instantly recognisable brand of English eccentricity (think peeps of Union Jack lining, pinstripe tailoring with outlandish pocket draws, brogues with a flash of colour at the laces), the Paul Smith label is one of the UK's best loved sartorial success stories. First held in London a couple of years back, this Ueno exhibition recreates Smith's office in its entirety, providing a key to his eclectic tastes and sources of inspiration. It also details his rags-to-riches career path – rebuilding his miniscule first store in the museum, showing archive collections, and of course, a vast number of the antiques and art that frame Sir Paul's network of neverending ideas.
