Paul Weller’s A Thousand Things celebrated its launch last night at the flagship Paul Smith store in Covent Garden, London. Copies of the limited edition were on display alongside framed photographs from the book, all set to the backdrop of Paul Smith’s handsome clothes. Weller released his new album, ‘22 Dreams’ the same day but, although very busy, both Paul and Sir Paul Smith took the time to sign an Epiphone Casino guitar donated by Gibson that will be auctioned for charity later this year. A Thousand Things proved very popular with the guests, among them Genesis designer Simon Halfon and author Geoff MacCormack whose travels with Bowie from 1973-76 are the subject of his signed limited edition, From Station to Station. Noted photographers such as Lawrence Watson and Pennie Smith mingled with musicians from Hard-Fi and The Kaiser Chiefs, as well as footballer Lee Dixon, and DJs Gary Crowley and Eddie Piller, all coming together in respect for the Modfather.
Genesis would like to thank everyone at Paul Smith for hosting the event and all those that attended.
