Paul Smith has collaborated with the Isle of Man Post Office to design a prestigious collection of seven stamps to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
As a lifelong follower of the World Cycling, Paul Smith was honoured to be asked to participate in this project by the Isle of Man Post Office. The island is home to heroic Olympic Cyclist, and good friend of Paul Smith, Mark Cavendish. Mark will start as one of the favourites in the Men’s Road Race, which has been chosen as the first Cycling event at the Games. The starting line on the Mall, with Buckingham Palace as the backdrop will surely be an inspiration to the Team GB cycling team. It is estimated the race will attract the single biggest crowd of the Games, with an estimated 2 million people anticipated to line the 156 Mile course.
The Paul Smith Isle of Man stamps will be officially released on 1st January 2012 and will be available to buy from Paul Smith shops globally.
