April77 Pays Homage to New Order LP

Mar 25, 2014

Peter Saville (shown above) is an accomplished and multi-talented British art director/graphic designer whose work has traversed music, fashion, sports and culture in general. He has designed classic album covers and executed art projects for upper echelon designers like Jil Sander, Yohji Yamamoto, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney.  In 2010, he even designed uniforms for the English national soccer team.

During the ’80s, he was the head art designer at Factory Records, and during his tenure, he created memorable artwork for iconic groups like Joy Division, New Order and many more.

April77, a progressive French clothing brand inspired by youth movements and denim history has created a limited box-edition of graphic t-shirts paying homage to the 30th anniversary of the release of New Order’s, Power, Corruption and Lies, (its artwork was designed by Saville). Lovers of New-wave-y, synthesizer sounds collectively herald this album as the golden grail of ‘80s synth music.

The classic album cover was re-created with real flowers shot by Natalie Weiss, and it’s a reinterpretation of the painting “A Basket of Roses” by Henri Fantin-Latour. (See the shirt below).

The “Tribute to Peter Saville” t-shirt will be sold in an ultra-limited edition boxset, exclusively at the April77  store in Paris on May 16th.

April77 Store Location: Shop 7-9, Rue de Charonne, Paris
