Who better to design a t-shirt celebrating the release of Anton Corbijn’s Joy Division biopic, Control, than the man who designed the cover of Unknown Pleasures himself? Fashion designer Paul Smith has commissioned acclaimed graphic designer Peter Saville, who was art director and co-founder of Factory Records, to design a limited edition t-shirt for the launch of Corbijn’s new film, which hits theaters on October 5. In keeping with Saville’s famously stark style, the design is very simple, referencing the pulses of a neutron star, which featured on the cover of Unknown Pleasures. It is limited to 200 pieces.
