The streets are full of fashionistas this week as it’s London Fashion Week. This ‘Simply Fashion’ poster was commissioned to promote the event back in 1999. The poster went alongside a special leaflet produced by Time Out. It was part of the ‘Simply’ series which included posters promoting markets, nightlife and showbiz.

Do you recognise the inspiration behind this poster? The designers Tricket & Webb have taken the iconic poster by Man Ray in 1938 as their starting point. The surrealist artist transformed the London Transport roundel into the planet Saturn. Two versions of the poster were printed, one said ‘London Transport-‘ the other said ‘Keeps London Going’.
