Ted Baker’s in-house design team has been working with the London Transport Museum on the creation of a range of clothing, staff uniforms and personal accessories.
Designs include the Ultimate Travel Suit, featuring a moquette-style lining referencing Harry Beck’s iconic Tube map and London Transport’s well-known seat upholstery designs.
Other work by Ted Baker includes travelcard holders, cufflinks, wallets, and the T-shirts now worn by staff in the museum.
The London Transport Museum reopened in November 2007, following a £2m redesign by Ralph Applebaum Associates. It includes a design gallery, curated by David Worthington, that tells the history of the venue’s much-cherished design heritage.
The museum has also been longlisted for this year’s £100 000 Art Fund Prize, formerly the Gulbenkian Prize.
Entrants will be shortlisted in April and the winner will be announced in May.
