To celebrate the release of David Bowie’s new album, “The Next Day,” Paul Smith has collaborated with the rocker on a T-shirt available as of today.

The organic cotton T-shirt, printed with Jonathan Barnbrook’s black-and-white album cover artwork with the  words "Paul Smith for David Bowie" scribbled just below it, will certainly be a cool addition to any Bowie fan’s closet. But what really interests us is the prospect of additional collaborative pieces.

According to the press materials accompanying the T-shirt announcement, Smith and Bowie are longtime friends, and the British fashion designer is quoted as saying there’s more to come.

"David Bowie has worn a lot of Paul Smith throughout his career,” Smith said, “and I was excited and delighted when asked if I would do the official T-shirt for his album 'The Next Day.' There will also be some other great things coming up later in the year."

Men’s and women’s versions of the T-shirt ($145) are available through the label’s website, with the men’s tee hitting bricks-and-mortar Paul Smith boutiques (including the 8221 Melrose Ave. store locally) and select retailers.  

Bowie’s “The Next Day” is to be released Tuesday in the U.S.
