SMILEY LONDON: BORN OUT OF THE LONDON RAVE SCENE, IMMORTALISED AS THE ICON OF GLOBAL DANCE MUSIC CULTUREPosted: 07/11/2014
The Smiley face was forever immortalised as the iconic image of the acid house music movement in the 1980s. During this ground breaking time for global dance music and club culture the Smiley image was adopted by almost every clubber and raver globally and adorned every dance floor from London to Chicago.
This was the beginning of a special relationship between house music and Smiley that has spanned over 25 years and remains as strong today as it was back in the day.
Smiley London pays homage to over two decades of UK dance music and DJ culture, a capsule collection dedicated to the electronic movement.
For SS15 Smiley London launches a completely new interpretation of the Smiley face, with the entire collection consisting of monochrome styles and prints and an occasional trademark Smiley yellow colour pop.
Sublimation prints feature heavily across men’s and women’s crew neck t-shirts and loose vests, while transitional hoodies & jumpers are emblazoned with bold slogans. Snap back caps make a return, as well as an introduction for this season of a premium sweatpant.
Drawing influence from over two decades of block rocking beats, the unforgettable raves and the unique fashions that keep London at the forefront of street culture.
Smiley had a headline slot at this years Dutch music festival ‘RetroPop’, which was played out this month in front of a sold out 10,000 raucous crowd.
This 1980s heritage pop music festival featured a host of top names and was headlined by iconic band Simple Minds.
All festival staff were resplendent in Smiley tee shirts and Smiley supplied bespoke artwork throughout the event site.
Decks were spinning, tunes were playing and drinks were flowing as crowds flocked to Boxpark on this sunny evening to be part of a new concept music event and get involved in the DJ scene.

It’s official “Smiley is topping the charts and the Premier League with celebrities this week.”
Despite having an unbelievably successful 12 months that included his band RUDIMENTAL topping the UK charts and even winning a Brit Award for “Best Single of the Year”, that didn’t stop Amir Amor from pulling a sad face for the Smiley cam. We hope that his Pony X Smiley sweatshirt and Smiley sunglasses cheered him up a little!
WALES International Joe Ledley on the other hand looked extremely Smiley in his mesh tee shirt. It’s difficult to expect anything other than happiness after the goalscoring midfielder played a huge part in CRYSTAL PALACE’S spectacular end to the Premier League season. Palace hauled themselves from the foot of the EPL to mid table safety with wins against Chelsea and an amazing comeback against Liverpool.
Keep your eyes peeled for a host of other celebrities wearing Smiley in the coming months.
