PALLADIUM

70 years of exploration

Since their foundation as a manufacturer of airplane tyres in the 1920's, Palladium has been at the forefront of exploration. This spirit of exploration continues with strong ties to the music scene stretching over the last 70 years. Having been discovered during the grunge and rave scenes of the 1990’s, their iconic Pampa boot soon became a fashionable look on a global scale, selling one million pairs of boots in a single year!

The History of Smiley and Music

Smiley has been a music icon for over four decades. Ever present on the sleeves of the most seminal albums, at festivals, in nightclubs, and influencing the fashions created by multiple musical genres. For this reason Smiley and music will be intrinsically linked forever!


Undefined
  • SMILEY ENTERS ROCK HISTORY

    In the 1970's Smiley begins its long standing association with music. Smiley features on the artwork of the Windsor Free Festival in 1972. In 1977 Smiley appears on the original record cover of iconic single Psycho Killer by legendary rock and roll band the Talking Heads.

  • SMILEY ICON OF HOUSE MUSIC

    Smiley is adopted as an icon of the acid house movement by DJ’s and clubbers worldwide. Acid House is named after the bass sound produced by the Roland TB-303 electronic synthesizer-sequencer as dance music explodes to the forefront of popular culture. In 1988 Smiley appears on the cover of Bomb the Bass’s global chart topping single Beat Dis.

  • SMILEY SYMBOL OF GRUNGE

    A new sound sweeps out of Seattle in the USA and explodes onto the world stage. Nirvana, who would become one of the most famous bands of all time, choose to use a Smiley on their most famous merchandise. As a result of this Smiley becomes closely associated with the fashion and style of the grunge era.

  • SMILEY AT FESTIVAL FOREFRONT

    After 30 years at the forefront of music culture, Smiley is a hero brand at music festivals and an icon of global club culture. Smiley features on album artwork of Blink 182’s iconic self-titled album and in Gnarls Barkley's Smiley Faces. In 2007 Smiley sponsors Sonar International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art in Barcelona.

  • SMILEY HAPPINESS MOVEMENT

    The happiness revolution kicks into full swing as Pharrell Williams releases Happy, which sells 13.9 million units worldwide. Katy Perry wears bespoke Smiley outfit on her ‘Prismatic’ world tour and some of the world’s biggest DJ’s and musicians are pictured out in Smiley including; Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora, Skrillex and Nicki Minaj highlighting the emotional connection musicians have to Smiley.
