Showing his first collection in Paris, Paul Smith has since established himself as the preeminent British designer, sparking off trends not only in fashion but in the wider context of popular culture. Presented twice a year in Paris, the Paul Smith collection is the designer’s signature line; perennial favourites are found within a clean modern collection with discreet emphasis on signature detailing, ranging from traditional hand stitched lapels to exclusive fabric.
Looking to a bright future, Paul Smith’s Autumn/Winter ’18 collection escapes to a more peaceful and positive place with dreamlike colours and motifs, fantastical embroidery and a softening of
traditional sartorial codes.
The label’s signature Artist Stripe detail brightens up handsome wardrobe staples such as polo shirts, jumpers and cardigans for a vibrant pop of colour, while the collection also incorporates stylish trainers featuring the iconic stripes for off-duty dressing.
With tailoring forever at the heart of Paul Smith, the collection celebrates the suit and reasserts its relevance, with confident statement suits presented within the AW18 collection. The added length in jackets is a nod to Paul’s own past when in the Eighties he led a confident movement to relax the suit.
