Paris, July 2, 2012 – ‘Optimism’ is at the heart of Paul Smith’s Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Delivering more colour than a pack of Skittles, Paul Smith offers up some remarkable dandy/Mod inspired fashion. Vibrant, crisply tailored, slim fitting suits are at the core of SS13, in single and double-breasted varieties. Look for some crazy zippered leather jackets – haven’t seen anything like this since MJ’s Beat-It.
Is the world ready for men’s puffed out pleated men’s trousers? A few designers seem to think so. In addition to the incredible suits, Moroccan-inspired sandals (love these), light sweaters, clean white dress shirts, and cool neckties round off a collection light on outerwear and handbags. This and FW11 have to be our favourite Paul Smith collections. They feature exemplary British tailoring, creativity and rich colour that we love.
