For the Paul Smith Spring/Summer 2015 collection light, fabrics have an elegant delicacy, tailoring’s deconstructed and detailing has a masculine feel. The brand presents an honest and effortless way of dressing for the new collection.
The palette of natural colors is complimented by swathes of raw and tactile fabrics. Rough linen sits alongside smooth satin and twill cotton is punctuated with panels of sheer silk. Technical tailoring fabrics have life and versatility that compliments the functional, wearable tone that runs throughout the collection.
Deconstructing the form of a dinner shirt, buttoned collars are replaced with roll necks, while the sleeves are shortened for a relaxed formal look.
Trouser styles vary from, nipped tuxedo pants to breezy culottes.
Gold accessories are finished with an oversized cufflink charm and sunglasses are framed in pink and purple. Origami style bags seen on the men’s Spring/Summer 2015 catwalk are redesigned from fabrics inspired by the women’s clothing. Sandals and strapped stilettos are constructed in raw leather.
