Designer: paul smithlocation: bourse de commerce in parisinspiration: winks to the past, to the loves of paul smith while projecting towards the future, with new urbansfocus: liberty and paisley patterns in embroideries, on jeans, on prints on a suit, on a sweater, socks+ bands of colour or simple stripes on the trouser suits or coats+ 3 new forms of trousers- skinny, straight, and flaresto note: the peace & love symbol which is found on the belt, the shoes+ the band- sound between ragga and rock, with david bowie for the finaleinterview from paul smith: i’m embracing my past, really i’m looking at things that i’ve done. i think that the wheel of fashion turns around.pattern on pattern, liberty prints, shirting, colour and embroidery, new jeans, new shapes. they’re all looking so good again now. so luckily i have a big history, so there has been a lot of change. the women’s collection has taken on a completely new energy as well. the men’s and the women’s are running in parallel now which is very good. if you think about 3 or 4 years ago it was mostly about suits, then it became jackets and trousers and now it is jackets and trousers again but the trousers could be a jean and the jacket could be worn in a way that is mixed with lots of different patterns. the collection maybe early paul smith style, it is not a retro show but rather using some of the methods of manufacturing clothes that i used when i first started. so it’s a lot more about hand work, not so homogenised and a lot more individuality.music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
