Paul Smith“The idea behind my spring-summer ’10 collection came from my ongoing connection with music and musicians, thinking about them traveling around the world buying clothes as they went.
For instance, classic suits in London, Hawaiian shirts in the U.S., brightly colored stripes in Italy, often mixed with slim-fit trousers in a variety of colors worn with English shoes with a shorter shape than the ones we have been using, which had more of a European look. Colors for suits go from black to navy and lots of gray.
Some of the suitings are very rock ’n’ roll with a shiny finish or strong stripes — all in a very Paul Smith collection — mix it with what you want.”
