PAUL SMITH

Spring/Summer '16

Paul Smith: independent company, independent mind. With curiosity, simplicity, humour and an elegant oddness, Paul Smith has been dressing individuals from the start. For spring/summer 16, inspiration comes from independent minds

Playing to our strengths, colour and print are key and suit shapes are refined but distinctive.

The palette takes influence from David Hockney’s
unmatchable eye for colour. Bolts of bright summer
hues of blue, orange and green sit alongside more tonal shades.

A loose and painterly approach to print is a common thread and brushstrokes are woven into tailoring cloth. Photographic print, which has long been at the heart of Paul Smith, recurs throughout the collection.

With no fixed silhouette for the season, every look is different but unified through tailoring, confident and positive use of colour and a free-spirited attitude.
