Paul Smith Interview Fall/Winter 2015/2016 Menswear - Paris
Rock, style, and ease at Paul Smith.Rock, style, ease: Paul Smith knows how to perfectly mix everything to create a new silhouette each season, always with a touch of the 70s spirit, calling back to the early days of the designer’s career. The suit takes centre stage, paired with striped shirts and triangle printed t-shirts and even large graphic scarves adopting a Bauhaus theme which was the inspiration for the designer.
Paul Smith knows what works by having a global vision of the market, (he sells in 73 countries) and manages to perfectly renew the basics. For next winter, the trousers are worn high waisted, and the tunics to throw on could be an option with a shirt. Without forgetting the multiple choice of extremely long coats in fur or large multicoloured bags. To note the huge long, quilted puffa jackets in earthy tones revolving around sand, khaki and grey.
Interview Paul Smith:
The new man from Paul Smith for the fashion show - obviously we still have all the classical clothes that we do, but the silhouette is a lot bigger, the clothes are a lot more full, we’ve got higher trousers now, some flares again, and some little boot cuts – not many, colours are more muted so like browns and beiges and a sfdf of orange, (a little flurry of orange), some nice patterns in the textiles, I took the influence from Josef Albers and his wife Anni Albers, they were from the Bauhaus, (the famous Bauhaus), so they did lots of beautiful textiles that were checks and triangles, and squares and so you’ll see that in the knitwear and in the textiles You see a lot of suits, you see a lot of overcoats, you know we sell in 73 countries around the world so a lot of the countries have really cold winters and also we’ve got you know a lot of very warm coats with down and things like that. So when you’re selling around the world you have to “think global and act local”.
