Paul Smith Fashion show - MENS collection Autumn-Winter 2016/17 in Paris (with interview)

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)
