Spreading peace through the power of colour.
Paul Smith continues to promote the message of peace and positivity through an optimistic use of colour and print in his spring/summer 2017 showcase. The ‘60s has a profound effect on Smith as he updates 1960s tailoring references with super-lightweight construction and highly breathable Italian wool fabrics. With its trademark use of plethora of colours, Smith adds a dash of West Indies influence through combinations of yellow, green and red to create a series of vibrant stripes. These vivid hues also make their presence felt in the tropical tartan fabric. The tartan bomber with a contrast collar and striped espadrilles will brighten up any day. In addition, a bold ‘17’ graphic dates the collection and offers hope that this year will be happier and more peaceful.
