Ever since I worked in retail years ago, Paul Smith has been one of my favorite men’s designers. When looking for traditional textiles and classic styles, the British brand is the way to go. For their Fall/Winter 2013 show during Paris fashion week, the label infused their signature silhouettes with modern touches. The brand showed off their collection at the Pompidou museum- one of my favorite places to visit in Paris. Definitely check it out if you find yourself visiting the City of Light.
Paul Smith played with houndstooth and Mondrian patterns, along with splattered effects for his autumn collection. Personally, I loved their color combinations for their suit looks and their take on modernizing the classic houndstooth black-white print to more colorful hues. On the flip side, I wasn’t a fan of their over-sized fluffy sweaters or animal-printed jackets. That said, their animal-printed duffle was super hot. Check out my ten favorite looks below.
