PARIS MEN’S FASHION WEEK: PAUL SMITH SS 2013.
Before men’s wear went all avant-garde and experimental in silhouettes and fabrication, there was Paul Smith. The British designer has long been a champion of classic tailoring with a twist of English eccentricity. For spring-summer 2013, Sir Paul showed why he’s still the one of best in this game of good old-fashioned clothes for men. The collection got all the ticks in the right boxes: the colours; the tailoring and even the right amount of Mod-styling to the looks.
