Paul Smith is a man who has had impact on fashion. Since he founded his business in Nottingham in the 70s, he had gone on to commercial and critical acclaim internationally, turning men on to style.
Known for his wit, this season Smith took neat, 60s infused cool – leather jackets and slim tailoring – and amped up the colour, sending 43 looks of unabashed optimism down his peppermint catwalk. The collection offered something for everyone, whether a wardrobe-brightning statement piece or going total-look, head to T-barred toe. The appeal was instant either way.
