Paul Smith’s latest collection is perfect for the great outdoors
Paul Smith demonstrates how suits can be all play and no work
Paul Smith’s presentation at the recent London Collections: Men (LC:M) features freestyle stunt cyclist Ben Savage, taking forward the brand’s ‘A Suit To Travel In’ story.
Manufactured in Italy, the summer suits are constructed using unlined and loosely woven cloth. The colours are bold and the construction, contemporary.
Savage puts the fabric’s breathability and crease resistance to test as he takes his cycle for a spin, balancing precariously on art pieces.
The suits are available in five colours with windowpane checks, and in navy, minus checks. The Corozo nut buttons get their hardness from the use of dense fibres. Depending on one’s body type, one can opt for Slim, Soho and Mayfair fits.
