Paul Smith SS12 – London Fashion Week
Paul Smith’s Spring Summer 2012 collection was all about boy meets girl. The collection had many threads to it, not all connecting mind you, except for the mannish tailoring. Pants came in diverse cuts and fabrications. There were low slung silk pyjama style pants, cropped tailored wide leg pants and high waist varieties offered in plaid and fresh summer hues. The injection of cobalt blue. yellow and grass green brought a fresh accent to the collection and offered some interesting colour blocking options. In addition to the colour blocking story there was also a neutrals story and at the latter part of the parade a dark digital print, which was abstract and water colour in it’s appearance, added another accent to the show. All in all the pieces would connect with many a women’s wardrobe.
