Paul Smith Autumn/Winter 2016

Paul Smith menswear for Autumn Winter 2016 is an elegant, detailed collection that references the modern bohemian gentlemen inspired by Venice and Warren Ellis from the band ‘Bad Seeds’.

The neat, short and refined pieces of the collection are contrasted with oversized shapes and sportswear detailing.

Double breasted overcoats, soft capes and full length parkas are combined with tapered pleated trousers to maintain the soft silhouette.

The colour palette is dark with five groups dominating; purple, red, teak, Prussian blue and aubergine.

Fabrics are sleek and opulent made from rare fibres; camel, Alpaca, mohair and Angora alongside cashmere and silk to achieve a relaxed, lightweight and draped shape.

Check out the entire collection.
