Paul Smith Does Sporty Separates with a Bit of Fringe

No contributor

Paul Smith certainly hit the nail on some trends that have been circulating the catwalks of New York City, and now carrying on abroad to London. For his spring/summer 2015 collection, he envisioned that girl on the move: the majority of shoes became flattened, large tote bags clutched, and most looks were conceived in pieces—even long shirtdresses were paired with knee-length skirts. The collection appeared a bit tame for the label, as colors were muted and the usual prints were recycled for variations on a pinstriped suit, but nonetheless, the clothing appeared practical and always youthful.

In addition, there were few standout looks at the end that illustrated small floral patterns in a fine china blue, which complimented similar pale color schemes—this is what Sir Paul Smith does best.

This collection could be grouped within the trend of “sporty,” but in a whimsical light, as Smith’s high-heeled shoes resemble those Teva sport sandals, which have reemerged in go-to stylish shops like Opening Ceremony and Urban Outfitters. As for proportion, his garments were cut masculine and hems were dropped to create an oversized slouch. There were little ornamentations like sheer silk and fringe that provided a glimpse of femininity, but on the whole, his woman demonstrated boyish qualities. The brilliance of this collection, like many before, is that each look is easily dissectible and pieces could be rearranged so that the Paul Smith girl can live both the corporate and free-spirited lifestyle.
