At Paul Smith, London

The color combinations at this show were so inspiring. The rust top, purple belt, and grey pants were just about perfect

Yes, beautiful show indeed. Very much liking the transparent brogues/oxfords in photo no.3.



Blogger tiffany. said ... (2:43 PM) : 

backwards sweater?? hmmm i'd like to see how that looks in the front ;))



Blogger Judy C said ... (2:43 PM) : 

It seems that all of the outfits need a really skinny body. And the shorts/jacket thing? I don't know.


Blogger edge and grace said ... (2:44 PM) : 

i ADORE your last shot of the Paul Smith fashion show. I wish I could wear that to work. :)



Blogger Dailan said ... (2:44 PM) : 

Errrr... Someone forgot to put some pants on! ;D
Great pieces, as usual at Paul Smith's.

The colours here are fantastic
Beautiful pieces


Blogger - GraceCarolina said ... (2:46 PM) : 

I'm really liking the shade of purple they're's very cute. Also, interesting how they tied up the belts, it's quite an ongoing trend right now to loop the ends of belts.


Blogger Noumia's papers said ... (2:49 PM) : 

It's a good show, I love the second look !



Blogger Sing said ... (3:00 PM) : 

The piled belts, love.


Anonymous mademoiselle sophie said ... (3:06 PM) : 

i seem to be going against the flow, but love the shirt as dress + jacket + slip-on city shoes .. new ways to/for-wards the androgynous style. all these are very inspiring to me.


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (3:07 PM) : 

I love the shirtdress with the multiple belts as well as some of the backwards items. The colors are great! x


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:09 PM) : 

A fine color theme indeed. Love the leather slippers with the briefcase.

And the buttons on the sleeves.

And the triple belts.

Pretty much everything.

Paul Smith makes me proud to be British. Love the purple all in one...


Anonymous Isa said ... (3:57 PM) : 

I love the pants ! So class and so british ... On the first pic, it's look like Katherine Hepburn style, one of my favorite.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:57 PM) : 

Your post reminds me of when I saw a man wearing a purple V-neck sweater with gray pants while I was sitting in a café in Paris. This guy was so elegant, and on top of that his phone ring was the guitar intro of David Bowie's "China Girl".


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:58 PM) : 

paul smith- my favourite! love the belts!


Blogger Lydia said ... (4:02 PM) : 

I am in passionate, deep, sartorialist love with this collection. the second look made me sigh audibly. love that you featured it here.


Blogger Jasmin said ... (4:05 PM) : 

These colors are so elegant!!!


Anonymous greendress said ... (4:15 PM) : 

yes, the colors of that show were interesting - both the colors that were in it and the colors that were rejected. the sad thing is that it was the first of the london shows where i remarked the LACK of color and therefore made me feel sick to my stomach because when i think of london, i think of the beautiful colors in london.


Blogger saradowle said ... (4:18 PM) : 

I love the colours!
Great to see you're in London!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:31 PM) :

The colors are luscious. Love all the shoes too. Total inspiration.


Blogger Julie said ... (5:23 PM) : 

That purple color?! It is so fantastic-love the crazy overlapping belt with the jumpsuit.


Blogger MJCK said ... (5:55 PM) : 

Oh my, this is exactly what I love. I also love the hairdo, how do manage to get it like that?!


Blogger Vfriedrich said ... (6:13 PM) : 

I love this fascination with wine-inspired colors (i.e. Merlot and Cab) warm and cozy. XOXO Valerie


Blogger Louise said ... (6:23 PM) : 

Colour combinations absolutely gorgeous. Love the flash of yellow underneath the shoe in picture two. Such classic clothes worn with an inspiring palette of colour.



Anonymous Read said ... (6:45 PM) : 

Awesome button pattern on that jacket. Oh, and nice legs too.


Blogger Rafael Franco said ... (6:49 PM) : 

I love the belts and the shorts+jacket thing.

Love them all! I cannot decide!


Blogger Prêt à Porter P said ... (7:00 PM) : 

I'm attracted to the button placement on the cuffs of the jacket. I'm such a sucker for buttons.


Blogger vintage1944 said ... (7:12 PM) : 

Loving the whole look;the colours,the shapes,the drape of the fabrics,the accessories and the models do not look half starved.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:37 PM) : 

love, love, love, love, sir paul and always have but this collection is the best in a long time. color, silhouette, the always fun details, and the shoes.... ahhhh... glad you like it too. I finally like something that a saavy fashion person likes!


Blogger No Alice No said ... (7:39 PM) : 

The combination of colours are definitely inspiring.
Also the combination of boyish and femininity.



Blogger Tiffany's Small World said ... (7:45 PM) : 

beautiful!love the sweater


Blogger Margo said ... (8:38 PM) : 

This is the first fashion show you have shot that actually makes sense to me, as in, I understand the style and where it is pushing out a new look. Wonderful! I agree that the colors are great - easy to look at but not boring. I especially love the eggplant jumpsuit with the multiple orange belts. And even the poufy French twist hair. Just really inspiring. THank you.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:54 PM) : 

The fit of the trousers in the first and third shots are very Katherine Hepburn. Masculine and elegant tones.


Blogger i want what she's wearing said ... (9:11 PM) : 

Love love love the backwards cardigan.


Anonymous Dana said ... (9:20 PM) : 

I love the palette. I shall go to right now to view the show!


Blogger Jane See said ... (9:48 PM) : 

Love this collection! I totally dig how they used the belt on the purple piece.


Blogger Petey said ... (9:49 PM) : 

Ah, I remember wearing backwards cardigans in high school - after my Mom told me about wearing hers that way back in the '40's! Such a great detail.


Blogger Ashley said ... (10:31 PM) : 

The purple is just gorge. And I love the last shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 PM) : 

The colors are wonderful, but the backwards sweater...the's so circa 1985-1995. Leave the past in the past.


Blogger Rodrigo Pineapple said ... (11:10 PM) : 

owww so cute and inspiring, love it ♥


Blogger JAN BRADEL said ... (11:39 PM) : 

Every so often that eggplant color makes a reappearance. Not a fan.

An artist´s palette

Blogger Elizabeth Fay said ... (3:04 AM) : 

Now this is inspiring fashion. Trust London in all its wayward charm to come up with something so simple and elegant. Love the purple piece as well as the rust top and grey pants. So classy, comfy and elegant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:18 AM) : 

yes it's great colour combinations but pretty standard in terms of the english gentry. Go to badminton ( the place not the game) and you would see.

Must now search for a purple belt!


Blogger Liz S said ... (9:49 AM) : 

I do love all of these--esp the purple colour--it has a touch of magenta which gives it that bit of extra vibrancy.
Those loose pants though are hard to wear when short and/or solid around the lower half.


Blogger ABEGAIL BARRIOS said ... (10:03 AM) : 




Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (10:38 AM) : 

To be honest, I was really intrigued by the background of the catwalk, with all these frames. :)


Blogger 'S' said ... (10:56 AM) : 

lovin the mix of belts!!!!


Anonymous Megan said ... (11:07 AM) : 

Rust colour, brown n purple - mmmm... colours of autumn!


Anonymous all-in-the-silhouette said ... (11:22 AM) : 

Love all of these looks. The simple, clean makeup and hair, the earthy palette, the tailored but feminine drape, ending in (finally!) an elegant shoe.

you might check out this article for some historical context:

vassar was a big part of the original women in ivy movement

Backwards cardigan. Brilliant.

Shirtdress plus pantsuit = Shirtsuit. Brilliant.

Purple. Brilliant.

Suit minus trousers = Not so much.

All photos together. Who wouldn't want to dress like this!


Anonymous Fashion said ... (1:27 PM) : 

Interesting backwards cardigan, I wish there was a shot to see what it looks like from the front though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:50 PM) : 

I love love love this collection, but when I went to the Paul Smith web site (to see if I could purchase any of it online,) it wasn't there. Huh?


Blogger A la Femme said ... (5:01 PM) : 

This was such a stunning collection!!


Blogger Nicole said ... (5:07 PM) : 

Looove the first shot. It's very Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story.


Anonymous Luca said ... (1:10 AM) : 

The model+styling of the first photo is rather reminiscent of Tilda Swinton (i love it)

I see a movement in fashion to a rather boxy, elegantly masculine silhouette--rather Katherine Hepburn-ish.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:18 AM) : 

havn't really notice the unique purple of the belts till you mentioned it.
Great show indeed. love the etherial masculinity.


Blogger Fashion Geek chronicles said ... (8:14 AM) :

Thank you Mr.Smith!

I love this collection. The color combinations are beautiful, and the clothing looks extremely comfortable. I probably wouldn't wear the tiny little panties though, not at my age.


Blogger LimtdEdition said ... (1:09 PM) : 

My fave is the 3rd look! Its something about the structure baggy fit and the play on the belts :)


Blogger stacey kelly said ... (3:28 AM) : 

wow this is SO modern but SO classic... and the overall affect is so chic!


Blogger Alex said ... (8:07 PM) : 

love PS. Hate the store of PS near mine.... Who is Buyer????? Change!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:20 AM) : 

lovely purple jumpsuit, now how many belts you want with that?


Anonymous ashlee said ... (12:55 PM) : 

my first reaction to the backwards cardi was one of confusion, but after looking at it for a bit i realized how much i love it! i always love an interesting back, and a button down with skin showing through is very clever. i'd probably do this look with a cardigan that doesn't have a pocket, but i love the idea!


Anonymous Lilou said ... (5:14 PM) : 

Nice stuff!


Blogger Eilish said ... (10:35 PM) : 

i love the back to front cardigan :)
