London Collections Men: Paul Smith AW15

paul smith show report lcm aw15

A strong seventies vein flowed throughout the London men’s collections this AW15 and Paul Smith was no exception. From tactile-looking fur coats to sharp broad shouldered tailoring, cinched waists to flowing silk scarves, brown and navy were constant as the colour of choice. Smith’s colourway was inspired by the travel adventures of Josef and Anni Albers, models swaggering to the soundtrack of Jamaican ska by the Toots & The Maytals. New lengths were at play, with long coats taking centre stage and falling below the knee. The angles of the tailoring was only emphasised further by the angular nature of the event, featuring a triangular invite, triangular t-shirts and necklaces and even triangular seating.

Accessories didn’t manage to escape from the overarching themes either, with leather holdalls sporting outlandish faux fur trims alongside signature Paul Smith prints. A new age mood managed to permeate throughout, assisted by cheeky glances from the male models on show, giving the entire show a sober but playful mood.
