Paris: Paul Smith appeared to take inspiration from the desert this season. A mix of long-over-long layered silhouettes topped with billowing woven scarves had an exotic, nomadic feel. Print and pattern also emphasized the theme; authentic Kilim rug motifs appeared on tunics and coats, while bright flamingos and palm tree graphics were a more kitsch interpretation. — Anna Jane Davis
