London: For Spring 2015, Paul Smith put together another classic collection of ultimately wearable pieces. These were modern classics at their best in a quiet palette of khaki, china blue, grey, black, white, slate blue and a flash of red in the easy to wear stripes. There was a sense that perhaps Paul Smith drew on a picture postcard of Summer in the 20’s with dropped waist silhouettes, such as the covetable leather fringed tunic and the clever use of tea towel and muted deck chair stripes in coats, dresses and jackets. He also included easy to wear pieces – cropped blazers, shirt tunics, wide leg shorts and gave them a neat twist. – Lizzy Bowring
