Paul Smith is a global brand with a distinctly British style. Summed up perfectly by their multi-colour striped Mini Cooper, the brand combines a vintage style with a colourful, modern twist.
Inspired by South Colorado art from the 1960s, the A/W collection has bold, geometric designs and a vintage feel. But there’s one design in particular that has influenced this season’s range, and that’s the geodesic pattern.
Deep in the Colorado Desert, artists in the Drop City commune created free-standing domes using this pattern as a physical structure. And now, around fifty years later, it’s an eye-catching pattern on a collection of Paul Smith shirts.
It’s these influences, plucked from the history of art and design, which make Paul Smith such a fascinating brand to follow.
Here we take a look at some of our top picks from Paul Smith Jeans this A/W.
