Folio Society – Paul Smith bags for men SS17

From classic business folios to colourful Concertina bags and eye-catching statement pieces, the Paul Smith bag collection has something for every occasion.

No.9 Albemarle Street Slim Business Folio

Men’s brown slim business folio with an embossed pattern inspired by the award-winning cast iron façade of London’s flagship Paul Smith shop, No.9 Albemarle Street.

Made in Spain from a soft Italian calf leather, this folio is drum-dyed and softened using a staking machine and finished with a semi-aniline lacquered effect that provides a luxurious waxy touch.

Internally, this business folio is lined in blue and violet suede and features a large brown leather lined internal gold Italian zip fastening pocket and two brown leather slip pockets.

  • Gold hardware
  • Internal black Paul Smith signature embossed leather patch
  • Leather protected base
  • A Paul Smith dust bag is included

No.9 Albemarle Street

No 9 Albemarle Street’s patterned façade reinterprets the design language of the 18th Century Georgian townhouse beneath. The repeating elliptical motif of interlocking circles, rendered in cast iron, nods to ornamental Regency forms, creating a delicate, modernist pattern from a subversively heavyweight material.

The cast iron frontage firmly locates No.9 Albemarle Street within its Mayfair surroundings, mirroring the area’s characteristic street furniture of iron railings, grates, balconies and lamp posts.

For the new leather goods collection, embossed leather replaces cast iron. The traditional craft of leather production and embossing results in leather accessories that capture the same uniquely British amalgam of heavy industry and handcrafted construction.

No.9 Business Folio £695
