PS by Paul Smith AW17 Preview

Paul Smith has chosen Pitti Immagine Uomo 91 as the stage to preview the new PS by Paul Smith collection for autumn/winter ’17.

PAUL ON PITTI

“I first worked with Pitti in 1993 and was the first designer to have a catwalk show in the iconic Stazione Leopolda. Twenty years on I’m looking forward to showing in Florence again and hopefully bringing an element of surprise!”

INTRODUCING PS by PAUL SMITH

PS by Paul Smith has all the hallmarks of Paul Smith: bold colour, vivid print, and playful detailing. Strongly influenced by sportswear and Paul’s love of cycling, the collection is designed with life-proof features for the way we live now.

AUTUMN/WINTER ’17

Classic cycling jerseys and the colour-blocked artwork of Poul Gernes influenced this season’s colour palette.

For the styling, the blending of sportswear and tailoring looks to the influential Buffalo movement of the 1980s, led by Ray Petri. The AW17 PS by Paul Smith will begin to arrive in shops from July.

 

THE CITY-CYCLING SUIT

Cut from incredibly durable Cordura fabric, this all-action suit is equal to anything you can throw at it.

THE PACK-AWAY MAC

This much-loved mac shape now comes in super lightweight, shower resistant nylon. The jacket packs away into an internal mesh pocket so you can carry it with you wherever you go.

THE KEEP-DRY PARKA

Designed to shield you against the elements, this fully waterproof and breathable parka is made from three-layer fabric with fully taped seams and laser cut edges.

THE BE-SEEN JACKET

Lightweight, packable and shower resistant, this colourful jacket will shield the urban cyclist from biting winds and unexpected showers. The jacket features reflective detailing for safety and can pack down into its own PS by Paul Smith musette bag when not in use.

THE 2-IN-1 JACKET

Embodying the principle of versatility, the 2-in-1 Jacket gives you the luxury of choice: is it a day for a classic colour or a vibrant check?

THE STAY-SHARP TROUSER

Refreshing an iconic trouser shape from British mod and skinhead culture, this durable style has a permanent crease that will stay looking sharp wash after wash.
