Paul Smith AW11/12

Paul Smith. How does he do it?

I have not one thing to criticise. Classic lines, comfortable styling, serious silhouettes and playful spots. Soft and hard, feminine and masculine. Wools, tweeds, velvets, silks and chiffons. And don't even get me started on his perpetually AMAZING colour choice.

Lovely lovely lovely.

Iris Van Herpen
