Wearability is the name of the game at Paris Fashion Week, with dozens of on-schedule designers looking to revamp the modern wardrobe with everlasting essentials. Paul Smith is the man for the job, seeing his uniquely British identity reign supreme across iconic in-house styles. The designer landed on Parisian soil to debut his technical and dapper Fall/Winter 2024 collection, taking his latest creations inside a marbled venue drenched in natural sunlight. While mirrored slabs were mounted in asymmetry, models were released in a mirage of daily apparel clad in versatile fabrics.
Paul Smith FW24 is for men in the move, seeing the highly-commercial range draw eyes far and wide. Purples, blues, greens, and yellows ruled the collection at every point, becoming instantly identifiable through casual tailoring and weekend-ready uniforms. A slim-cut nylon trench coat opened the occasion, followed by puffed outerwear and cozy ribbed knitwear with speckled detailing.
Shearling-lined aviator jackets arrived ready for flight, while premium denim received utility attachments for easy storage. Paul Smith recalled textured gilets as his favorite seasonal item, dressing his in glossy textiles. Workwear silhouettes flourished across the collection with minimalistic florets, completing the collection with several acid-washed ensembles injected with rebellion.
