Looking back on dreamlike holidays from the past, Paul Smith turns to cherished holiday photo albums and precious adventures shared with Pauline. Photographs with colours faded, and styles from the 70’s serve to inform the collection. Relaxed elegance and a colour palette of earthy tones, pale sky blues and sun-bleached holiday colours imbue the mood of the collection.
Lightweight summer fabrics including seersucker, organic cotton and 100% linen provide graceful ease of movement, re-imagining tailoring for a new era. The construction of traditional tailoring is broken down, trousers are looser and drawstring waists prevail as the wearer dictates comfort at the fore. Delving into the archive, a series of joyful floral prints emerge to feature across men’s and women’s, bringing positivity throughout.
Paul Smith is available at First Floor, Fashion Avenue, The Dubai Mall and Second Floor, Fashion Dome, Mall of Emirates.
