The hallmarks of any great Paul Smith presentation were there for Fall/Winter 2013. Rainbow color spectrums, British tailoring and Sir Paul’s signature dash of humor lit up Paris’s Pompidou museum, a venue that seemed appropriate for the designer’s highly graphic take on traditional tailoring. There were jacket and trouser combos in mismatched hues — copper paired with turquoise, that same copper matched later on with magenta — pink bomber jackets and multicolored houndstooth knits, the patterns of which were then blown up to great visual effect. Elsewhere, splatter-print jackets and speckled tweed coats were striking updates of outerwear staples, proving that, with great tailoring, even the wild and wacky somehow work.
