For Fall/Winter 2017, British fashion designer Sir Paul Smith did what he does best by delivering his signature “traditional with a twist” styling. The menswear veteran joined many others in hosting his first co-ed runway show at Paris Fashion Week at the Êcole des Beaux-Artes. Quintessential British style and fine tailoring took the center stage for this season’s sartorial offering. The show’s opening look paired a women’s navy and green tartan pantsuit alongside a men’s coat in the same patterned fabric, followed by several other iterations of the textile motif. Genderless outfits were tailored with an astute eye for proportions to flatter both women’s and men’s figures, whereas Smith’s dandy aesthetic peeped through by way of velvet suits, fitted waistcoats and silk blouses with kitsch prints. Feathers, paisley and exotic birds from an 18th-century British bird watching book appeared throughout the collection as a nod to the label’s heritage. Subtle streetwear influences bled into the collection in the form of leather jackets, parkas and sneakers, showing the collection’s versatility. Take a look at the Paul Smith 2017 Fall/Winter menswear collection above and make sure to keep up with our Paris Fashion Week coverage here.
