Paul Smith at Paris Fashion Week saw a catwalk surrounded by plants and cacti, rekindling the feelings of the laidback 70s.
Paul Smith offered two colour palettes, one where prints were bright and colourful and at times hallucinogenic, and then the other included less striking shades, more subtle and warm.
The fit of the garments were again a representation of the era Paul Smith had created. Blazers were very casual, trousers were baggy and free, sweatshirts were worn loose and even the models were quite relaxed whilst walking.
There were a variety of prints on show, some expected, some not so much. Plant prints, cacti, ladybugs and leaves were included on shirts, trousers and shorts. More bizarre prints came in the form of a number of different banana designs and an eerie hand drawing.
Aside from the bold prints of the 70s, Paul Smith included a number of trademark striped garments, as well as some interesting jumpers embellished with leather fringing on the collar.
Other highlights from the show were silk shorts, casual blazers and large bomber jackets. Eyewear was in the form of tinted sunglasses: blue, red, yellow and black. Footwear was kept simple, using canvas flats with the occasional embroidered pattern.
