Paul Smith Menswear Spring Summer 2015 London

Alongside Margaret Howell and Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith was one of the first labels to put modern British menswear on the international map. And so, coming off the back of a major career retrospective at the Design Museum, it was good to see him dip a (literal) toe into the waters of London Collections: Men.

It WAS just a toe, at this point: a long plinth at the Hauser & Wirth gallery on Savile Row, surrounded by Phyllida Barlow drawings, along which Smith had lined up 40 four-hole Oxford shoes - half mens, half womens - in his-and-her pairs that gradually flushed through a range of dusty summer pastels; rust, coral, rose, sand, mustard, lemon, lilac, cornflower, aubergine. The colour carried throughout: each shoe had laces, soles, and even tiny stitch detailing dyed to match. As a whole, it was refreshingly straightforward, and utterly true to Smith's classics-with-a-twist language: a simple story, cleanly and simply told.
