At Paul Smith’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the models grooved and jived down the runway to a medley of Bob Marley tunes. This season’s core colours come from a cool Caribbean based palette, filled with Rasta plaids and a particularly palpable island vibe; spring was to be eclectic and vibrant. The British designer didn’t disappoint this season, however, presenting a lineup of Sixties and Seventies inspired silhouettes that were slim and tailored. Additional offerings included striped sweaters, polo shirts, embroidered jeans and floral printed T-shirts, but you’ll be missing out if you skip over the woven handbags. Hands-down the best feature of the show – and perhaps the best accessories of the season.
