Paul Smith

The look:

Smith’s 1980s immersed collection traded the designer’s trademark wit for an elegant and commercial handwriting with an older consumer in mind. Slouchy Fair Isle jumper dresses injected a vibrant mix of colour into a largely autumnal palette of woodland tones. Elsewhere, a raglan peephole sleeved coat in lipstick pink , daffodil yellow knit and pencil skirt and sea green swishy skirt punctuated the parade of military inspired knits, skirts and trouser suits.

Key pieces:

Skirts appeared in pleated full-shaped styles cut above the knee alongside trench coat-detailed looks. A focus on waistlines found regimental belts accentuating waists on cowl-necked tweed coats through to Fair Isle cardies. Boucle (grave accent on e) jackets with patch pockets and exaggerated epaulette shoulders underlined the 1980s backdrop.
