A casual take on tailoring came with softly laundered suits in gentle blue and dove grey, chalky pastels and luminescent tones. Then, fiery super-bright casual combos of T-shirt, nylon outerwear and trousers ended a show where colour was a key theme and Michael Jackson’s Thriller echoed across the runway. Even the more dapper options – sheeny grey db and sb options – were worn with silky azure polos that packed that extra punch.
The lightweight parkas were scooter-boy fodder. Soft wool coats, T-shirts with contrast peplum sections and knits with a metallic sheen were gently quirky and commercial. Instead of his usual florals Paul Smith used a botanical print.
