Paul Smith at LFW

Monday, 27 September 2010

As it's fashion week time, I'm going to focus on that in the next few days. Today it's all about the Paul Smith fashion show in London last week. He returned to what made him famous - menswear for women and it was great! The designer himself described his collection as looking "like you borrowed your boyfriend's shirt, your boyfriend's jacket, your boyfriend's trousers". 

The colour palette is really beautiful, mixing tones of orange, purple and grey for the most part. The choice of styling for the girls was a mohawk, to set them on the same page with the menswear-inspired looks. Polka dots and the men's shoes seem to be a recurring detail that unifies the entire collection. As interesting details I would cite the polka dot cuffs on a pair of pants, the neon men's shoes, the juxtaposition of belts and of course and of course the cardigan wore the other way around. And guess what, one of the girls in the show is a Romanian model, Diana Moldovan. She's the one wearing the stunning purple polka dot dress and the neon shoes.
