Paul Smith's A/W15 collection showed brilliantly masculine silhouettes ("I've always been in love with a more androgynous look on a girl," explained Paul), with a distinctly minimal aesthetic for a brand that often favours a print.
"This time, I didn't have one particular influence... There are hints of aspects of the Bauhaus but really it's just clothes for a modern girl," Paul told AnOther Magazine. "The collection has less prints and a more muted palette than usual – but with tailoring featuring heavily, the fabrics themselves are very important. That's often hard to see on a catwalk or even on a video, but up close you'll see we've used a lot of thick wools in coats and in knitwear, lot's of what I call 'beefy' fabrics. There's some print but it's more subtle."
