2020 provided a unique moment of reflection for Paul Smith, with the landmark 50th anniversary celebrations followed by the imposed introspection of lockdown. 2021 offers the opportunity to reset and rethink.
The autumn/winter ’21 collection presents a series of Paul Smith classics that have been remixed and reinvented for 2021. Check tailoring, vintage shirts and mohair knits along with paisley, striped and floral prints taken from the Paul Smith Archive feature throughout the collection.
The campaign features a cast of British talent captured by photographer Jack Davison. In the spirit of togetherness and positivity, find out what motivates and inspires them.

“I love music, music is really important in my life, it energises me, it inspires me. I like to feed my curiosity by trying to find music that I don’t necessarily know or I’m not familiar with.”

“As a cyclist, lycra is usually what I’m found in. I guess the texture could be described as silky. It makes me feel very vulnerable and strong. The vulnerability in my silhouette and my strength in the training”

“I find painting is a great escape for most things. I find a good bike ride also helps clear the head!”

“Togetherness means being magnetised to someone or something. Choosing to spend your time on someone, and them choosing to spend their time on you. It’s the fabric of human nature.”
