Paul Smith celebrates the Year of the Rat with a capsule collection of special edition products for men and women.
With 2020 marking the Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac, Paul Smith steps into the spirit of the occasion by designing a series of celebratory pieces that offer different takes on the rat motif.
The focus this year is on small leather goods, as classic black leather cardholders and wallets feature a cartoonish rat icon embossed in gold. The same rat icon is also found as a repeating print on cotton formal shirts for men and women.
Presenting a different take on the rat motif, a painterly print appears on silk scarves and pocket squares. Then, in the PS Paul Smith collection, a graphic surfing rat features on casual T-shirts and hoodies.
Finally, to further celebrate this auspicious time of year, Paul Smith has created exclusive Lunar New Year red envelopes with a gold rat icon, to be shared with friends and family. These red envelopes are available from selected Paul Smith shops, including Paul Smith at Mailbox.
