Paul Smith Accessories AW12 The autumn / winter 12 Accessories collection sees the introduction of new bag shapes and styles sitting alongside the more classic pieces. Parachute Leather: A group of super soft, luxurious leather bags are seen within the accessories show collection this season. Baby calf leather is combined with calf vachetta for a masculine edge and hardware is kept minimal, stud fastening details take inspiration from 1940’s parachute bags. Referencing the ‘classic with a twist’ heritage of Paul Smith, the dark slouchy shapes feature a contrasting fluorescent lime top handle and an orange interior zip pocket. The collection features three shapes; oversized holdall, slim tote and slim backpack. Building upon last season’s styles, the autumn / winter 12 collection features four shapes; a tote, folio, holdall and shoulder bag. Alongside the classic colours of black and chocolate, a teal colour is introduced.
