Paul Smith Shoes AW12 The men’s autumn/winter 12 shoe collection continues to move away from the vintage look. Treatments and designs are more authentic, with hand finishing allowing the leather to appear slightly pre-worn and cherished adding depth of character and individuality to the shoes. The men’s collection features cutting edge styles alongside re worked classics. Techniques in leather polishing give subtle, rich deep colours the opportunity to shine. Contrast stitching, brush off leathers, patents and the use of contrast materials on the uppers are highlights throughout this strong, directional seasonal collection. The “evening / tuxedo” theme flows through the men’s collection into P.S. with patent loafers and lace up styles working impeccably with the London Line evening looks. The Paul Smith Jeans collection is full of interesting new styles. From sneakers influenced by cycling to moccasins to sneaker/hiking boot combinations the collection is concise and individual.
