Paul Smith Junior AW12 Paul Smith Junior is a charming collection for boys and girls aged from birth to 16 years. Staying true to Paul Smith’s design vision and unique style, catwalk-inspired shapes from the men’s and women’s collections have been redesigned for children with a fun and lighthearted approach. This winter, Paul Smith Junior sets off in search of adventure with a free-spirited collection that combines urban and country charm with colourful layers and quirky, graphic prints matched alongside traditional heritage tweeds and soft flannels. For boys, layering is key; looks include smart suits worn over signature stripes and vintage Union Jack prints or electric blue skinny jeans teamed with bright knitted cardigans for a casual alternative. Outwear embraces warm, cosy textures; boys are zipped up in wool checked coats, worn with cargo pants and accessorised with furry hats and printed backpacks. The Junior girl enjoys dressing up in tactile, fluid textures; satins and velvets sit alongside sparkly flannels and pleated, voluminous tulles. She wears a jacquard cardigan over a bright frilly blouse and embroidered skirt. Pretty prints including butterflies and faded florals are highlighted with pop brights and vivid detailing.
