Mixing textural fabrics, colour and print, the spring/summer 13 Paul collection sees a dreamy summer mix of collaged florals, soft layered wardrobe essentials and signature Paul Smith statement pieces.

Reminiscent of lazy, hazy summer days, floral prints and pops of vibrant colour combine to form a layered look that's eye-catching and cross seasonal.
 
In clashing colour combinations and graphical modern prints, collaging is central to the collection. With Paul being a personal fan of all things bright and blossoming, botanical prints boldly mix digitally enhanced flowers with delicate hand drawings.
 
The theme of sharp contrasts continues as contemporary clashes with tradition with light chambray denim given an unexpected Paul Smith twist with a single colour collage print. Featured on a boyfriend shirt, an unstructured jacket and casual trousers, these signature pieces can be offset with more simple summer staples and accessories.
 
The palette popped with colour that dominated the women's spring/summer 13 catwalk collection is a given a youthful and more causal twist in the Paul by Paul Smith collection. Rich windsor blue and primrose yellow shine bright alongside more monochrome printed pieces and ambient summer neutrals of barley and ivory are punctuated with blossom pink and regent green in beach-ready checkered shorts and cocktail party perfect printed mini-skirts.
 
True to the tradition of Paul by Paul Smith collections, smart meets casual in pieces that can comfortably see you through morning, noon and night. Two-tone grey marl sweatpants are smartened with a simple white shirt and topped off with the statement hazy botanical print jacket. In polka dotted denim, chunky cable knits and colour blocked trousers, Paul by Paul Smith has got your bag packed with the perfect weekend wardrobe.
