For the PS by Paul Smith spring/summer 13 collection muted pastels are punctuated with pops of bright colour, textural knitwear collides with high-twist cotton trousers and casual tailoring sits aside slim and sharp shirting.

Softening the silhouette, warming us up for the months ahead, this season's PS man eases from week to weekend in a wardrobe that mixes contemporary suits and shirts with textural knitwear and lightweight summer jackets.
Innovative and eye-catching prints include inverted X-ray patterns on jackets and high saturation, sunlight florals on shirts. Sweaters are lined with intarsia and breton stripes and coral colour polo shirts have contrast collars and cuffs.
There's a fresh approach in fabric as contemporary cuts in shirting are complimented by unwashed cotton, whilst a sporty edge is injected in the texture of cotton pique, contrasting with more casual outerwear. Throughout the collection interest is pricked in buttons and stitching, as ever Paul Smith is distinguished in the details.
Throughout, the palette focuses on soft pastels and neutrals clash with strong brights. Pale blues and white are contrasted with red in this casual check jacket, muted shades meet burnt orange in this striped jumper and pink floral proves the highlight in this print shirt.
