Paul Smith 531 for Mr Porter

Paul Smith teams with Mr Porter to launch the latest incarnation of the 531 cycling collection.

Bringing together Paul Smith's passion for cycling and the latest developments in technical fabrications, the 11 piece collection features lightweight jackets, merino jerseys and an all-black racing bike designed for city cycling.

Named after the famous Reynolds lightweight bike tubing used by Tour de France champions, Paul Smith 531 refers to the ratio of manganese (5), molybdenum (3) and carbon (1) in the steel alloy. A limited edition bicycle, built in collaboration with Mercian Cycles, a British bespoke bicycle retailer, forms the centrepiece of Paul Smith 531. To mark the latest release of the collection, Paul Smith paid a visit to the Mercian workshop to talk about his love of cycling. Watch the film here.
