PS Paul Smith AW12 PS by Paul Smith has a focus on contemporary styles and fabrics with strong, modern and detailed tailoring being central to the collection. A narrower silhouette is seen, with shoulder lines brought in and sleeves slimmed. An exclusive spot lining graces suit jackets and trim details. The colour palette is dark; tones of purple, green, blue and damson feature alongside black, navy and grey, punctuated with tones of jade, indigo and red with subtle neon highlights. Blurred photographic prints are seen in shirting, alongside over-dyed embroidery and simplified checks and stripes.
