Paul Smith

Paul Smith bags, accessories and ready-to-wear have become synonymous of the classic English style and creativity of the owner Paul. As a teenager in the late '50s, Paul becomes the buyer for a department store where he was already working, after a meeting that changed his life, with a group of friends who attended the College of Arts in Nottingham, and after taking lessons of masculine tailoring. In 1969 he opened a shop, where in addition to fashion, he used to sold items found during his travels: agendas from Greece, large posters taken in Paris: the vision of the world according to Paul Smith begins to take shape. In 1976 he made his debut in Paris in 1979 with the man collection, and gets to Covent Garden with his shop. "You can find inspiration in everything" says is his book and that is how come the love for prints of British objects os stripes (the Mini Cooper, The English Barber Shop).
