PAUL SMITH WOMEN SS17

Embedded in the flowers elemental to the roots of Paul Smith, Spring/Summer 2017 springs from the idea of friendship and the ritualistic use of floral garlands as a means of companionship. The photographic floral prints of the designer’s legacy now appear hand-drawn or woven onto cloth instead, cementing a focus on craftsmanship and creation. Every fragment has come to life by hand, a sentiment expressed most vividly in a crayon-like tulip print on tailoring and dresses.
