Paul Smith AW16 Photo Essay

Sir Paul Smith brought joy to the last day of Paris men’s fashion week with loud music and colourful suits

Though there were a few more shows after Paul Smith on the final day of Paris men’s fashion week, this was the last one of the season for PORT’s fashion team. And what a way to finish the AW16 collections. The British designer has a way with words but, more than anything, he has a way with people – and his clothes show that.

As per usual, it was an eclectic mix of modern tailoring and everyday staples, often in loud colours and odd combinations. You can tell this is a man less bothered about convention and more about enjoying life. The music helped too: a potpourri of classic hits that finished with a David Bowie tribute… and a dancing Sir Paul!
