Paul Smith

Born in 1947, in Nottingham, Paul Smith wanted to become a professional bicycle racer, but an accident prevented him from pursuing this career further. He opened a tiny clothing shop in 1970 and worked hard to establish himself as a unique fashion menswear designer, offering classic British cuts with a twist: grey business suits with colourful floral shirts or lined with striking shades. He introduced his women’s collection in 1993, featuring versatile basics and unique separates that reflect both modern dressing and the needs of every stylish woman – luxury tailoring hand in hand with classical, desirable pieces.
