The Paul Smith Spring/Summer 2015 collection was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week and presented its audience with a range of effortlessly cool pieces. Whether experimenting with the color spectrum or looking to the 80s and 90s for inspiration, the designer revived nostalgia on the runway stage.
Models walked the runway in a wardrobe of fresh casuals that embodied a retro surfer vibe. Color spectrum knits, patterned varsity jackets and color-lensed shades were the collection's most eye-catching pieces and set a youthful tone for summer.
While relaxed suits and chromatic knits reminded one of the 90s, structured sportswear looks were definitive of today's menswear aesthetic. Overall, the Paul Smith Spring/Summer 2015 collection fused nostalgia with today's vision of understated elegance.
