Paul Smith’s Spring/Summer 2014 women’s collection is alive with optimistic colour and soft feminine interpretations of tailored classics.
The British fashion designer drew on the outline of traditional and conventional men’s garments as the structural focus of the collection, while femininity was injected through the use of soft and delicate fabrics.
Sensuality and elegance are key in the collection and seen through the relaxed shoulders, gently cinched waists and loose necklines. Two focal shapes define the predominant tailoring story; a single button jacket is short in the body with finely accentuated lapels that extend onto the shoulder seam, while a second, longer and less structured jacket, delivers a graceful movement and fluidity to looks. The trousers allude to a 1970s nostalgia revealing high-wasted pleats and a voluminous leg.
A familiar and vibrant colour palette, symbolic of Smith’s spring/summer collections, delivers a freshness and positivity for the summer season.
