British designer Sir Paul Smith made his first trips from Nottingham to London as a teenager in the 1960s, and tapped into the unbridled creativity and optimism he experienced for his new collection, which closed Paris Men’s Fashion Week for spring/summer 2017.

Slim-cut, lean tailoring, reminiscent of the 1960s, was updated with its lightweight construction and highly breathable Merino wool fibres, making it relevant for today’s younger wearer. The designer’s message of peace and positivity, meanwhile, was evidenced in the bright colour palette of yellow, green, red and stripes, which spilled onto the runway itself, and was shown in tartan wool knitwear and v-neck collegiate-style wool sweaters.
