MEN’S BAGSSHOP NOW >
Inspired by his brother's Post Office shirts and the tweeds of the Nottinghamshire country set, Sir Paul (yes, he was knighted in 2000) started out as a menswear designer and his “classic with a twist” tagline has seen him shake up the fashion world for decades. At the end of London Fashion Week in January this year, British rapper Tinie Tempah hosted a dinner party with Paul and British GQ and, of course, he looked dapper in a red Paul Smith suit. For all music lovers Paul Smith has tuned his men’s handbags line with a distinctive print: check out the soft notes of the headphones print crossbody, flight bag and even on the super dandy wallet. For the Fall/Winter 14, Paul Smith celebrated another of his passions, photography, with the 'Mini on Location' print. For the Holdall bag and the Business Folio, the Mini car was photographed with Paul's Bristol against the contrasting brutalist honeycomb structures of St James Street car park in Nottingham and its scratched finish gives the print a weathered look. Check out the wallet with mini car, a retro and hip must have.
