Paul Smith Autumn/Winter 2011

I have always been an admirere of British designer Paul Smith. I had a few of his pieces as I was growing up an a favourite was a beautiful vibrant slip dress that had a print of bunny rabbits on it, I loved it . Always taking note of his collections each season, his talent and style  is one that I applaud.
 This season, Paul Smith’s modern masculine aesthetic continues with a relaxed, laid-back collection for women. A contemporary blend of tailored English attitude and effortless Parisian chic gives an understated androgynous silhouette.
Matt textures with traditional cloths thrown with slouchy cardigans and oversize knits, a look that looks comfortable an effortless. Faux fur trims, flashes of sheer silk add a touch of femininity.  
Neutral earthly tones are highlighted by punchy block colours.
Are you loving this look an ready to challenge it for Autumn/ Winter? x
