Where: The Claridges Hotel Ballroom, London W1
Florals...for Spring? Groundbreaking...said Meryl Streep's character in "The Devil Wears Prada".
Paul Smith however is doing florals for fall, which is refreshing, and yet so Paul Smith. Today's Autumn/Winter 201o show featured light fabrics, bouncy skirts, pastels, florals and some very perky winter riding gear. I might have said he's counting on global warming, if I didn't see how positive and bubbly Smith is in person, which pretty much explains it all. Beautiful 50's style dresses draped with chiffon, tomato red raincoats, black latex numbers and sheer PVC completed this seasons show.
Paul Smith AW10 Trend: Florals, pastels, strong reds, latex, defined waist and sheer fabrics.
