Check out the latest line of PS by Paul Smith

  • Words: Spindle

Paul Smith’s latest SS17 collection for new line PS, which was launched earlier this year, is inspired by ‘wanderlust and exploration.’ PS by Paul Smith was created as a more youthful second line from the brand, while complementing their first line collection and building on “the same core values of confident colour, unique print and sharp tailoring.” PS aims to update classic designs and create a unique twist on everyday essentials. A series of PS by Paul Smith flagship stores will soon be opening in London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Osaka.

The second season of the line features menswear and womenswear with many iconic elements of Smith’s designs, from precise tailoring to bright colours, but the styling also takes influence from British subcultures such as mod, skinhead, and punk. The collection also features some sportswear motifs, as seen in the outerwear and stripe details. Many everyday items are included, with relaxed jeans and shirts, and the range features summery graphics and tropical prints. A number of items are also embellished with the brand’s new logo, a PS emblem which borrows from post-punk iconography.
