Back again with LC:M. Paul Smith in the spotlight this time, tailoring the theme of the day with the launch of the British Collection for Spring Sumer 2014. Taking over the Hauser & Wirth gallery on where else but Savile Row, the beautiful and imposing installation from Subodh Gupta – ‘What does the vessel contain, that the river does not’ played backdrop for suits, suits and more suits. Smith Explains “The British Collection, a section within the London line, uses cloth made by a Yorkshire mill established in 1910 called ‘Clissold.’ At Clissold they’re able to weave bespoke fabrics for Paul Smith designed uniquely in house with a versatility that many other mills don’t have the ability to do.” Traditional production techniques are paired with modern touches, union jack herringbone, graduated shades across lapels all accompanied by footwear: buckle-ups, monk straps, brogues, as well as holdalls and slim ties. Paul Smith himself on hand to talk us through the collections, take a closer look at all that fine detail in our gallery.
