Here is our write up of the Paul Smith AW13/14 Show which can be found in our LFW report


What a great man - an icon on Floral Street, Covent Garden
who opened his first shop in 1970.
We are loving this collection which is reminding us of those
crazy clothes that Bowie and Jagger
wore in their video Dancing in the Street
with Jagger in his bright green shirt and ultramarine trousers
and yellow shoes and Bowie in his paint splattered
jump suit and pale yellow duster raincoat.
This song makes us happy,
and these colours in Paul Smith's AW13/14 collection do too.
As Paul says to Vogue:
 "I never had any formal training, so I play with colour and texture, 
because I can't do those wild big shapes. 
I'm an everyday boy, always have been. 
And it's so dour out there at the moment 
- colour makes us happy."  I should say. 
The colours are Fuchsia, Scarlett, Violet, Ultramarine, 
Verdigris mixed with neutrals Rust, black, chocolate, grey and cream. 
There are sweaters, peg front trousers, silk shirts, 
long duster coats, shorts jumpsuits, shift dresses 
and an abstract take on the Union Jack in 
bright blue and red on skinny trousers, 
dresses, shirts and linings of long coats.
We love the photographic building prints on metallic silks in aqua and silver,
 the purple and black organza and chiffon shirts, 
and the gorgeous strapless silver short ruched and folded dress.
It was definitely more edgy and sexy than I would normally expect from Sir Paul
 Paul Smith AW13/14 looks great - more rock, more Studio 54. 

At the Show at Tate Britain they played
Bowie's Let's Dance:
Another awesome British Icon
