SEEN at the catwalk for LFW16: Paul Smith SS17

Paul Smith presented his SS17 optimistic collection bursting with flowers, garlands, and daisy chains at the London Fashion Week on Sunday, 18th September, in an industrial outpost in London’s King’s Cross decorated with bunches of wild flowers.

Florals are the archetypical feature of Paul Smith’s designs. In this SS17 collection, he plays with different methods of printing and use of jacquard to make them more interesting, appearing hand-drawn or woven, aside printed.

Paul Smith’s new artisanal prints and embroideries decorated loose silhouettes that allow the shape of the body to define the fall of lines. The result is a very feminine and optimistic collection in radiant colours, inspired by Hilma Af Klint’s works exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery earlier this year.
