The new Spring-Summer 2018 collection from Paul Smith Jr is inspired by the Notting Hill Carnival, whose very essence is music. Get your guitars out! The jerseys and fleeces are illustrated with instruments, speakers, and mixing tables. Musical touches are found in the entire collection with the shapes of musical notes or on buttonholes shaped like vinyl discs. In junior girls, the skirts are are enhanced by pleated stripes for a classy twirl on the dance floor.
This musical ambiance is mixed with a colorful botanical world. A festive spirit is seized with jungle creatures in the baby boy’s line. Other models are adorned with seventies illustrations that bring back memories of the opening year of the first Paul Smith boutique. The collection also creates a surprise with interactive textile innovations: a special magnifier reveals a hidden image on the textile. Reflective details are eye-catching on t-shirts and jeans. Other prints appear after being exposed to water or light.
