Paul Smith Wallet – Art or Not?

Ever since Paul Smith released his “naked lady” collection there has been a cacophony of indignation condemning the globally recognized designer for degrading the fairer sex. So what’s the deal? Here’s the chatter on the Kitmeout forum, Take a butchers.

The story goes, Archie Dickens painted it (a 94 year old from Kent, England) & the model is known as Christine (that’s all he said). Suppose the answer is to produce a similar collection showing a geezer or two striped down to the bare bone…

Paul Smith | Tokyo Fashion Week Show

We’ve always been smithie fans here at Kitmeout. The geezer has an uncanny knack of crossing the divide whether generational or cultural. So keeping up to speed with the chap we’ve grabbed some latest news — worth a butchers for sure:

Smithie’s just come back from a 10 day trip to Japan where he’s been doing many things; showing his new collections, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of one of his shops, taking photographs for an Italian Magazine of a Japanese stylists apartment, and the grand finale was holding his first ever fashion show in Japan and his first ever show including men and women’s. The show was held on the invitation of the Tokyo Fashion Week and his was the opening show.

Hat’s off to Smithie!

Sir Paul Smith

Sir Paul SmithSir Paul Smith, says:

One of the biggest mistakes men make is wearing T-shirts. I understand why you’d want to wear them, especially if you’re a single man. There’s no ironing. But most guys need to have a collar around their neck for height.
If you’re in doubt about how to wear your hair, get a non-haircut: a relatively short, nondescript one. If you try for stylish hair, you can make horrible mistakes.
Women should always be entertained. My wife hates it when men at a dinner party lean in front of her or behind her and have a conversation as if she doesn’t exist.
If you’re going to a formal event, you have to dress correctly. But if you get there and realize people aren’t wearing bow ties, you can put yours in your pocket.
On a young guy, two days of not shaving looks very cool. But as you get older, it looks like you’re trying too hard, especially when you’re going gray. A proper beard is fine.
In London, we’re not so passionate about how we look, as opposed to the Italians, who are very self-conscious. We’re not stylish dressers, but we’re good on ideas and on freethinking.
You can learn from people who dress in an interesting way, like Daniel Day-Lewis. You can see him on his motorbike in jeans, a checked shirt, and a leather jacket. And other times he’ll have on a custom-made Scottish-plaid suit.
Generally speaking, I wear a suit every day, because my suits are custom-made. They are comfortable. They move with me.
I don’t have a BlackBerry. I carry a notepad and a pencil—and I don’t use a mobile. I’ve reluctantly moved to a digital camera, but only because they make them so nice and small now that they don’t spoil the line of your suit.
I’m very happy if a man smells like himself. But if he does wear a scent, it shouldn’t be too attention seeking. The people on the other side of the office shouldn’t be able to smell you.
