Paul Smith Ladieswear 2008 Clothing

Paul Smith Ladieswear 2008 Clothing Paul Smith showed his Womens Collection for Autumn / Winter 2008 at The Ballroom, Claridges, London.

1950’s Couture was the major theme to the show with flattering silhouettes, fitted pencil coats, cinched-in waists and cropped jackets all evident.

Prints are inspired by bold Fifties imagery in vivid colours, a quirky people print and wide stripe are both strong and reminiscent of the era.

Fabrics are all about glamour, femininity and elegance. Silks come in taffetas, moire and organza in order to carry the structured dresses and enhance the hourglass silhouette. Whilst heavy couture coating, milano jersey and boucles add volume to full skirts and coats.

Paul Smith Clothing x Burton Snowboards Following on from the success of their AW05 collaboration, Paul Smith Jeans and Burton Snowboards have joined forces once again for an exciting new design project. Traditional formal clothing designed by Paul Smith will be seen on the mountains for the first time, using Burton’s innovative fabric technology and construction techniques.

As part of Burton’s Mark XIII collection a limited edition classic single-breasted hacking jacket in traditional English check sits alongside a limited edition, dark grey cavalry twill double-breasted trench coat and skinny-fit trousers. These traditional pieces are functional on the mountain and on the street.

“I have such an admiration for Burton Snowboards that when I was asked to collaborate with them the obvious route was “true sportswear”. For this second project I have taken tailored clothing and given it all the special features expected from me and Burton; unique hidden lining details, individual buttons, and Burton’s cutting edge technology; fully taped heat-welded seams and high performance waterproofing” Paul Smith 2007
