Few people could claim to have had the impact on British fashion culture as Sir Paul Smith.
Born in 1947, his formative years were spent indulging in his first love - cycling. Unfortunately, any plans to build a life around this passion were scuppered following an accident which resulted in 6 months in hospital. Instead, his desire to make his mark was redirected into clothing. His early work years were spent in a clothing warehouse at a time when manufacturing was still booming in the UK.
A serious self-starter, Paul Smith learned the art of tailoring, something which naturally led to him opening the first Paul Smith shop in his hometown of Nottingham, in 1970. It doesn't take a genius to work out that makes 50 years in fashion.
As the world faces uncertain and ever-changing times, the reassuring sight of that Paul Smith signature logo is one to rely on. You don't exist for half a century for nothing.
