Sitting front row at Paul Smith Fall/Winter 201919.01.2019
British elegance has its place in Paris with Paul Smith, who has brought his men’s and women’s collection together in the French capital for several seasons now. An ambassador of self-assured, irreverent style, and an uncontested master of color, Paul Smith has always remained an exception: providing a very Parisian-British touch. His Fall/Winter 2019 collection, presented at the Élysée Montmartre, was a testament to this self-expression. The feminine and masculine silhouettes dialogued in cuts and colors, like chic couples walking the streets of Paris. Paul Smith’s runway drew personalities to the front row at his fashion show, namely actresses Maisie Williams, Hikari Mori, and Korean singer Henry Lau, plus French figures like Alysson Paradis, Simon Buret, Olivier Coursier (AaRON) and Antoine de Caunes.
