Sept. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Paul Smith is known his traditional British style with contemporary edge; his signature multi-colored stripes are famous all over the world.

Paul Smith's designs are reflected on his own personality. The multi-colored pinstripe trademark has branded his work. International fame touched the designer when his collections which were mainly British in taste were openly accepted in Japan. Smith was knighted as menswear icon after nearly three decade of work by Queen Elizabeth II in the year 2001. He is credited with introducing a number of trends in the fashion world. The revival of boxer shorts and filofax are his works of effort. The success he has met with comes from the fact that he has played his dual role both as a designer and a retailer with perfection.

Today there are 12 different collections; Paul Smith, Paul Smith Women, PS by Paul Smith, Paul Smith Jeans, Paul Smith London, R.Newbold (Japan only), Paul Smith Accessories, Paul Smith Shoes, Paul Smith Fragrance, Paul Smith Watches, Paul Smith Pens and Paul Smith furniture and ‘things’; Paul Smith rugs, china, spectacles and fragrance are made under license. Designed in Nottingham and London, the Paul Smith collections are primarily produced in England and Italy while the fabrics used are mainly of Italian, French and British origin. In 2002 Paul Smith collaborated with Cappellini to create the Mondo collection of furniture inspired by observation and travel. In 2003 Paul designed an upholstery textile in partnership with Maharam, called ‘Bespoke’, which was inspired by classic pinstripe suiting.

Paul Smith is global - the collection is wholesaled to thirty five countries and has fourteen shops in England. Paul Smith shops are found in London, Nottingham, Paris, Milan, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, the Philippines, Korea, Kuwait, U.A.E. – and over two hundred throughout Japan.
