2016 Power Pieces: Paul Smith Travel Suit.
In a true Sir Paul Smith style, the designer unveiled during London Collections: Men Spring Summer 2016 a tailoring innovation – a travel suit with an extraordinary ease of wear. The unique characteristics were demonstrated by Olympic medal- winning gymnast, Max Whitlock and a troop from the National Centre of Circus Arts. In Paul Smith’s Travel Suit you can make handstands, backflips, and even more. A versatile and super-practical piece of tailoring, the Italian- constructed suit uses quick recover cloth, crease-resistant pure wool yarn.
“The definition of great design is that it should deliver a perfect combination of form and function,” explained Paul Smith fashion house.
“At Paul Smith we design beautiful things to be worn and enjoyed. We believe that clothes should not only look good, but should also be fit for purpose. That is why we have created a new suit, tailored to travel in – soft and versatile, it is characterised by a contemporary, neat fit. Harnessing the natural qualities of 100% wool, the new Paul Smith travel suit is designed to move with you. The cloth’s stretch and crease-recovery properties mean that whatever your journey, you’ll always look well turned out.”
Paul Smith’s Suit To Travel In is available for men and women in black, navy, and grey (£730.00). The men’s suit is available in 3 fits: Slim, Soho and Mayfair. The suit is sold complete or as separate items.
