Paul Smith presented a beautiful collection for SS12, which I would summarise as ‘simply chic’. The elegantly clean-cut designs were enhanced by the use of pure block colours. My favourite pieces were the sunshine yellow skirt and long line blazers. But the real stand outs were the shoes – yes I have a slight addiction to shoes, so I can say with some authority that these were beauties. Loved the cut out loafers and tassel detailing. Nice to see some tropical brights over espadrilles too.
