Paul Smith FW15: Pack light

A suit to travel in

Paul Smith FW15: Pack light
Lightweight, crease-resistant and suiting are not usually uttered in the same breath, but Paul Smith coins the phrase for fall/winter 2015 with 'A Suit to Travel In'

Like the title of the collection suggests, the brand's fall suiting was pieced together with the jetset gent in mind, and truly attains the elusive equilibrium of form and function. Constructed with high-twist 100% wool yarn, its lightweight, crease-resistant and water repellent qualities alleviate long-time woes associated with business travel. Keep your cool when the luggages hit the scales during check-in and forget toting a garment bag on board — the Paul Smith suit stays crisp stowed away or worn. 

The innovation first saw light early this year at London Collections: Men, and Olympic athlete Max Whitlock and artists from the National Centre for Circus Arts put the suit to the test with gymnastic routines and stunts during the brand's presentation.

Made in Italy, the tailoring takes form in Paul Smith's Slim, Soho and Mayfair fits and the linings are canvas to their signature vibrant prints. Attire for evening soirées are also covered with 'A Tuxedo to Travel In' — jackets with sateen lapels come in both single-breasted and double-breasted styles. 

The FW15 collection is now available in Paul Smith stores worldwide.
