Paul Smith largely adheres to the ages-old tradition of proper British tailoring, but he still loves thumbing his nose at it once in a while. With Paul Smith Jeans, the London-based designer offers utilitarian outerwear, distressed denims, nylon backpacks and canvas plimsolls for men and women with carefree, active lifestyles. Jeans come in a variety of fits, from slim to drainpipe; corduroys feature embossed buttons and leatherette detailing. Since launching his signature label in Paris in 1976, Smith has established himself as one of England's most prominent designers – creating eyewear and furniture in addition to apparel. Jude Law and David Bowie are just two of Smith's stylish celebrity fans.
