The silhouettes were widely varied and there were quite a few different pants on the Paul Smith spring/summer 2017 runway and they were all very different. There were also several different prints featured, from checks that bring up thoughts of a sunny picnic outside to the many different floral patterns and stripes.

Even more interesting is the combination of patterns that appear together, seemingly clashing and matching just enough in either direction to make the looks interesting and united.

As a brand, Paul Smith has a global reach, inspiring people all over the world with his designs and furthering their own wardrobe with his work. The use of color in the collection is just awe-inspiring, as each color is united in the intent to present consumers with a springtime and summer worthy aesthetic.

The many different horticultural touches and prints were welcomed in their variety, showing so many that people could confidently choose a few without taking a huge portion of the Paul Smith spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection.

The silhouettes were enhanced with great espadrilles and sandals for a relaxed and refreshing look. This collection has vests, dresses, jumpsuits, skirt sets, culottes, and pantsuits. Pinks and oranges worked beautifully well with white, greens and blues.

One of the dresses lengthens the form with vertical lines on a floating silhouette in orange, blue and pink, another form floating dress featured details like petals on the collar, a layered hem and floating bell-wrist sleeves. The bags were beautifully well done and perfectly coordinated for many seasons, as very few well-designed bags can be limited to a single season.
