Ahead of the menswear season, kicking off with London Collections: Men, we interviewed legendary designer Sir Paul Smith. The British designer, and national treasure, is renowned for his quirky take on classic English clothing, so it's very apt that he'll be showing his British Collection on the final day of LCM, Tuesday 18 June.
Sir Paul spoke to Lou Stoppard about how his brand has achieved fashion longevity, why he went against the retail grain, and how a serious childhood accident was instrumental in his decision to become a designer. Edited footage of the interview is now live, ready to get you in the mood for the menswear season.
In other Paul Smith news, The Design Museum will be honouring the brand with a new exhibition called 'Hello My Name is Paul Smith' that will run from 20 November 2013 - 2 March 2014.
