Sir Paul Smith is a fashion designer. Born in Nottinghamshire in 1946, he left school at age 16 before opening up his first shop in 1970. 

In 1976, Smith showed his first men’s collection in Paris. Today his brand is comprised of 15 different collections covering menswear, womenswear, children’s clothing, accessories, fragrance and home decor. His design trademark is a quirky take on British classics.

Smith was knighted in 2000. A monograph on the designer, You Can Find Inspiration in Everything (*And If You Can't, Look Again!), was published by Violette Editions in 2010.
