Paul Smith is a global phenomenon! However, it’s mind-boggling to know that Paul Smith’s introduction to fashion was completely accidental. Within more than 20 years of his introduction to fashion Paul Smith had established himself as the pre-eminent British designer. Over a span of 10 days, globe-trotting Paul Smith has opened three new stores in the month of November – one on Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, second on Greene Street in New York’s SoHo, and the third on Moscow’s Red Square. The difference between the stores means contrasting the square, bubble-gum pink Paul Smith building on Melrose Avenue, with the British flagship Westbourne House, which is a graceful white stucco mansion in London’s Notting Hill.
