Paul Smith Black Label is one of the 14 different collections under the Paul Smith brand. This British label began life in the city of Nottingham with the designer of the same name who started his design career during night classes. Streamlined silhouettes, elegant tailoring and contemporary details have come to define this line from Paul Smith, which has a distinctly vintage aesthetic that has been inspired by the glamour of the 50s and 60s. The range of dresses from Paul Smith Black Label incorporates the shapes of the period from which the line takes its inspiration, with shift styles and tunics featuring frequently. There is also plentiful use of print, from florals through to geometric styles and tiny checks.
