Paul Smith Men's RTW Spring 2015

Potted plants inspired the designer's spring collection — and were dotted across the mosaic floor of the circular Bourse de Commerce.

Gardening is a national sport in Britain, and Paul Smith is a quintessentially British designer, so it should come as no surprise that potted plants inspired his spring collection — and were dotted across the mosaic floor of the circular Bourse de Commerce.

But this was no Chelsea Flower Show. Instead, Smith turned his collection into an ode to stoner culture, with patterns incorporating cannabis leaves and psychedelic imagery, including clowns with cactus hats and a graphic banana peel motif (a post-munchies remnant, perhaps?).

His color palette was gorgeous, with a gamut of purple and blue shades that played out particularly well on the satiny fabrics used for zippered jogging pants and suits with the ease of pajamas. Rainbow color gradations were cloudy on a dip-dyed T-shirt, or crisply graphic as horizontal stripes on a fine-knit sweater.

Pot-patterned pants and shorts had a retro tropical flair, but were strictly “not safe for work.”
