Inspired by an Orientalist painting exhibition he saw at London’s Tate Britain gallery in the summer, Paul Smith put his London girl in a Moorish mood for spring. That translated into pantsuits with drapy harem pants that had tapered ankles, some with pink-and-black checked silk scarves knotted around the waist. There were sun-bleached prints aplenty for Smith’s desert flowers, as in a pink-rose-patterned chiffon caftan with intricate lace panels at the neck. An A-line dress also had a washed-out gingham motif in a patchwork of yellow, red and blue.
