Paul Smith showed sophisticated style in this SS17 collection at London Fashion Week. Patternbank loved his use of bold abstract flowers and a sweet daisy that looked like a polka dot from afar. Another highlight was the sophisticated linear florals with unusual colour combinations inspired by Gustav Klimt.
