Paul Smith to launch Manchester store
Paul Smith is to open a new store on Manchester’s New Cathedral Street.
The shop will offer the latest Paul Smith collections for men and women as well as a seasonal stock of runway ready-to-wear fashion and accessories.
The colourful façade in pink, red and green references the work of one of Smith’s favourite artists, Luis Barragán. Inside, the shop is filled with the signature architectural features and the individual items of furniture that make each Paul Smith shop unique.
The 140 square metre one level space also features a three metre square cube that has been inlaid into the floor to represent the same dimensions as Smith's first shop in Nottingham.
Smith said: “I’ve had a close relationship with Manchester and the surrounding area since the beginning of my career. I’d spend a lot of time driving from Nottingham to visit the factories in the city that I was using to make early Paul Smith shirts - some of the first pieces I ever designed.”
A signature feature of all Paul Smith shops, the store also includes an art wall showcasing a series of eclectic imagery and photographs taken by Smith with some available for sale.
The new shop will open this autumn.
