Crazy about stripes

Normally a man with a bright stripy shirt wouldn't send my heart flying (sorry! stylish men make me feel not so stylish in comparison!), but this man does! I love Paul Smith's iconic stripes, and have only just discovered he designs a line of Fine China too! How great does the stripes look against the simple white and the luxury gold (22 carat gold)! I am saving up my pennies now!

Just out of curiosity, how many of our dear overseas readers have heard of Paul Smith? I know he's definitely an icon in Britain, up there with Vivienne Westwood I would say, not sure if this extends to the rest of the world?

Paul Smith is well known in Australia for mensware but I didn't know about the China! Tracey x

My husband (and I too) just adore Paul Smith---he's quite popular here in the states, or at least in big cities like New York or San Francisco. The huz adores his striped Paul Smith socks (he'd BETTER at $30 per pair) and even wore them on our wedding day :)

Paul Smith also does AMAZING rugs for the rug company, including some in a swirling interpretation of his classic stripe. you've got to check out out!

I knew him, but I didn't know about his fine china! Or perhaps I knew the china (it looks familiar,) but didn't realize it was his! Either way- I love the stripes with the white and gold, and I'd love to drink my coffee or tea out of those cups!
