PAUL SMITH x Stan Ray Capsule Collektion

Stemming from Paul’s long-time appreciation of heritage workwear, the partnership allows both brand’s distinct personalities to shine. Combining Stan Ray’s workwear credentials with PS Paul Smith Happy’s light-hearted, everyday spirit, the 10-piece capsule represents a fresh, versatile and truly modern interpretation of street and casualwear.

Founded in 1972 in Texas, the quintessentially US brand Stan Ray has decades of experience crafting hard-wearing, utilitarian clothing, governed by the motto “designed for wear and movement, with minimum fuss and maximum practicality”.

PS Paul Smith Happy typifies Paul Smith’s uniquely optimistic character boasting bold colour schemes, comfortable fabrics and easy-to-wear separates.

Comprising ready to wear and accessories, namely T-shirts, jackets, cargo trousers, shorts and tote bags, the collaboration collection marries utilitarian design with pops of colour and print.

A patchwork theme is present throughout the collection with iconic Stan Ray pieces – like the brand’s Painter’s Pant, Shop Jacket and Fatigue Shorts – available in two-tone and camouflage colourways.

Made from typically robust fabric choices, including cotton drill, ripstop and military-inspired sateen and crafted using durable chain-stitching, the pieces also boast an array of practical details, including snap fastenings, patch and flap pockets and hammer loops.

Co-branded colourful jersey T-shirts, featuring a mash-up of the brands’ respective logos, provide a graphic element, while accessories like tote bags round out the collection.
