One of the most prolific and sought after British designer for men’s wear is Sir Paul Smith who celebrates his sixty-sixth birthday today.
He tells Vogue.co.uk, “As a special birthday treat, I am having an early supper with my wife’s grandchildren which I am really looking forward to. I’m not a big fan of my birthday, so I never have a party or anything big so going for a nice dinner is just the way I like to spend it.”
His use of vibrant hues and multi-coloured pin-stripes are his trademark and he retails twelve collections which include Paul Smith, Paul Smith Women, PS by Paul Smith, Paul Smith Jeans, Paul Smith London, R.Newbold (Japan only), Paul Smith Accessories, Paul Smith Shoes, Paul Smith Fragrance, Paul Smith Watches, Paul Smith Pens and Paul Smith Furniture. Whew!
Here’s wishing the maverick designer a very happy birthday from Team MissMalini.
