British fashion designer Paul Smith is making nerdy cool again with his various optical styles from the 2009 Paul Smith Spectacles Collection. The collection is described as “edgy and sophisticated.” Paul Smith’s Optical Collection is influenced by and reflects the style of the Beatnik literary movement. This season’s Sun Collection also carries the same quirky style—influenced by the musicians and artists of the 70’s. Paul Smith sunglasses feature vibrant colors, artistic texturing and retro elements of design.
Paul Smith shops are found major cities throughout the world such as London, Nottingham, Paris, Milan, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan–- and he also has over two hundred shops throughout Japan. Paul Smith Online carries the same in-store options and occasionally an even better selection of high-fashion items.
