Emirates Man - - STYLE -

It would be eas­ier to point out things that Paul Smith’s sig­na­ture stripes don’t go with – and now you can sit on them as well as wear them. The Bri­tish fash­ion de­signer’s lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion is with tex­tile company Ma­haram and Dan­ish fur­ni­ture firm Carl Hansen & Søn, who make pieces in­spired by leg­endary Dan­ish de­signer Hans J Weg­ner. You prob­a­bly wouldn’t be able to spot a Weg­ner piece if you saw one, but you’ve mostly likely perched your rear on fur­ni­ture in­spired by him. His most fa­mous de­sign is the Pea­cock hair, cre­ated back in 1947, , and it’s a style that’s been im­i­tated by car­pen­ters all over the globe ever since. Carl Hansen & Søn also take their in­spi­ra­tion from Weg­ner’s work, and Paul Smith’s sig­na­ture stripes are a nat­u­ral part­ner for this fur­ni­ture line’s sleek, min­i­mal­ist, Scan­di­na­vian in­flu­enced wooden curves.
