Segmented Stripe and Mingled Plaid by Paul Smith

16-01-2018

Segmented Stripe and Mingled Plaid are the two latest results of the collaboration with the celebrated designer Paul Smith and Maharam.

Refined Segmented Stripe interprets a classic menswear pinstripe with bold, irregular bands of brilliant colour. Each one of these is created using a brocade technique and is slightly raised due to layering. The palette is drawn from traditional menswear hues, and combines a number of lively, saturated accents.

Mingled Plaid offers a modern take on Scottish heritage plaid. The textile continues Paul Smith’s interpretative approach to apparel themes using imaginative twists and elevated constructions.

The design boldly reinterprets the traditional features of a plaid — such as a rectilinear pattern, worsted wool yarn and a twill construction—through scale and colour. It is crafted in Scotland by expert weavers who specialise in wool.
