Originally established in a 3 x 3 metre shop in Nottingham in 1970, we now sell in 60 countries and have 130 shops around the world - plus wholesale and franchise locations. The company has over 1000 employees across the UK and internationally.

A stone’s throw from Paul’s first London shop in Covent Garden, Paul Smith HQ is home to the design team with Paul’s office on the top floor. Every Paul Smith product starts life in this London office, with Paul involved in every decision.

Reaffirming the values that Paul set down in 1970, ‘classic with a twist’ remains the guiding principle of the company.

Paul’s saying, that 'you can find inspiration in everything’, means that references are eclectic, coming from high art and everyday life. Each Paul Smith design is underpinned by a dry British sense of humour: quirky but not frivolous, eccentric but not silly.

Happily positioned between high fashion and formalwear, while taking reference from both, Paul Smith has always been proud to stand apart.
