English designer Paul Smith brings his tailored cool to Mr Porter with a new capsule collection. Smith looks to American style icons such as Bob Dylan and President John F. Kennedy for the exclusive range. Talking to Mr Porter about Dylan, Smith explains, “His way of wearing a suede jacket, jeans and a very everyday shirt just seemed so…effortless.”

Smith’s design work perfectly embodies this sentiment. The cotton piqué polo shirt, houndstooth wool jacket, and smart cotton twill shirt contribute to the collection’s must-haves. Reinforcing Paul Smith’s sleek cool attitude, Mr Porter spotlights the capsule with an editorial. Yak frontman Oliver Burslem stars in the outing. Wearing Smith’s chic pieces, Oliver connects with photographer Ash Kingston and Mr Porter fashion editor, Eilidh Greig.
