A less-known subsidiary to the Paul Smith family, the Red Ear imprint has remained an oddity to a certain extent, despite its notable progress since establishment. Designed as an extension to Paul Smith’s love of workwear, the Red Ear collection is a niche outlet aimed at representing an authentic modern take on traditional workwear and Japanese fabrics. The collection consists of a number of patchwork pieces, keeping the Japanese spirit alive, including a sashiko check pack, paneled worker trousers and delicately printed indigo pieces. The collection also includes a number of lightweight tie-dye pieces and a selection of basic products such as printed t-shirts, loopback-cotton sweatshirts and a range of raw selvedge denim. The Paul Smith Spring/Summer 2015 “Red Ear” collection The Paul Smith 2015 Spring/Summer Red Ear collection is now available at Paul Smith.
