Paul Smith Launches New Capsule Collection Inspired by Sony Pictures’ Men in Black International™. Accompanying his bespoke tailoring designs for various Men in Black secret agents appearing in Sony Pictures’ upcoming Men in Black: International,
Paul Smith has created a capsule collection of apparel and accessories featuring a host of aliens and icons from the film. The capsule collection features pieces for men, women and children and centres on Paul Smith’s “A Suit To Travel In,” which comes in black and is lined with colourful alien characters from the film with a button on each jacket cuff detailed with the circular logo of Men in Black: International, which is debuted in the new film.
To accompany the suits, a wide variety of accessories were created that include recognizable Paul Smith designs infused with icons from the franchise. Accessories include: • A black tie with a repeated sunglass graphic. • A pocket square and a lightweight scarf that come with a colourful motif featuring a host of alien characters. • A money clip and cufflinks that all feature the new Men in Black logo. • Socks in four bold colours with alien motifs embroidered above the ankle. • An alien print leather wallet and iPhone case.To further the collection, Paul has embellished the signature charm shirt – the ideal partner for “A Suit to Travel In” – by replacing the traditional buttons with sunglasses, aliens and Men in Black logo charms.
Additionally, casual pieces in the collection include an alien print hoodie and sweatshirt, plus a refined polo shirt. In collaboration with costume designer Penny Rose, Paul Smith supplies the universe’s most formidable alien-policing organisation with tailoring to suit their intergalactic work. Together, Paul and Penny designed custom pieces for five of the agency’s most illustrious men and women in black, as well as outfitting the wider cast of crime-fighters.
They have designed tailoring for Agents H and M. Agent H challenges the constrictions of the Men in Black uniform with a colourful lining (a known feature of Paul Smith tailoring) and a pair of Paul Smith signature stripe socks that give an irreverent finish. Agent M wears a two-button double breasted trouser suit. Both suits are made in Paul Smith’s “A Suit To Travel In” cloth, an all-wool cloth that has natural crease resistance, making the tailoring perfectly suited to keep the agents looking flawless whilst travelling through space and time.Fans should also look out for Paul when they watch Men in Black: International, as he makes an appearance in the film.
The Paul Smith and Men in Black: International capsule collection will be available from PaulSmith.com and selected Paul Smith shops and wholesale partners from May 2019 to coincide with the release of Men in Black: International, in U.S. and U.K. cinemas on June 14, 2019.
