Paul Smith 531 cycle wear collection – first look
Sitting comfortably? This new performance cycling collection from Paul Smith looks superb for the growing ‘cycling chic’ niche, but the prices may give you palpitations.
The Paul Smith 531 collection uses high-performance Swiss-made Schoeller 3xDRY fabric to fend off water while wicking moisture away from the body, and insulation and breathability is provided by 100% New Zealand Merino wool layers. Windproof front panels on items such as the gilet offer a shield against the driving wind.
Bright orange is a recurrent theme for many outer pieces like the gilets and jackets, along with subtle reflective stripes and reflective branding, whilst elsewhere there’s different shades of stealth black, dark purple and petrol blue.
