The Paul Smith Archive Comes Out to Play on Fifth Avenue

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The party may be over, but thanks to a little raiding of closets around the city, the celebration of Paul Smith's 25th Anniversary in NYC continues in the windows of his 5th Avenue shop.

Selected Paul Smith classics and the more outré are on display "for a couple more weeks," according to store staff we contacted today. Among them is a suitcoat constructed of super-soft blue terrycloth, and another of black burnout velvet. We didn't want to spoil it, so only a small variety are pictured in the gallery above. Take a walk and scope 'em out yourself to appreciate the finer details.

The lucky owners of these pieces? The Paul Smith archive, of course, but also Daniel Henning and James Costa, credited in the windows. Some people are obsessed with collection My Little Ponies or salt and pepper shakers; these guys go for Paul Smith.
