Paul Smith Marks 25 Years in NYC

Paul Smith took his first bite out of The Big Apple back in March of 1987 when he opened his first ever American retail store on the corner of 16th streets and 5th Ave. The store, which Paul Smith and his team designed themselves, has become an iconic part of the New York City shopping scene with its “classic with a twist” aesthetic that perfectly matches Smith’s clothing. To celebrate the quarter century landmark, Paul Smith has taken another bite out of The Big Apple, this time beautifully integrating the images of the apple into anything from T-shirts, button ups, wallets and laptop cases (just to name a few). The “anniversary collection (or “apple collection” as we’re calling it) in addition to other limited edition wares (like a watch and gold plated cufflinks) are for the taking while Paul Smith is celebrating 25 years in New York City.

The anniversary collection is available in all US Paul Smith stores as well as online at
