The collaboration centers around two photo prints featuring vintage Manchester United scarves and rosettes. Paul Smith was an innovator in photo print during the 1970s and 1980s, and these unique prints reference that fact while celebrating Manchester United’s rich sporting history.
Accessories are the focus of the collaboration. Products in the range include a laptop sleeve, a wash bag, notebooks, leather wallets and cardholders, plus iPhone 8 cases. Introducing another Paul Smith design signature, a colorful striped design features on a wool scarf and pair of socks. Finally, with a nod to Paul Smith formalwear, the collection also includes two striped cufflink designs and a tie with the famous Manchester United crest, which is available in red or black.
Paul Smith has been the official formalwear partner of Manchester United for the past decade. This association began in 2008 when Paul Smith supplied the team and officials with suits for their UEFA Champions League Final victory in Moscow. Since then, Manchester United players and staff have also worn custom Paul Smith suits for their FA Cup Final appearance in 2018 and Europa League victory in 2017.
The Paul Smith & Manchester United collection will be available from paulsmith.com and selected Paul Smith shops worldwide, as well as the Manchester United Megastore, Old Trafford and United Direct from 9th November.
