How do you see the retail landscape changing post Covid-19?
There have been lots of discussion about how the retail landscape will change, and how the world of fashion will change. A lot of discussion about seasonless clothes, fewer deliveries going into the shop, maybe only two collections a year. Also, delivering clothes to the relevant season and not having winter going in [stores] in June or July, which is obviously very sensible. Nobody’s been brave enough to commit to anything yet, so let’s wait and see.
What do you hope for the future of Paul Smith?
One of the things I’m most proud of is continuity, so, for the future of Paul Smith, more of the same, please!
