STAN RAY TEAMS UP WITH PAUL SMITH ON WORKWEAR CAPSULE COLLECTION
We are pleased to announce a collaboration collection between PS Paul Smith Happy and Stan Ray uniting each brand’s idiosyncratic perspective.
Stemming from Paul’s long-time appreciation of heritage workwear, the partnership allows both brand’s distinct personalities to shine. Combining Stan Ray’s workwear credentials with PS Paul Smith Happy’s light-hearted, everyday spirit, the 10-piece capsule represents a fresh, versatile and truly modern interpretation of street and casualwear.
Founded in 1972 in Texas, the quintessentially US brand Stan Ray has decades of experience crafting hard-wearing, utilitarian clothing, governed by the motto “designed for wear and movement, with minimum fuss and maximum practicality”.
Comprising ready to wear and accessories, namely T-shirts, jackets, cargo trousers, shorts, tote bags and caps, the collaboration collection marries utilitarian design with pops of colour and print.
A patchwork theme is present throughout the collection with iconic Stan Ray pieces – like the Painter’s Pant, Shop Jacket and Fatigue Shorts – available in two-tone and camouflage colourways.
Made from typically robust fabric choices, including cotton drill, ripstop and military-inspired sateen and crafted using durable chain-stitching, the pieces also boast an array of practical details, including snap fastenings, patch and flap pockets and hammer loops.
Co-branded colourful jersey T-shirts, featuring a mash-up of the brands’ respective logos, provide a graphic element, while accessories including trucker caps and tote bags round out the collection.
