Rapha’s ongoing collaboration with Paul Smith has proven to be extremely successful for the iconic cycling brand. Their preview video for S/S ’11 highlighted some great pieces from the collection, these trousers being one of them. “Smart, high-performance trousers with a contemporary cut and designed for summer city riding.”
Rapha turns us to a special video which highlights their collaboration with Paul Smith and its offerings for Spring 2011. On display is just about everything from the lineup including the versatile windproof shirts and we’re pretty a long sleeve henley was spotted as well.

Rapha has linked up with Paul Smith to design a sophisticated range of distinctive city riding apparel and accessories. The collection combines the design genius of Paul Smith with trademark Rapha innovation and performance. Best of both worlds? We think so. The end-all result is looking good, as the lineup delivers rain jacket, merino jersey, a polka dot cap and much more. The standout piece to us happens to be the leather town gloves, which are handmade in England from supple and durable goatskin leather.
The majority of the pieces are available now at Rapha but look for others trickle in over the next few weeks.
For their 2009 Holiday collection, Paul Smith recently linked up with Audio-Technica to craft these full-size headphones. They’re presented in a Paul Smith suiting fabric travel pouch.

Paul Smith and Rhodia initially teamed up for a collection back in 2005 which was a tremendous success, but when Rhodia’s 75th anniversary came around, Sir Paul Smith could not resist. He signed a new Limited Series where his fancy and his particularly English sense of style led him: on the famous card marked Rhodia orange or black, a true support for the fashion designer’s creation, his falsely naïve pencil sketches, underlined with his emblematic stripes.
