Always ones for looking on the smarter side of things, Paul Smith released a limited edition Football to celebrate the world cup back in June.

Pretty hot property it was too. Only 200 made and at £199 a pop they were all snapped up!

The film that went with it though is perhaps the real success. Directed by young British film-maker Oliver Hadlee Pearch, it takes keepy-uppy from the schoolyard to one of the designer’s most iconic shops; Westbourne House in London’s

Notting Hill.

 

Bringing new meaning to “suited and booted”, in his Paul Smith Travel Suit, Guinness world record holder and former football freestyle world champion, John Farnworth pirouettes through the shop. Throughout, the football–one of just 200 produced–bounces perfectly on the toe or marbled soles of his Paul Smith Grand brogues. John barely breaks a sweat, but most importantly his suit doesn’t break a crease either.

Nice work Paul Smith. We salute you.
