A tie-in with the upcoming movie
Ever wanted to look as effortlessly cool as one of the Men in Black agents? Help is at hand from British designer Sir Paul Smith, who is launching a special capsule collection to tie in with his work on the upcoming movie blockbuster, Men in Black International.
The film is a continuation of the Men in Black series about the agents policing the alien life secretly living on Earth. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are in the lead roles this time around.
Smith was asked to work with the film’s costume designers to tailor the suits for the Men in Black agents – a distinct look, featuring a black tie, trousers and jacket, a white shirt and black sunglasses. To celebrate, Smith has also created a themed capsule collection of apparel and accessories, featuring aliens and icons from the film.
The collection centres on Smith’s ‘A Suit to Travel in’ – which comes in black and is lined with colourful alien characters, with a button on each jacket cuff featuring the Men in Black logo. Other items include a black tie with a repeated sunglasses graphic; a pocket square and a lightweight scarf featuring colourful alien characters; a money clip and cufflinks with the Men in Black logo; socks in four bold colours with embroidered alien motifs above the ankle; and an alien print leather wallet and iPhone case.
Smith has also created a version of his signature charm shirt that replaces the usual buttons with sunglasses, aliens and Men in Black logo details. An alien print hoodie and a refined polo shirt complete the line.
Men in Black International arrives in UAE cinemas on June 20. Smith also makes a cameo appearance in the film.
