Paul Smith’s cactus collaboration with Gufram

The furniture brand lends its cactus motif to ties, socks and polo shirts

Gufram’s cactus-shaped coat stand in psychedelic colours was the starting point for a limited-edition Paul Smith collaboration with the irreverent Italian furniture designers. Tiny cacti make an appearance on ties (£90), silk scarves (£170), socks (£17) and shirts (£170), creating a bold, slightly trippy aesthetic. My favourite iteration of the motif is as a cheeky logo on otherwise classic polo shirts (£190). A new edition of the coat stand (£4,400, limited to 169 pieces) in graduated colours by Smith is available to see and buy at a special exhibition at the Albemarle Street store until June 9.
