Watch Swim Deep turn models for Paul Smith

Watch Swim Deep turn models for Paul Smith

The designer launches his A/W14 ‘pre-collection’ with the Birmingham band in tow.

Swim Deep aren’t averse to playing clothes horse - Zachary has already appeared on the catwalk for Hedi Slimane, for example - and now the Birmingham quartet have found themselves the stars of a video to help launch Paul Smith’s A/W14 ‘pre-collection’.

They feature in a video posted to Smith’s website, in which they walk, turn, frolic and pose in what appears to be deliberately over-the-top ways; it’s all a bit French cinema, with a knowing wink. 

The collection itself - including the pink flamingo scarf as shown off by Austin above - can be viewed here.

Swim Deep are currently working on their second record, and will appear at Isle of Wight, British Summer Time, Truck and Victorious festival across the summer.
