Paul Smith

British fashion designer Paul Smith regularly crosses over into the world of design, applying his signature stripes most recently to Gufram's iconic cactus coatstand.

And despite being completed in 2013, the Paul Smith store in London's Albemarle Street designed by 6a Architects was extremely popular with our readers this year.

However it was Smith's contribution to a temporary crazy golf course proposed for London's Trafalgar Square as part of this year's London Design Festival that catapulted him into our fashion top 10.

Smith proposed a (you guessed it) stripy installation for course, which was also due to feature holes by Zaha Hadid and Tom Dixon among others, but unfortunately the Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the project failed to reach its target.
