With a history that embeds them deep within Italy’s fashionable roots, Paul and Shark are one of the handfuls of brands that come out of one of the world’s most stylish countries with a background that is based around a truly honest and functional purpose.
Following a trip to Maine that led to the label’s founder Paolo Dini finding himself a small sail maker’s workshop, the inspiration for Paul & Shark was born.The 1970’s saw Paul & Shark enter the sports fashion arena with a small collection that was aimed and inspired by a seafaring lifestyle. Using an extensive knowledge in luxurious materials and elegant Italian design, Paul & Shark innovated fashion with a pioneering spirit, spearheading everyday style with technical fabrics that would live up to life at sea, and take days and nights on the city streets well within its stride.
The range covered every aspect of a lavish lifestyle- from Paul and Shark polo shirts that made for the perfect stand out piece for warm summer days or for layering under a Paul and shark jumper during the winter months, the brand brought an entire look that was born from the seas.
Blending passion with luxury aesthetics, Paul and Shark still remains a family run business, despite its now international presence. From Beverly Hills to Dubai, the likes of Paul and Shark polo shirts with the now iconic shark logo on the chest have become a worldwide claim to a style statement that embraces an unrestrained lifestyle.
