Sir Paul Smith in China

Sir Paul Smith, the Nottingham born designer whose brand already has an established presence in Asia and the Middle East, is to re-enter the Chinese market by opening a flag-ship store in Shanghai with at least another 20 stores to follow across the country.
With a predicted annual growth of around 20%, the Chinese consumer market is providing a means for much needed profits increase for luxury brands that have been hard-hit by the tightening of purse strings in the North American and Euro-zone markets.
