PAUL SMITH: "MANY PEOPLE LOOK, FEW REALLY SEE"
An aspiring cyclist growing up, Paul Smith was never interested in fashion as a teenager. But a serious bike accident at 17 put him in hospital for 6 months, and led him to reconsider his career options. Meeting the woman who would later become his wife, Pauline Smith, who studied haute couture at the Royal College of Art, would change his life. On 18 September, 2019, Paul Smith gave an exceptional masterclass at Sciences Po during which he shared his inspirations, life lessons, and secrets to managing a successful luxury and fashion brand that has withstood the test of time.
His very first shop, which opened in 1970 in Nottingham, was 3 square metres. “I needed clients to feel comfortable in such a small space,” he explained, “so I would place a cool object on a little table, a small work of art, a poster of Giacometti on the wall or something I found at the Galerie Maeght. People immediately feel more comfortable if there is something to have a conversation about.” Today, Paul Smith remains an independent company, “a miracle in and of itself” he says. With stores in 73 countries, the homey feeling of the boutiques and the quirky window displays have a reputation of putting smiles on peoples’ faces. “Effort is free of charge,” he says.
"It's not good enough just to be a designer"
When one sees Paul Smith in person, two things are immediately noticeable: his towering physique - (6'4", or 1m95), and his “feet on the ground” demeanor. Though he has been knighted by the queen and named Britain’s most successful fashion designer for many years in a row, he remains humble and extremely approachable. He says it himself: “I’m quite a relaxed person.” Something for which he feels blessed, as he remarks how difficult it is for young fashion designers to launch today.
“The world doesn’t need another fashion designer.”
Indeed, as we know it, the fashion world is saturated. He explains, “before, you had an idea in your head and in your heart, and you hoped somebody would like it." Today, he goes on, managing a fashion company is branding, marketing, influencing, and so on, and then, maybe, the clothes. Paul Smith believes that perhaps the secret to his lasting brand is that the brand itself is not - or most often not - too visible. “Because by the time a 14-year-old turns 20, he won’t want to wear Paul Smith because that’s what his dad wore.” "You can find inspiration in anything, and if you can't - look again!" When it comes to inspiration, Paul Smith’s creative eye knows no bounds. Showing a picture of a plant pot, he pointed to the screen and said, “I don’t see a pot, I see colour.” From that moment on, all eyes in the full amphitheatre were wide open. The designer flipped through his slides revealing images popping with colour. A picture showing women in traditional Guatemalan dress gave the room a bright red and blue hue. “This, becomes this,” he said, flipping to the next slide showing the pattern samples that resulted from this inspiration. “I’ve never actually been to Guatemala, but I did visit... a library.” Inspiration, for Paul Smith, can come from anywhere. The key, he says, is training one’s eye to not just look, but to see.
He has resisted buy-outs and intentionally remained a relatively small company. What is important to him is that Paul Smith stays true to 5 key values: design, communication, individuality, personality, and quality. A generous and warm character, Sir Paul Smith’s quirky sense of humour and immense creativity shined through his lecture. At the end, he opened up the floor for a student Q&A session - throwing pairs of striped Paul Smith socks to those who willingly participated.
This exceptional masterclass was organised by the Master's in Marketing and the Master's in New Luxury & Art de Vivre of the School of Management & Innovation, and made possible by journalist and author Laurence Benaïm, who teaches the course (in French) “Art et Mode : les liaisons dangereuses”.

Transition économique, transition sociétale, politique ou encore écologique... Et si tout cela était lié ? “Une société doit placer l’humain au coeur de son développement. Pour moi, c'est cela le vrai sens de "être libéral", rappelle Marie-Laure Djelic. Chaque semaine, dans son cours “The Great Transition”, Marie-Laure Djelic invite les étudiants de Sciences Po à interroger les transformations du capitalisme. Avec un objectif : repenser notre modèle économique pour qu’il devienne plus humain et durable.
Marie-Laure Djelic est professeur des Universités au Centre de sociologie des organisations (CSO) et doyenne de l'École du management et de l'innovation de Sciences Po. Ses travaux portent sur les transformations contemporaines du capitalisme. Elle enseigne le cours “The Great Transition - Responsibility, Innovation, Commons”.
Prof., c'est la 1ère websérie de Sciences Po. À chaque épisode, nous vous emmenons au cœur des salles de cours, dans cette rencontre entre un « Prof. », une discipline, et ses étudiants. Quel est le secret d'un cours réussi ? Une confrontation des points de vue parfois inattendue, souvent drôle, toujours passionnée. Pour revoir tous les épisodes de la série, rendez-vous sur notre chaîne Youtube.

Portée par Christine Balagué, Professeur à IMT-BS, et Marie-Laure Salles-Djelic, Professeur Doyenne de l’Ecole du Management et de l’Innovation de Sciences Po, la chaire Good in Tech vise à repenser l'innovation et la technologie comme moteurs d'un monde meilleur pour et par l'humain.
Elle va développer un programme de recherches autour de 4 axes :
- Innovation numérique responsable : quelles mesures ?
- Comment développer des technologies responsables « by design » ?
- Réinventer les futurs : Quelle société pour demain dans un monde numérique ?
- Gouvernance de l’innovation et des technologies responsables
KICK OFF - 12 SEPTEMBRE 2019 DE 8H30 À 12H
Séminaire grand public "Le numérique responsable : une utopie réaliste?"
- Repenser la société pour le 21ème siècle © futuribles international
La table ronde de Futuribles International du 18 décembre 2018 était consacrée à une présentation et à une discussion du rapport 2018 de l’IPSP (International Panel on Social Progress) que préside le prix Nobel d'économie Amartya Sen.
Elle était introduite par Marie-Laure Djelic, doyenne de l’École du management et de l’innovation de Sciences Po Paris, ancienne directrice du Centre de recherche sur le capitalisme, la mondialisation et la gouvernance de l'ESSEC Business School et Marc Fleurbaey, professeur à l’université de Princeton, titulaire de la chaire Économie du bien-être et de la justice sociale du Collège d'études mondiales.
Ils ont présenté le rapport 2018 de l’IPSP « Rethinking Society for the 21st Century » (Repenser la société pour le 21e siècle). S’inspirant d’instances internationales telles que le GIEC (Groupe d'experts intergouvernemental sur l'évolution du climat), l’IPSP nous livre avec ce nouveau rapport un vaste panorama de la situation sociale dans le monde, des enjeux majeurs et des actions pouvant être entreprises.

He is President of the French National Agency for Biodiversity. He received, in 2013 the Grand Medal Albert 1 of Monaco for his career, dedicated to the seas and oceans.
HUMANIty and biodiversity
Humans are naturally part of the biodiversity but they have also differentiated themselves from it by becoming one of the most powerful drivers of its evolution.
With this presentation, we will take a fresh look at how humanity developed in inscription within the biodiversity. This situation could seem paradoxical. On the one hand, recent research has shown how all species are incredibly connected to each other – humans being no exception. On the other hand, partly because of technological development – humans see themselves as increasingly distanced, different from other living species. Today, we are worried by the frightful impact of human activities referred to as the Anthropocene – destruction of ecosystems, widespread pollution, dissemination of everything everywhere, overexploitation of stocks (forests, fishing), and finally, of course, a fast changing climate which is very much to be attributed to our activities.
We will reflect upon the solutions to be implemented in order to move from faber to sapiens!
