For the Fall/Winter 2017-18 season, the Smythson brand has chosen to play on the fun side. This end of year the label presented silver leather, ideal to dress up for the holidays, camouflage print edited in shades of blue ranging from mauve to midnight blue. And for those who want more, the British brand also offers small round or heart-shaped keychains. Living proof that craftsmanship can be fun.
Frank Smythson founded his eponymous brand in 1887. The idea was to make everyday objects as functional as they are elegant. Quickly, the British label became renowned for their unprecedented leatherwork. In 1900, the brand offered a first timeless bag, the Bond Street bag (named after the London street where the label is established), before revolutionizing the diary eight years later with the Panama, a lightweight and hardwearing notebook, designed to fit in a breast pocket. Over time, these handmade embellished items, based on ancestral know-how, seduced famous figures such as Hollywood stars, great leaders and the British royal family.
Smythson’s talents are diverse: handbags, travel goods, stationery and small luxury leather goods.... For more than 130 years, the British label has been bringing a few touches of luxury into our everyday life, targeting those who like to travel in style.
