It’s in the (Smythson of Bond’s) Bag
Smythson has been on a roll lately. After launching a series of successful limited-edition leather and paper goods with fashion designers—including its latest collaboration with rising star Jonathan Saunders—the century-old Brit brand is dabbling in more color, and it’s going over exceedingly well. Case in point: its new Chameleon collection, with 17 “mix and match” bestsellers redone in six vibrant and quirky hues like mustard, cranberry, azure, and midnight violet. The assortment includes everything from bookishly cool pencil cases to neat zip-around writing folders, but we’re most interested in the cosmetic cases. Crafted with soft, grained goatskin leather, the pouches are the ideal size for holding one’s weekend essentials—foundation, lipstick, mascara, powder, and an eyelash curler (add it to your must-have list if it’s not already on there). Should your essentials include a few more items, the square cases offer a bit more room, along with a quilted interior and mirror. Holiday wish list, here they come.
