For fall, design director Rory O’Hanlon riffed on Smythson’s classic shapes and also introduced new ones to the mix. Among the highlights was the Soho Clutch. It looked just like Smythson’s traditional Soho diary, right down to the gold clip fastener and gilded edges that resembled pages. Another new model was the Berkeley bag. Named after the square in central London, the structured bag’s shoulder strap and handles were done in color combos including cognac and cobalt, cream and pink and khaki and yellow.
O’Hanlon has also introduced a capsule collection based on the brand’s signature Panama bag. These pieces came in black, white and gray, all lined with powder-pink suede.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
