LONDON — Smythson, the British stationery and luxury leather brand, will today mark the opening of its first stand-alone store in Asia, a 500-square-foot space at Hong Kong’s Pacific Place shopping center.
As part of the celebration, Smythson’s design director, Rory O’Hanlon, has married a piece of Smythson tradition with a Chinese one: The designer has updated a letter carrying case from 1908 from the brand’s archive and transformed it into a red python clutch.

"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)
