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.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
