THE ACTORS’ STUDIO: Smythson’s new ambassadors, British actors James Norton and Vanessa Kirby, will front the brand’s spring campaign that was photographed by Paul Wetherell at a London townhouse.
Norton and Kirby were photographed with pieces from Smythson’s Burlington collection, which includes a deerskin buckle tote, holdall, backpack and messenger bag. The Albermarle bucket bag and Eliot folio and tote bag also make appearances in the lifestyle campaign.
Norton plays Prince Andrei, a heroic soldier in the BBC’s “War and Peace,” which is currently airing in the U.S.
Twenty-eight-year-old Kirby will play Stella in Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire” off-Broadway at St. Ann’s Warehouse starting on April 23.
The Smythson campaign is to break online, including on all of the brand’s social channels. A targeted media campaign is also launching in March, according to the company, which didn’t divulge details.
