Images and video c/o Smythson
It's always exciting to hear about new releases from brands, especially when they are as prestigious and established as Smythson. I've actually got a Smythson item which I adore; a mint green jewellery roll I blogged about here (though somehow it hasn't yet featured on the blog!) but when I heard about the newest launch from the brand, I knew I had to share it.
The 1887 bag is not only a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, but also a work of art. 365 days in the making, this beautiful handbag comprises 97 pieces perfectly fitted together by an artisan over the course of 96 hours, resulting in a stunning and iconic handbag that is as as classic as it is treasured. Coming in a subtle array of four shades, ranging from monochrome to cobalt and blush, this bag simply embodies Smythson's exemplary 125 year history of providing luxury investment leatherwear with a contemporary edge.
To further whet your appetite for this feat of luxurious design, Smythson have also released a video which you can watch above, that perfectly captures the cleanly sculpted angles and elegant shapes of the 1887. It truly is a beautiful bag and one that transcends the latest fashion trends to become a staple fixture of your wardrobe all year round. The understated elegance and luxury finish hails it an icon in the making.
