London Fashion Week… Smythson presentation

By the Sunday of London Fashion Week enthusiasm to queue in the rain for a show was dwindling, so I was excited to pounce on the kind invite from Smythson of Bond Street to pop into their presentation at the newly refurbished flagship store.

Not only did we get to see the Spring/Summer 14 collection, we were also treated to a peek at a collaboration of artwork by notable Brit artist Quentin Jones. The installation is a series of ten artworks in Quentins collage style inspired by Smythson’s Panama diary and featuring a bunch of varied iconic figures from Sigmund Freud to Katherine Hepburn, Jonathan Saunders to Kylie Minogue. The exhibit runs until September 21st so hightail it down there.

From the post presentation images I see I just missed Anna Wintour, but I did see Kate Lanphear scuttling across Bond Street on her way to her next show whilst snagging a sneaky cig.

Once the culture box was ticked, it was on to the delightful Spring 14 collection, which was full of colour blocking craziness and cool leather accessories.

To top it all off there were delicious offerings to tempt even the most battle weary and hungover fashionistas in town.
