I have always adored the work of Paul Smith—ahem, Sir Paul Smith. Whether it be his narrow tailoring (with that perfect British cut) or the quirky prints and playful patterns, his collections have always resonated with me. So, when I heard about his mittens designed exclusively for Holt Renfrew, it was a (clichés aside) match made in heaven. Modestly priced at just $50, which isn’t too shabby if you shop Smith, the mitts come in a variety of Paul Smith’s signature, punchy stripes. [Cool fact: the idea for this collaboration was submitted by a Holt Renfrew employee as part of an internal program that encourages staff to submit ideas!]
Wait, there’s more: not only do they look good, they do good too. Proceeds from each pair sold support the Movember movement, which has been raising money through growing staches around the world for nearly a decade. Aside from doubling as statement-making hand dressings (and warmers!), they are also available only in Canada, and solely at Holt Renfrew. See below for a video from Sir Paul Smith himself, and a funny short by Laura Lanktree.
Reserve your pair online or visit your nearest Holt Renfrew or hr2 location to pick up a pair.
