Smythe has become a bonafide international success story (and their Canadian roots make us just that little bit prouder). Their luxurious blazers and outerwear are go-to pieces, as demonstrated by such varied trendsetters as Kate Middleton, Blake Lively and Rachel McAdams. Designers Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe have demonstrated their expertise in producing impeccably tailored jackets and coats that are cut, cropped and cinched in at all the right places.
For their Pre-Fall 2013 lookbook, the designers have dressed the collection down with relaxed shirts, hoodies and washed denim. The styling also points to the sex appeal of their curve-hugging designs and reveals how a downtown girl might wear one of the brand’s structured pieces (a fitted tuxedo stripe blazer in paired with pleated leather mini shorts, below). Like what you see? The Pre-Fall collection is in stores now, available at Holt Renfrew, Simons and TNT in Canada.
