Indulging in luxury from home is particularly apt right now, and for extra style points, we adore the Smythson Panama collection.
Whether looking to add a chic element into your homeworking environment or invest in some other luxury pieces, shop classic shades such as Black, Pink and Navy. Or make a splash with summer tones like Nile Blue, Turmeric, Azure and Sherbet.
Top of our picks include the Panama Gusseted Pouch (£225), A5 Zip Writing Folder (£395), Washbag (£255) and for when you do pop to the shops or venture outside, the exquisite Micro Tube Chain Bag (£185).
Arriving in the post from Smythson for us to sample recently, was their stunning Panama Trinket Case in Nile Blue (£165). Beautifully packaged in a signature blue Smythson box complete with ribbon, the compact rectangular trinket box is made of robust Panama crossgrain leather. The bright pop of cornflower blue is an instant boost, and with Smythson branding on both the gold zip and case itself, it feels an extremely decadent accessory.
Complete with soft suede interior and sleek stitching, the elegant and hardwearing leather which is intrinsic to the Panama collection dates back to the brand’s Panama diary, created by Frank Smythson in 1908. And it is a design and quality both classic and timeless.
The case’s zip and hardbound lid ensures practical storage for special jewellery or your favourite lipsticks, even holding medicines or other personal effects. Personally, I’ve popped it on my bedside table, keeping rings and huggie earrings in. Sitting pretty in pride of place, the piece is as aesthetically decadent as it is functional.
And most importantly, these luxurious effects bring beauty and elegance to every single day. Which just like the Smythson of Bond Street legacy, will last the test of time, and take us well past our current social distancing days.
