Smythson are delighted to introduce the Mustard collection and the Maze bag for Autumn/Winter with colours and contrasting textures inspired by the spirit of the British landscape and changing of the seasons. Shades of Mustard, Forest, Cassis and Mocha are evocative of autumn leaves and winter hedgerows.

Following a history of over 120 years of innovation and design Smythson continues to develop a range of new and exciting products and collections drawing inspiration from archive pieces and new fashion trends.
The Maze bag has a lovely vintage 70s feel with contrasting goat skin leather and suede creating a soft, boxy silhouette in shades of Mustard, Forest, Cassis, Black and Mocha. Lined in smooth satin, the bag features an enamel hinge clasp in light brushed gold on the envelope pocket with three internal pockets and a zipped pouch to remain beautifully organised. Strikingly chic, the Maze clutch, with its envelope shape, is the perfect evening accessory. The Maze follows the success of The Nancy, which will remain as a core collection in Black and Dark Brown.
The Mustard collection in Adamo leather takes inspiration from the angular lines of contemporary architecture whilst the silver and yellow enamel slide lends a retro 70s feel. Edges are cut on the diagonal creating a new sense of perspective and shape. The Mustard collection includes the new MAZE bag and clutch, purses, travel accessories and diaries for 2009.
