Ines spotlight on Canadian designers - Smythe

The creative genius behind Smythe Inc, Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe, have created a beautiful line of contemporary jackets and coats that evoke emotion, inspire nostalgia, and will ultimately form the basis of any wardrobe. Each piece is flawless in its design and uniquely created using textures, colors, and patterns that derive distinctly from traditional menswear designs.

The distinctive and perfectly-tailored fit lent itself to the huge success of the Smythe collection when originally launched in 2004. Since that time, the uniquely Canadian design company has been featured in such renowned publications as Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle magazine, and Teen Vogue.

The Smythe collections are increasingly expansive, with a celebrity following that includes Anne Hathaway and Blake Lively!

The celebrity following of Smythe includes the incredibly talented Blake Lively, star of such films as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and is currently featured on the weekly television show Gossip Girl.
This beautiful jacket is very similar in design to the one worn by Blake Lively in the previous photo. A very simple, traditional cut in an elegant color that demonstrates a timeless design. Picture this: a pair of my fashion scoop half gloves in my silver or my haze to subtley complement the already fabulous design!

This is a jacket that really pops! The firey red color makes this a perfect fall or spring jacket, and a perfect partner to a pair of leather pants, my sensual oh-la-la leg gloves, or a longer leather skirt. Experiment with different fabric types for a knockout outfit!

This pale blue jacket makes a wonderful addition to a professional ensemble, or it can accompany a pair of jeans for a casual stroll. Either way, the uniquely tailored design lends itself to a slimming, sexy fit! In keeping with the traditional design, try pairing this jacket with a simple yet elegant pair of my short every day glace gloves!
