Smythe and Beaufille Collaborate on a Must-Have Jacket for Spring

SMYTHE 318

Mick and Keith. Mac and cheese. Whiskey and soda. Good collaborations are timeless, and when it comes to fashion, they can also create the kind of must-have item you won’t be able to live without. This spring, Smythe designers Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe have collaborated with Chloé and Parris Gordon of Beaufille on a smoking jacket design that combines the former’s masculine-heavy aesthetic with the latter’s artisan sensibilities.

The Beaufille Collaboration Smoking Jacket sees Smythe’s classic single-button shawl collar silhouette reinterpreted in a delicate and feminine custom jacquard fabric. The imagery on the fabric was hand painted by Eve Gordon, a fine artist and mother of Chloé and Parris, and is based on a vintage Chinoiserie brocade. The jacket will be available in a blush shade for Spring 2015, and because both parties were so pleased with the collaboration, it will also be carried through for Pre-Fall 2015 in Pacific Blue.

The Spring 2015 Beaufille Collaboration Smoking Jacket will be in stores in early February. For locations, visit smythelesvestes.com.
