Since 1887, when Frank Smythson opened the doors of his first store on London’s New Bond Street, Smythson has been creating pieces that capture life’s unfolding narrative. From bags and accessories to notebooks, diaries, stationery, and home pieces, each is crafted to be a companion to a storied life. Long recognised for its exquisite craftsmanship, Smythson is the proud holder of two Royal Warrants with a rather remarkable clientele both past and present, from European Royalty and the Indian Maharajas to the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Vivien Leigh.
