THE PERFECT WORK BAG
Smythson has a history of crafting useful pieces for writers and poets.

THE SUSTAINABLE WELLIE
Stella McCartney has joined forces with British boot brand, Hunter, to create a collection of sustainable winter wellies. The rubber booties caused quite a stir when they first stepped out at Stella’s A/W 2019 Paris runway show. Made from sustainably sourced natural rubber, the waterproof boots boast all the Hunter trademarks, including sculptural soles and treads that have been ‘built-out’ by hand. Now where’s that puddle?
