Smythe for Holt Renfrew 175th Anniversary Tuxedo Blazer

To commemorate 175 years of being in business as of this past September, a slew of designers created exclusive products for Holt Renfrew, including celebrated Canadian outerwear designer Smythe. I've been wanting a Smythe jacket for ages and decided to make my first this gorgeous one-of-a-kind wool tuxedo blazer. It features embroidery in Holts' signature magenta and as you can see, each blazer is completely unique: I have #147 of the 175 made. As per the quote, it definitely feels like I own a bit of fashion history!

Blazer: Smythe for Holt Renfrew / Top: H&M / Pants: 7 For All Mankind (here)
Shoes: Prada (in navy) / Necklace: Chanel (similar)

  26. I wrote a story about all the collabs Holt's was doing and this was the one that stood out most to me! Smythe is such an incredible label, so proud they're Canadian. That blazer looks absolutely amazing on you, such a stunning and sleek look!
