A blazer becomes a blazer in the hands of Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe, the designers behind Toronto’s sought-after brand, Smythe.

Since 2004, Smythe’s designs have been the tailored toppers-of-choice for everyone from Kate Middleton to Anne Hathaway to Blake Lively, and the goal of penny-saving sartorialistas the world over. And yet, despite its rather hefty price tag, a Smythe blazer is designed with living in mind (both Lenczner and Smythe are working moms after all), meaning that fit, function and fashion co-exist beautifully in each piece.
