This season sees Smythson launch its first film campaign, ‘Journey to the Wild Side’— starring Phoebe Tonkin and Rhys Ifans, which celebrates the enchantment of travel. Smythson commissioned award-winning director and screenwriter Sophie Edelstein to create this truly magical short film.

The story follows an inquisitive tourist, played by Phoebe Tonkin, who has come to London for the first time to visit Buckingham Palace. However, finding the Palace proves to be not quite as easy as she first thought…

As her journey takes her through the winding streets and sights of London, she encounters three curious animals who show her a wilder side of the Capital.

For over a century, Smythson has accompanied some of the world’s most historically renowned travellers – from Jane Birkin, Grace Kelly and Katharine Hepburn to Sir Hardy Amies and Princess Diana – on their journeys across the globe.
