The colour pink is having such a moment. Think: Barbiecore, Valentino’s Pink PP collection and, most recently, Pantone’s 2023 Colour of the Year. Now to add to the fun, Canadian label Smythe’s pre-Spring collection zeros in on shades of the playful hue with outerwear, formalwear, suiting separates and a cozy knit sweater. But if pink just isn’t your thing, this drop is dotted with pops of green, crimson and navy, with a handful of items in classic black and grey. Something for everyone!
