Smythson's Biba collection

This spring, British stationer Smythson comes out swinging with the Biba collection. Inspired by the mod Kensington shop from the 1960s, the designs include a wallet ($330), mirror ($140), and a notebook ($160), all with a red-leather flower set into sunshine-yellow leather. Besides celebrating the current revival of '60s fashion, says Smythson creative director Samantha Cameron, "the flower reflects hope for peace."
