Hedley & Bennett’s x Parachute’s New Line of Kitchen Gear Is Magic
We love the aprons from their chic yet utilitarian collaboration.
Just in time for holiday entertaining, the new collection of aprons, pot holders, and table linens from Hedley & Bennett and Parachute means you can kit yourself and your kitchen in style. (They also make awesome hostess gifts.).
The collaboration is made with French linen and include napkins ($29 for a set of two), potholder ($29), smock apron $89, classic apron ($95), kitchen towels ($19), and a table runner ($49), and is available at parachutehome.com, hedleyandbennett.com, and at Parachute's retail locations in Los Angeles, New York City, and Portland.
The smock apron, as worn by Ellen Bennett (above), is a dream. It's practical with two pockets for stashing your phone or a kitchen thermometer, and yet with its loose-fitting crossback and curry-colored body, it's also flowy and elegant. There's also a traditional apron in the style that's a favorite of our test kitchen director, Sarah Carey.
How did this collab come about? Parachute's Ariel Kaye and Ellen Bennett of Hedley & Bennett met at a dinner. The two female entrepreneurs found they had a lot in common and started discussing how their brands could work together.
"I thought, if we combine Parachute's aesthetic and refinement with H&B's expertise in form and function, we'll have this amazing collection that melds both worlds-and that's exactly what we did!" says Bennett. "We pushed ourselves to experiment with color-something Hedley & Bennett does so well-and found common ground with a beautiful palette perfect for the holidays." says Kaye. And "both our brands are about quality and timelessness." notes Bennett.
Better act fast, the collection is a limited edition.
