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.
