Tods Signature Collection: A New Era of Chic

The unmistakably TOD’S signature elements– sumptuous leather, hand stitching and pebbles (via the iconic Gommini driving shoes) have been incorporated into one fabulous new line called the SIGNATURE COLLECTION.  Anne Hathaway (looking gorgeous by the way, I find her prettier in print than film) is the face of this new collection shot by famed photographers Mert Alas& Marcus Piggott referencing Guy Bourdin’s world of luxury (TOD’S Creative Director Derek Lam once told me he is a big fan of Guy Bourdin) and art.  This candy colored collection is a vibrant tribute to the House of TOD’S.  I am itching to get my hands on the Signature fuchsia evening clutch bag above with removable chain ($1,095)– it reminds me of the iconic Chanel classic flap bag, injected with a modern youthful exuberance that Derek is known for.  I predict this will be the next big thing over at the venerable Italian brand known for its dedication to fine Italian craftsmanship.  Call your Tod’s boutiques quickly friends,  Tod’s Signature Collection hits stores in October and I bet it will be a sell out.  Carla Ajan at Tod’s Beverly Hills is our SA of choice– call her at 310-285-0591 for further details!

  1. The purses look great-I’m a big fan of Tods. But not Anne Hathaway. Why do these companies feel they need a celebrity endorsing their brand? We are not all wannabes!! Sick of celebs, what happened to the old days when models modeled fashion?

  2. I saw these a while ago…did not care for them…they felt plastic like. Also, most of the styles are matronly, despite the marketing to the younger set.
