It’s D-Day! Or is it Italian Day? Between Gucci and Tod’s, this snob is having a major “molto bene” moment. From their Spring 2012 collection, Tod’s candy-colored D-Bags are so sweet my tooth aches! But no cavities here – this is the kind of sugar I’m happy to overdose on.
Many of my friends just think of Tod’s as the go-to for basics, like simple brown or black leather bags. But it’s time they meet the brighter side of the brand. It looks like the world is already catching on; in Asia, Tod’s is revered as one of the best Italian brands on the planet (as evident by the 13.5% rise in sales last year, driven mostly by the Asian market).
With ahead-of-the-curve Derek Lam at the helm, the timeless brand has developed a cult following. He’s done a fabulous number on Tod’s with edgy takes on the classics, like the D-Bag (which is “D” for Princess Diana). Bubblegum pink, robin’s egg blue, spearmint green: in snakeskin, it’s all delicious. As for me, I need the bright yellow snakeskin D-Bag, stat! To be available at Saks Fifth Avenue and Tod’s boutiques worldwide for $2,665.
