Tis the season to break out your boldest style accents and make a sun-kissed statement. Don’t get us wrong, your favourite summer dresses and shorts are great, but let’s not forget about the accessories that complete your look. This year, forget about the tired old cliches of bright colours and floral prints and instead, give your accessories a touch of your very own style. And who better to show you how to do that than Tod’s? They’ve taken the summer classics and given them a contemporary, unique spin that will have you turning heads. Because sometimes, the best way to honour a classic is to give it a fresh twist.
Tod’s Italian craftsmanship and philosophy of refined, understated luxury have earned them an unprecedented reputation. The Impeccable taste in their designs and enviable quality with attention to detail are evident in every product they create, from essential pieces to iconic garments. All of which are customized in construction and proportions to offer premium quality with a minimalist design flair.
For this spring/summer collection, the brand has artfully restyled its most iconic Di Bag which has been a staple for decades, gracing the arms of some of the world’s most iconic celebrities. From Princess Diana to Nicole Kidman and Naomi Campbell, this bag has always been a symbol of luxury and sophistication. But now, under the creative direction of Walter Chiapponi, the Di Bag has been boldly reinterpreted for a new generation.
The Legacy Reigns…
Gone are the sharp lines of the past, replaced with a more sensuous and supple design. Chiapponi has enlarged the bag, making it a multifunctional accessory that can be worn in a variety of ways. All of Tod’s bags are crafted using techniques similar to ancient saddle makers, requiring exceptional skill and attention to detail. The latest iteration features an exquisite mosaic of different leathers that have been meticulously hand-woven into one-of-a-kind pieces. They feature a unique steel nib at the bottom for protection, a signature detail of many of Tod’s products. This exceptional display of upcycling exemplifies the epitome of luxury and stands as a shining example of the fashion industry’s commitment to sustainability.
The best part is that now you can indulge in the ultimate luxury experience with Tod’s My Di Bag service. Choose from four different sizes and seven vibrant shades to create your perfect canvas. But why stop there? Make your Di Bag truly one-of-a-kind by personalizing it with your name, initials or even a short message. With Tod’s expert craftsmen carefully handcrafting your bag, you can be assured of its exceptional design and premium quality.
Tod’s has always been known for their dedication to traditional fine craftsmanship, and their commitment is on full display in this new collection. With ingenuity and inventiveness at the helm, the Di Bag embodies the perfect balance between past and present, tradition and innovation.
The pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship…
Other than its iconic bags, the Italian brand is famous for its meticulous attention to detail in crafting its shoes as well. They’re crafted with meticulous attention to detail using over 100 steps and up to 35 pieces of leather. Each piece is individually treated and checked for quality before being assembled by skilled artisans who specialize in each task. The brand uses only the finest leathers from top tanneries around the world, particularly from Germany and France, and rejects any hides that do not meet their quality standards.
The result – their beloved classics, out of which are Gommino Bubble or Bubble Ballerina shoes, which are perfect for slaying the gorgeous Italian summer getaway look (irrespective of the location of your fun summer escapades). Their Bubble ballerina sandals with their massive pebble soles and contrasting colours are perfect for capturing that fabulous summer vibe. And the Bubble Gommino, with its trademark gommini soles and heels, takes the iconic Gommino to the next level with true artisanal craftsmanship.
The brand is known for creating iconic and versatile footwear, and the W.G. lace-up ankle boots is no exception. This chunky yet elegant boot is a staple in any fashionista’s wardrobe.
If you’re looking for effortless sophistication, then look no further than Tod’s hand-made Moccasin. This shoe exudes the unmistakable aura of masterful craftsmanship, perfect for flaunting your style with poise and elegance.
Tod’s Spring-Summer 2023 collection balances luxury with minimalism. Amidst a sartorial scene saturated with ornate maximalism and bold patterns, the essence of understated elegance exudes a much-needed revitalizing fashion appeal. So whether you’re a fan of the classics or looking for something new and daring, this collection is a sure-shot way to make your summer looks more hotter in the best possible way.
