It’s finally autumn outside! Well, the leaves don’t actually change and we don’t really get to throw on a real coat or boots for another two months, but here in the Kong this is as close to fall as we will see. I know what I am normally thinking around this time of year and I am pretty sure you have the same thing on your mind… closet revamp! While that just may mean rearranging what’s in the wardrobe, it could also mean adding a piece or two to update your look and make you feel fabulous for all the upcoming holidays! But what to add that can carry you from day to night and polish any look you can dream of? A bag from the Tod’s Signature Collection, of course!
These amazing high quality bags are made of the finest shiny calfskin and semi-opaque nappa leathers. The process for making these bags involves double pressing the leather from above and below so that the embossed print rises and dips in both directions giving these bags a texture that is pure bubbly bliss! The gommino motif is based on the pebble print on the bottom of those famous Tod’s driving moccasins, hence the “Signature” name. There are a myriad of pieces to be had including the large shopper (an Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel fave), a soft envelope clutch that has been carried by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, and several smaller pouches to hold all your little odds and ends.
Personal faves, you ask? I love the envelope clutch in the dark red and the large blue shopper. Here, I have styled the Signature shopper two ways that both seem to fit the ever-busy Hong Kong lifestyle. This oversize bag would hold everything! I could stuff it with my iPad for work, some magazines to read on the MTR, and of course, the scarf, umbrella, and camera that every HK girl carries. I actually think this bag would look better filled to the brim!
So now you have something to start your holiday wish list off with! Be sure to swing by any of the multiple Tod’s locations in Hong Kong to try one of these shiny satchels for yourself. And remember, no matter how daring you go with the color choice, it’s still a classic Tod’s bag so you will always be in style!
