Tods Handbags and Purses
Tod’s is a brand we all know, but its bags haven’t been the center of much discussion among us (or among our readers) for a while. I’ve loved some of Tod’s major shoe released, and the bags have always been very pretty, but there just hadn’t been one that caught my attention until I saw the super fun Tod’s Secchiello Bag.
Here’s Elizabeth Banks, exiting a hair salon in Beverly Hills with a Tod’s D-Styling Bag on her arm. (Am I missing something, or is the “D-Styling” one of the worst names in all of bagdom? It’s a shame too, because I love this bag.) The crisp lines of this supple Italian leather shopper pair especially well with Elizabeth’s preppy denim polka-dotted shirt and cropped rust red skinnies.
My feelings are a bit conflicted about it already being mid-October. On the one hand, I’m excited for the holidays, but on the other, I can’t believe how fast the year has flown by. However, the nice thing about the end of the year is that with the impending holiday season comes a slew of Limited Edition items from some of our favorite designers hoping to entice us to open our wallets and buy.
I have no complaints about Tod’s, it’s just that I am never really into their bags. Tod’s is known for their clean lines and quality materials, but their designs are so subdued that I often find them a bit forgettable.
Yesterday, Amanda and I popped into the Tod’s showroom to preview the Spring 2012 collection. Seriously you guys and gals, this collection is so absolutely fantastic that I can barely contain my joy – even at this moment. Last month when Amanda posted a sneak peek of what Tod’s had in store for us for the upcoming season, I already started to feel a bit of handbag-yearning.
For most people, I think the image that comes to mind when one thinks of Tod’s is that of comfortable driving shoes and fine, if very traditional, leather handbags. It’s a company that makes the kinds of things that everyone’s mother would be overjoyed to receive for Christmas.
