It has been a while since we have covered Tod’s on Purse Blog. It was not by intention, as we are huge Tod’s fans. The fact of the matter is anytime we view a Tod’s collection we see simple elegance. Every collection continues to bring forth a sophisticated touch that has become ubiquitous with the brand.
Tods D Bag is the highlight of the Fall/Winter 2010 collection. This season of items from Tod’s can be summed up by tradition, fine craftsmanship and functionality. This is not the first we have seen of the D-Bag but there are new sizes, colors, and skins. Celeb fans include Diane Kruger, Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Leighton Meester, and Nicole Kidman.

The allure of Tod’s handbags speaks for itself. Tod’s bags are known for understated elegance, known for clean lines, known for squeaky clean designs, and brilliant craftsmanship. If you walk with your head looking at the ground you will notice many business men wear Tod’s shoes and women adore their flats. It is all warranted. I am not saying that Tod’s creates every design with an ingenuitive thought or direction, but they continue to create handbags that are well-made and show unending beauty.
As I was scouring Saks for a new great handbag I ran into the Tod’s Medium Rounded D-Bag, and while the flashy clutches and metallic exotic skins caught my attention, so too did this handbag. You see this bag does exactly what Tod’s has become known for; catching your attention without stealing it. The shape is classic, the slightly textured calfskin is perfect, and the topstitching gives the perfect finishing touch. The tassels on either side are silver-tipped, which gives off that slight glimmer when you walk gracefully and a passerby’s eye is caught by the bag. But the overall product is simple, even bordering on ordinary. It is that the craftsmanship and beauty transcends over the internet and lets me know that this bag is another sure shot from Tod’s. Nothing to place on your wish list at this very moment and burn and pine for, but something that would last for years upon years and be worth every penny. Measurements are 14″W X 11″H X 5″D. Buy through Saks for $1350.
