Tod’s unveils Signature Collection at Italian Embassy in Paris
October 2, 2011: Tod’s launched its new Tod’s Signature Collection at the Italian Embassy in a wonderful setting at the Italian Embassy in Paris.
After years of research into the treatment of leather, Tod’s decided to create a decorative Gommino effect imprinted on leather to match a rich, inviting tactile quality to a special design. The result is the Tod’s Signature Collection, a range of bags and small leather goods where the gommino pebble motif has been imprinted in the leather to give a distinctive signature to the pieces.
The Tod’s Signature Collection includes a shoulder bag, a portfolio clutch, a small trunk style, a shopper, a soft envelope clutch and a pochette bag. Everything is realised with highly selected leather, like very soft metalized leather, shiny calfskin and semi-opaque nappa leather.
Always interested in culture and arts, the brand selected the sculptures of the Italian artist Marcello Jori to celebrate the new collection. Adding to the celebrity touch, the face of the new Tod’s Signature Collection is actress Anne Hathaway.
