The launch of the exhibition “Jackie’s Capri” – organised by luxury brand Tod’s and renowned Italian publishing house La Conchiglia in July has led to a limited edition collection of Tod’s signature items.
Based on the charming photographs taken of Jackie – the former First Lady and Mrs Kennedy – by photographer Settimio Garritano during her holidays in Capri at the beginning of the 70s, the collection features the bright turquoise colour of the sea around legendary Capri.
The shade can even be seen in some of the images, particularly in one featuring an elegant Jackie relaxing with a newspaper and what appears to be a cigarette (pictured above).
Tod’s has also recently renovated its boutique in Capri’s Piazza Umberto I – called La Piazzetta – in a wonderful medley of Italian colours and textures and reusing ancient glazed ceramics called majolica taken from the Amalfi coast (pictured below).
The Tod’s Jackie O in Capri collection includes a pair of Gommino loafers, a D Bag and a new bracelet design all in glorious turquoise and silver (pictured below).
Tod’s boutiques are located at Paragon Shopping Centre, #01-48 Tel: 6738 3323 and Takashimaya Department Store, Level 1 Tel: 6738 2212.
