As far away as the connection between a bag and a horse saddle might seem, there are actually plenty of similarities between the two – especially their intricate construction process. Only an experienced craftsman can produce a well-made saddle and in the same way, quality bags are made only by the hands of artisans.

Tod’s bags are a continual celebration of quality and craftsmanship that is made in Italy and this season, the fashion brand looks towards the equestrian world when conceiving the new Sella bag for Autumn Winter 2013/2014.

The Sella Bag

Through clever interpretation, the Sella bag has reinterpreted the saddle in an innovative, feminine and contemporary way – through traditional artisanal craftsmanship and an elegant minimalist style.

At first look, the Sella’s gentle curves resembles the saddle elegantly sitting on the back of a thoroughbred horse. The bag’s lines are clean and simple but the details are decidedly inspired by horse-riding – the metal details reference bridles with their joints and brass rings.The bag is available in three sizes and in a dizzying array of materials and colours.

D-Bag Couture Collection

This season, the D-Bag also undergoes a dramatic transformation for the Tod’s D-Bag Couture Collection – the range of limited edition D-bags. A couture approach applied to the D-Bag – the five styles for Autumn Winter 2013/2014 are made from special materials like crystals and white lace.

For Autumn Winter 2013/2014, the famous House Gommini moccasins also get a makeover with unusual materials and finishes such as tweed lame and patent-leather-and-ponyskin combination. The footwear collection also features high-heeled ankle boots in python and refined pumps with special pebble details on the heels.

The Autumn Winter 2013/2014 collection is available at Tod’s boutiques at #01-48 Paragon and Level 1 Takashiyama Department Store.
