Tod’s is pleased to announce the launch of its new Tod’s Signature Collection, a range of luxury leather goods that celebrates the famous gommino pattern of the house.
After years of research on the treatment of leather, Tod’s decided to create a decorative effect that could be applied to leather to give a rich, invitingly tactile quality to special designs.
The result is the Tod’s Signature Collection, a range of bags and small leather goods where the pebble motif has been rendered in the leather to give a distinctive signature to the pieces, invoking the Made in Italy craftsmanship that lies at the heart of the Tod’s philosophy.
The models of the Tod’s Signature Collection include a shoulder bag, a portfolio clutch, a small trunk style, a shopper, a soft envelope clutch and a pochette bag.
The highest quality, specialist natural leathers have been sourced for the Tod’s Signature Collection and include a very soft patent leather, a metalized leather, a shiny calfskin and a semi-opaque nappa leather. All these have been chosen to highlight the signature pattern in a sophisticated way.
The colour palette ranges from strong, decisive tones of deep red, black, electric blue, fuchsia and violet, to softer shades of lavender, beige and cream.
The Tod’s Signature Collection perfectly expresses the DNA of Tod’s, bringing together ancient artisan leather-making techniques with modern design and technology to create pieces of wonderful quality that are perfectly suited to modern life. Like all Tod’s products, the Tod’s Signature Collection is both beautiful, precious and functional, and still suited to a metropolitan lifestyle, every day of the week and weekend, and every time of day and night. Significantly, the new pattern is not printed on, but rather imprinted in the leather, creating an interesting geometric play on a pattern that has been made famous by Tod’s, and can now be enjoyed in an exciting new form.
The technique used to create the Tod’s Signature Collection is extremely advanced, but born from the strong Made in Italy tradition of hand craftsmanship. Production begins with the use of a special high-pressure iron to establish the three-dimensional imprint on the leather. Then artisans form the actual pebble shape. There follows a process of mapping, stitching, and finally, natural quilting.
