Tods is launching a new handbag/SLGs collection called the Signature Collection this fall. This new collection takes iconic attributes from the house like house-leather, stitching, pebbles (from the driving shoes) and incorporates these elements into this new collection. This collection will be a recurring collection each season moving forward.
For the duration of the launch of the Signature Collection Anne Hathaway is the new face Tods will be associated with. The ads were shot by Mert and Marcus earlier this year in London.
The core texture of the Tods Signature Collection is the pebble texture of the iconic 'gommino' driving shoe that has been rendered into leather. The color palette of the range includes strong and decisive tones of red, black, electric blue, fuchsia, and violet to subtle shades of lavender, beige, and cream. The bags will drop in Chicago's newly remodeled Oak Street Tods boutique in October.
