yesterday afternoon, there was a special viewing for tod's fall/winter 2008 collection at their one and only branch at greenbelt 4. there were a couple of principals from hong kong, hannah and flora, who showed us each piece and explained its merits. meanwhile two models—isabel and mia—walked around the room, in head-to-toe tod's ensembles, which sadly are not sold here (too bad, that quilted jacket sure looks cozy). here's the dok bag, as seen on gwyneth paltrow in the ad campaign: and the cute baby version: how about the elegant diamond lock clutch in lizard, croco, snakeskin, or satin, or a combination of all: the pashmy is perfect for travel, especially in rainy weather, because you won't worry so much if it gets wet. it's made of nylon but it sure feels like silk! hannah even suggested that you can use it as a pillow for those long-haul flights :-) and how about some shoes? we love these flat snakeskin loafers, a variation on their classic and much-copied pebble-sole driving shoes: and if you still have those booties from two seasons ago, hold on them because it's still a hot look.
tod's fall/winter 2008 collection will be in the store by september
