the other day, tuesday afternoon, tod's gave a press presentation of their spring/summer 2009 collection. it's defined by lovely colors—citrus, pastels, even neon. and even for the men's collection! these pre-spring pieces are already available in the greenbelt 4 store:
the rest of the collections will be in the store by late feb/early mar. like these: the new G bags, inspired by tod's current image model gwyneth paltrow (guess her campaign did the brand well; she's continuing on in the spring/summer ads):
these are the new neon bags made of scuba material:
and heels! who knew tod's made heels you could walk in all day. take note of the fine handstitching:
this particular sandal was everyone's favorite, but unfortunately, it won't be available in the philippines. the exotic lizard skin makes the retail price of HK$5,000 quite prohibitive for our market. but you can special order it at the store:
and lest we forget, there were lots of fun stuff for the men too. accessories! shoes! bags! this one below the women loved, a roomy shopper in the softest buttery leather: but here's the best part: an innovation that we wish all bags had—a mini-flashlight! why, the easier to find your stuff in the big black hole known as your handbag, my dear!
