The original D Bag was
introduced in the ‘90s as part of the first ever Tod’s bag collection. The new
range was a classic, chic reflection of the quality and design of Tod’s shoes.
From the first, the D Bag proved popular, particularly with Tod’s celebrity
clientele - Princess Diana, Catherine Middleton, Princess Caroline of Monaco,
Charlotte Casiraghi, Cindy Crawford, Kristin Scott Thomas, Julianne Moore,
Jessica Alba, Hilary Clinton, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, Cate Blanchett,Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron, Diane Kruger
and Naomi Watts are among the many prominent women who have owned one. The D.D. Bag plays up the lines
of construction of the bags. Key features are the
signature central-stitched seam and rolled handles, with an
"almond-shaped" handle-end, all with hand-painted raw-leather edging.
On these, the top zip is adorned with a graceful long leather loop that adds a
touch of convenience. The bag is offered in various and versatile sizes, and
has an adjustable shoulder strap.
Among the fine materials used for the D.D. Bag models are the most precious and refined leathers, including an even more luxurious note with three variations on the exclusive python leathers. The wide colour palette ranges from spice and earth tones, to neutrals and new vivid festive summer colours.The production techniques used to create the D.D. Bag are similar to those used by ancient saddle makers. Extreme skill and attention to detail is required for the cutting of the leather and the sewing and finishing of each style, as it is meticulously pieced together.

A. Lange & Söhne GRAND LANGE 1 with unique assets such as the off-centre dial configuration, the outsize date, the three-day movement, and the flawless craftsmanship of its manufacture calibre, the LANGE 1 triggered a fresh breeze in the realm of precision watchmaking when it was launched 18 years ago. Since then, it has been the face of A. Lange & Söhne. Featuring a more slender silhouette and a totally new manufacture calibre, the GRAND LANGE 1 became an icon in its own right last year. For this model, Lange’s developers succeeded in preserving the 72- hour power reserve of the LANGE 1, but this time with a single mainspring barrel. This decision reduced the vertical space occupied by the movement. The characteristic dial architecture of the LANGE 1 wasproportionally transposed to the larger model. With its white-gold case and black dial, the new model variation of the GRAND LANGE 1 projects a striking personality. Thanks to luminous hands and appliques in rhodiumed gold, the time and the power reserve are highly legible even in the dark. The charismatic elegance of the new LANGE 1 family member is underscored with a black crocodile strap and a Lange prong buckle in solid white gold. The manufacture calibre L095.1 features a classic screw balance, a balance spring developed and produced in-house, the brand-typical movement architecture with a three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and lavishly hand-decorated movement components.
