An exclusive exhibition was held by Tod’s in the prestigious location of The Hong Kong Landmark Atrium in celebrating the launch of their new SIGNATURE Collection. Truly, an evening dedicated to express Tod’s DNA and its underlining philosophy. With a unique installation concept, the SIGNATURE Collection is exhibited through specially designed modules with images of the products, the new advertising campaign and a creative animation video.
After years of research into the treatment of leather, Tod’s decided to create a decorative Gommino effect imprinted on leather to match a rich, inviting tactile quality to a special design. The result is the Tod’s SIGNATURE Collection, a range of bags and small leather goods where the gommino pebble motif has been imprinted in the leather to give a distinctive signature to the pieces, recalling the priceless value of the Made in Italy craftsmanship that lies at the heart of the Tod’s philosophy.
The models of the Tod’s SIGNATURE Collection include different shapes and sizes: a shoulder bag, a portfolio clutch, a small trunk style, a shopper, a soft envelope clutch and a pochette bag. Everything is realised with highly selected leather; very soft metalized leather; shiny calfskin and semi-opaque nappa leather. 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.
Serpenti Haute Joaillerie is the ultimate in Bulgari’s jewellery creativity and the latest expression of one of the brand’s favourite themes. The motif of the snake is brilliantly interpreted through the unique expertise developed by the Italian Brand throughout its 127 years of existence. In the three dazzling new variations, the iconic Serpenti, a “secret” watch and a precious masterpiece, is embellished with Bulgari’s exceptional mastery of jeweller-watchmaker and is consistent with the brand’s historical legacy.
The snake is a powerful universal symbol that has been part of the brand universe since the 1940s. Today, the incomparable expertise cultivated by Bulgari is given free rein in these spectacular new creations through the interplay of various original gemsetting effects and precious colour combinations. Predominantly white and green for the white gold version with diamond and emeralds; slightly more colourful in shades of white, green and mauve for the diamond, emerald & amethyst model, also on white gold; and resolutely multi-coloured for the combination of diamonds, amethysts and pink sapphires on rose gold, the Serpenti Haute Joaillerie is a collection literally dripping with gems of outstanding purity.
The number of stones varies from 763 to 1,009, depending on the version. They are delicately set over the entire underlying structure in white or rose gold weighing between 223.9 and 231.9 grams. Admirably evoking the scales of a serpent, this sparkling creation is fully paved yet without diminishing the supple, flowing feel of the watch on the wrist. Representing an exceptional achievement, the Serpenti Haute Joaillerie collection is naturally crafted in small quantities, in keeping with the finest Bulgari traditions. It brilliantly showcases the unique jewellery design codes of the Brand. The snake’s head – featuring eyes made in lapis lazuli or malachite – opens to reveal the full-paved dial echoing the stylistic theme of reptile scales and gracefully swept over by hour and minute hands.
