We are still not over with the horse and saddle enlivened bags, we are still not over with expressing the world of saddler once again with a pop touch and before anything else, we aren’t done with Tod’s note-perfect leather craftsmanship! So, all in all putting together whatever luxuries we highly covet for, here is the Tod’s Sella bag sitting stunningly by the window of every Tod’s boutique. Aren’t we going to introduce ourselves to this bowler bag?
Oh, hello Sella! Oozing feminine sophistication, occasional pop shades and some natural colors, contemporary plus sensual vibes, chic-equestrian-inspired look, metal details, tubular stitches (paying homage to horse-riding), a curved strip of high-quality leather with a luxurious cut, this contoured and clean bag is a Tod’s iconic. It came into view in Fall Winter 2013 with the creative efforts of David LaChapelle who got enlivened by the shape of horse’s dressage saddle.
Keeping up with the label’s heritage in saddle making and tanneries, this Tod’s Sella bag is a versatile staple for every season. Adding more to it, the design and the multi rich shades make it a choice of grace for day and night.
Exposed hand-dyed piping, frontal brand plaque, Tod’s matchless quality throughout, curvy shape, top-zip fastening, two rolled up handles, detachable shoulder strap and a chic yet timeless look all together is sure to sway you. You know what relates to its equestrian inspiration? Its extra long leather zipper pulls and contrast piping. Moreover, the production methods are like those of ancient saddle makers; the ribbing and stitching techniques are akin to the traditional structures, making its roots strong.
We know, we know; you like choices, with many choices you are much happier! That might be one of the reason as to why this bag is predominantly popular from Milan Fashion week and has been seen in the arms of Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, Liu Wen, Faye Tsui, Michelle Madsen, Zhang Ziyi and Sara Brajovic. With rich colors, it has two shapes; bowler and shopper. Each of these styles are further offered in four sizes where the largest size resembles a saddle and the smaller two are shaped like dumplings.
While small and mini are perfect for day to day, the bigger sizes like large and medium are great for work and shopping so you aren’t needed to be satisfied with too big and too small, you can simply find the one that suits your needs. The beautiful Sella does come in pony skin and embossed grained leathers.
Are those the mortgage-sized price tags with Tod’s Sella bags! Yes, we do agree that the Sella has a mortgage-sized price tag for many of us and we can just praise it from afar, but its cost comes with an unseen style, lavish leather and versatility. Talking about the versatility, the bag comes with a detachable shoulder strap; you can sling it on, wear it over shoulder, carry it by hand or even across the body.
Trade in your every other bag with this thing! Yes, you definitely will, if we are going to talk about its quality. Every piece is cut by a variety of needle workers and master leather workers and its painstakingly hand-stitched and sewn. Each of the exteriors, made up of fine materials, is hand-checked to eliminate any flaws and they are sourced responsibly from some of the best tanneries of the world.
Hey, don’t be afraid to just open this ladylike bag, it has spacious interior. The inside reveals a contrasting interior that can fit a lot, and by a lot- we really mean it. The beautiful shape further provides a fresh vibe to its interior. You can easily fit in your wallet (a big one), zip coin purse, scarf and other necessities. Moreover, there is an internal zip-fastening pocket to secure all your small necessities like cash, cards, keys and lipstick.
