Working in fashion is not without its hazards – every time a new season rolls around, we are tempted with new clothes to covet and “It” bags and shoes to know.
But while these pieces come and go, classics form the backbone of our wardrobes – no, we do not dress like the characters in The Devil Wears Prada. An example would be Tod’s Gommino loafers, which have been around for more than thirty years.
Covered with 133 rubber pebbles on the sole, you could say that Tod’s made its name with the super-comfortable Gommino. You don’t really mess with a classic but tweaking it on the other hand… that’s where founder of the influential Blonde Salad blog, Chiara Ferragni, stepped in, in an collaboration with Tod’s.
The exclusive capsule collection also consists of the Diodon bag, which similar to the Gommino, comes studded with rubber pebbles.
Both pieces however, have been given a refresher in an accessible powder pink hue by Ferragni – which as we all know, it’s practically the colour of the year. The collection is only available in selected cities and yes, Singapore is one of them.
