Most of you should be familiar with the Tod’s Sella by now, an elegant leather bowler that made her debut last season. And depending on the size you liked, you would have ended up with a functional work bag or a small sassy number with adorable rounded sides. Today I would like to meet the Sella‘s new interpretation for S/S14, the Sella Shopping Tote.
At first glance it looks almost similar to its predecessor, but stare at it long enough and you’ll realise the subtle changes. Gone is the top zip closure (at least for the largest of the 3 sizes, that is), its bulbous body also streamlined into a slimmer shape. It also somehow looks cleaner and less elaborate than the original, a good thing for those who are looking for a no-nonsense, fuss-free work companion.
Available in 3 sizes ranging from 30 cm by 24 cm all the way to 32 cm by 34 cm, there are slight differences among all 3. While sizes Small and Medium come with a zip top closure, the one in Large doesn’t. But to cleverly make up for it, it is also the only size that comes with its own detachable zip pouch, which is always handy in my opinion.
You can pick up the large one via LUISAVIAROMA or Net-A-Porter where they sell for SGD2080 and GBP935 respectively. Or head down to Tod’s at Ngee Ann City or Paragon where all 3 sizes should be currently available. And once I get all 3 retail prices in SGD, I’ll be back to do a quick update so hang in there.
