Tods East/West 'Peggy' Bag

In case all of you were wondering why there are so many white bags being featured, there's a simple reason... I've mentioned that Metallics, Reds and Patents are in this Spring-Summer 2007, WHITE is also deemed as THE colour of this Spring-Summer 2007. So get ready to feast your eyes on another spankin' white hot bag, and this time around, it's by Tods. Known for their functional day bags and multipocket bags, (like the T Media Bag), this new Tods East/West 'Peggy' Bag is one of the more fashionable forerunners (vs. functional Tods bags) from their Spring-Summer 2007 Collection.

Have a look for yourself...

See what I mean?

I know some of you are thinking that this looks a little like the Derek Lam Violet Satchel (just without the Gargoyle/Dragon heads on the ring hardware on the Tods), but that’s only because Derek Lam is the Creative/Artistic Director of Tods. It’s only natural that he’d infuse his individuality and distinctive look into his creations, irrespective of whether he’s designing for his own label or for Tods. Its just exactly like Marc Jacobs’ signature push lock closures that we have become so familiar with and how we use that to identify the bag as a Marc Jacobs creation - it's an integral part of any Marc Jacobs piece.

If you want to get your hands on this lovely bag, it's made of smooth leather with contrast topstitching and gold metal hardware and oversized Golden metal ring clasp. The wide oval-shaped base (measuring 11.25" x 8" x 4.5") gives the bag a semi-structured look while the soft creamy leather adds just the right amount of "slouch" to the bag. A perfect combination!
