It’s not every day that we get invited to have Breakfast at Tiffany…like, for real! So when I received an invitation to grab a morning bite and take a look at the Tiffany Leather Collection at the posh Bloor St. location, I pretty much squeeled like a little kid. Can you blame me?
When I arrived, bright and early, I got to meet the men behind the collection – Richard Lambertson and John Truex. As design directors of the Tiffany Leather Collection, Richard and John had a lot to share about the pieces they helped design and develop. And their passion for Tiffany handbags and accessories was definitely contagious!
The Fall 2011 collection is chock full of gorgeous (and seriously well-made) totes, bags, clutches, and small leather accessories. One piece that captured everyone’s attention was definitely the Tiffany Reversible Tote (below), with rock-n-roll metallic (or Tiffany Blue) lining, this tote is literally two purses in one. No need to switch bags, or spend double the money.
My favorite bag from the preview, however, was definitely the Tiffany Avenue Shopper (below) in leopard haircalf with Tiffany Blue leather trim – nice and roomy, with an unexpected pop of color – this is a dream bag for me. Just perfect.
Not surprisingly, Tiffany Blue accents were consistently present throughout the collection. Be it lining, or hardware accents – each bag had Tiffany written all over it (don’t worry, not literally!), and it was a really nice surprise to discover these subtle details.
This was my first introduction to Tiffany Leather Collection, and from what I’ve seen so far, I am really impressed. With prices ranging from $50 to $17,500, anyone can find a piece suited for their taste and budget…especially with the holidays coming up.
What do you think of the Fall 2011 offerings? Let me know in the comments.
