Tod’s Treccia Bag

You know we adore Tod’s but the Treccia bag from its Fall collection is ugly and creepy. Those giant buckles look like Alien googly eyes staring at me and no matter which way I turn, they follows me. That’s not the only thing hideous about this bag though, the shape is old and frumpy and the braided handles look like a last minute attempt to salvage this bag. It’s like someone had enough sense in the design process to say “holy shit, this is a piece of crap, let’s at least add braided handles so it will look Bottega-ish” Nice try but this don’t fly. And that dangling logo tag is a departure from its usual subtle logo placement, a huge thumbs down from the Bag Snob. Did I mention it is monstrously large? Can’t even imagine how heavy this must be. It comes in dark pukey grey or shiny black. Tod’s Treccia Bag at eLuxury- $1,490.

    Bagsnob,

    I so agree with you. The buckles look like alien eyes! WHAT’S HAPPENING TO TOD’S?!?!? What I like about them is their utilitarian yet chic approach to accessories. And now this?! Really disappointed. 🙁

    tods has never been one of my favourites…

    they stick to classic models making themselves safe, but every time they try to do something diferent, even follow a trend, they fail…

    It looks like the designer loves Alexander McQueen’s Novac-bag and mixed it with resent bags from Prada, Dior, Luella…and I agree with you about the result…It looks tacky!
