This Fall, Tiffany & Co. launched a beautiful Leather Goods Collection featuring bags and accessories that are elegant in design, rich in color and heavenly to the touch. Michael Kowalski, chairman of Tiffany & Co, held a cocktail party last month to celebrate the successful launch. In attendance were design directors, Richard Lambertson and John Truex, a duo known for their craftsmanship and timeless style – true to the Tiffany’s brand.
When designing, Truex says, “We might start with a particular color or silhouette and then draw from Tiffany’s world of beauty and sophistication to make a new design. The result is something unique, yet unmistakably Tiffany.”
The Manhattan Satchel in glazed crocodile is luxe, classic and generously sized – ideal for the on-the-go New Yorker. There are also pieces inspired by Tiffany jewelry. The Bracelet Bag is a frame satin pouch hanging from a beaded wrist chain that looks very much like, well, a bracelet. The Sofia minaudière has a crystal chain that takes after diamond necklaces in the Tiffany archives. The Collection also features highly covet-able wallets, organizers, card cases and Nappa leather gloves. In short, all are exquisite. My favorites? Anything in the Tiffany Blue® leather.
