The One Bag Spotted at Milan Women’s Fashion Week

A must in our closet.

Top models, socials and digital influencers were spotted in Milan wearing their TOD’S SELLA BAG last Milan Women’s Fashion Week.

Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, Krystal Jung, Linda Tol, Liu Wen, Mariacarla Boscono, Xenia Tchoumitcheva, Zhang Ziyi, Layla Monteiro, Faye Tsui, Diipa Khosla, Evangelie Smyrniotaki, Barbara Palvin, Edvig Opshaug, Sara Brajovic, Noor De Groot and Michelle Madsen are only a few of the international personalities seen in their #TodsSellaBag.

From the meticulous construction of the shoes and handbags, TOD’S is the label par excellence for handmade accessories for men and women. The TOD’S warehouses store some of the finest leathers from the best tanneries in the world. Each leather hide is checked by our experts for imperfections. They monitor the colour, thickness and texture, so that they are uniform, and those hides that do not meet our high standards are rejected. Once the shoes are completed, every pair is carefully inspected and those that have the slightest defect are discarded.

Process is involved in the making of the bags: The production techniques are similar to those used by ancient saddle makers. Extreme skill and attention to detail is required for the cutting of the leather and the sewing of each style, as it is meticulously pieced together.

Like the new Sella Bag where Ribbing and stitching are a sort of contemporary metropolitan architecture rooted in a long history of genuine saddle craft.

The Qipao As Interpreted by Innovative Filipino Designers: PHILIP RODRIGUEZ

The Qipao, an iconic symbol of Chinese fashion, takes center stage as we celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Wood Dragon. This singular closely-fitted garment crafted from the most opulent silks originated in 1920’s Shanghai. ZEE fashion editor Oj Hofer, has sought the creative insights of some of the Philippines’ most innovative designers for their interpretation of the elegant Qipao, also known as Cheongsam.

Cebu’s esteemed designer, Philip Rodriguez, pays homage to imperial attire with this stunning yellow silk brocade qipao. While adhering to the traditional cheongsam silhouette, Rodriguez infuses a touch of sensuality by incorporating see-through silk tulle panels along the waistline. Known for his timeless designs and culturally respectful creations, Rodriguez’s attention to detail is unparalleled. His embellishments are intricate and exquisite, showcasing impeccable taste and luxurious design without veering into ostentation. Take, for instance, his cheongsam for the Year of the Dragon. While it may seem daring compared to traditional sensibilities, Rodriguez maintains elegance by delicately veiling the wearer’s skin with sheer tulle on the cutout side panels. The front slit of the dress is cautiously calculated to strike the perfect balance between modesty and allure “I design for women who possess sophistication beyond their years, “ Philip emphasizes. “My clothes are crafted to evoke a sense of beauty and allure, leaving her feeling exquisite and confident.” As a seasoned designer, Rodriguez consistently achieves harmony in his designs. His qipao for 2024 seamlessly blends elements of royalty and sensuality, luxury and practicality, reflecting his mastery of the craft and his ability to create pieces that are truly elegant and well-balance.

The Qipao As Interpreted by Innovative Filipino Designers: JC BUENDIA

The Qipao, an iconic symbol of Chinese fashion, takes center stage as we celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Wood Dragon. This singular closely-fitted garment crafted from the most opulent silks originated in 1920’s Shanghai. ZEE fashion editor Oj Hofer, has sought the creative insights of some of the Philippines’ most innovative designers for their interpretation of the elegant Qipao, also known as Cheongsam.

JC Buendia, celebrated for his ability to tell a million style stories through minimalist details, is a master of clean, chic lines in fashion. Eschewing frivolity and nonsensical embellishments, every element of his designs contributes to their overall elegance.

Inspired by cinematic portrayals of Chinoiserie, Buendia’s first fascination with the Qipao began with Gloria Romero’s iconic portrayal of a Chinese princess disguised as a ‘sampan’ girl in the 1957 film “Hong Kong Holiday.”

“This admiration for orientalalia only deepened as I watched films like “The Last Emperor” and “In The Mood For Love,” JC recalls.

Buendia’s latest creation is a testament to this cinematic influence. His interpretation of the Qipao for the Year of the Wood Dragon features a cropped top crafted from silk Dupioni, embellished with diamond brooches on the reverse closure for a touch of glamour. Paired with a tea-length bouffant skirt made from frothy layers of delicate tulle, the ensemble exudes sophistication and timeless elegance.

With meticulous attention to detail and a keen eye for design, JC Buendia’s Qipao captures the essence of cinematic glamour while offering a contemporary twist on a classic silhouette. It’s a tribute to the enduring allure of Chinoiserie and the timeless beauty of the Cheongsam.
