An exhibition on Tod’s most famous bag, the D Bag.
Tod’s celebrates its iconic D Bag with the “D Bag Retrospective Exhibition” at Pacific Place Mall in Admiralty. The exhibition kicked off with a cocktail event on 31 March and will be on till 3 April. The exhibition showcases the evolution and philosophy of the iconic bag from when it launched in 1997 and its evolution throughout the years.
The D Bag with its stylish, relaxed shape looks set to become a classic bag for Tod’s for many years to come. The exhibition features a hanging installation of the D Bag in the middle of the mall and a Tod’s bag artisan was flown in to demonstrate the making of Tod’s D Bag. We were told that it takes around 2 and a half days to make one of these bags and each bag is made by skilled craftsmen by hand with meticulous attention to detail.
On display was a specially personalized D Bags by Michelle Yeoh featuring swallows and branches of peace to convey the message of peace and love in support of the people who were effected by the recent earthquake in Japan. The bag is to be auctioned off at a a silent auction with proceeds to benefit the relief efforts in Japan with a starting bid price of HK$9800.
