Tod’s, the luxurious Italian leather brand is presenting the latest collaboration, TOD’S TATTOO, the limited collection with the famous British tattoo artist, Saira Hunjan to indicate the great combination of art on skin and craftsmanship by using real tattoo technique on Tod’s leather handbags and shoes.
Not only that Saira Hunjan’s reputation is known as a tattooist with the name ‘the girl with the golden needle’, she is well-known among the famous Superstars e.g. Kate Moss, Sadie Frost, and etc. One of her accomplishments is to bring up her great design to the world and become part of the fashion world. The heart of Saira’s works is the importance of detailing. Craftsmanship is part of her design, making the perfect combination for Tod’s works on every leather product. This collaboration is considered the first time that a real tattoo is made on the luxurious leather products, creating a new excitement for the brand.
Saira has designed signature tattoo patterns for Tod’s handbag and shoe collections including Double T messenger handbags, Tod’s iconic Gommino shoes, sneakers, and slip-on shoes, and selected ready-to-wear pieces such as leather jackets using a silk-screening technique. The big sheets of cowhide leather have been transformed into an empty canvas for Saira to paint her imagination through the black ink that becomes the amazing collection.
What makes Saira’s tattoo design most special for Tod’s is the link between romanticism, power, and strength. Each part of the tattoo print has its own story represented by symbols of animal body and soul such as her signature lion pattern, dragon, snake, as well as roses and hearts. She spent over 22 hours on the designs for this collection with the challenge of using different type of skin for her work, that this collection becomes one of the top works in her entire life.
Tod’s Tattoo, the Limited Collection from the genuine Italian made brand is ready to launch in selected Tod’s boutiques worldwide, including Thailand’s boutique at Siam Paragon from June 2017.
