With summer just around the corner and the world slowly but surely opening up, it is time to start thinking about getting dressed again. Over the last year, we scaled back our wardrobes and returned to our favorite fashion staples. But in that time, we also rediscovered the charm of our accessories: those versatile styling pieces that have a way of injecting personality into any look.
The accessories of the Tod’s Summer 2021 collection are a tribute to the distinct spirit of Italian summer style. Light materials such as cotton, raffia, and linen are celebrated throughout the collection. The exaggerated proportions of the collection’s miniature and oversized bags channel the playful summer mood with effortless style.
Whether they’re paired with denim for a chic city look or the hero of your go-to beach outfit, these versatile accessories embody the sunny attitude we’re most looking forward to this season. Take note.
Cork Platform Wedges
Since it first broke into the fashion scene in the ’70s, the wedge remains an icon of summer style. Designers have reimagined its timeless silhouette many times over the decades, but the Tod’s leather and cork interpretation for the summer 2021 collection is a perfect ode to the season’s effortlessly chic spirit. It’s easy to imagine slipping on this platform wedge and being transported to a quintessential Italian summer day: lunch at a restaurant overlooking the blue Mediterranean and a kiss stolen in the shade of a wisteria.
Statement Shopping Totes
The classic straw basket gets a chic upgrade with the Gommini. Designed for the everyday, this shopping tote features a leather panel embossed with Tod’s signature rubber pads at the bottom (the same pads found on the iconic Tod’s Gommino moccasins). Whether you choose the maxi size for its endless versatility or the mini for its sweet disposition, each silhouette-available in either cotton or raffia-is as delicious as a Tropézienne tart on a hot summer day.
It’s official: Macramé is back like we’ve never seen before. The artful craft has found its way onto all of the season’s best accessories-from espadrilles to totes. On Tod’s covetable bags, hand-knotted and fringed detailing perfectly complements natural leather. And what would summer be without the perfect pair of espadrilles? These macramé and leather versions are just the pair you want to slip on for an afternoon aperitif at the beach. We just might have to order a spritz now.
Breezy Summer Satchels
The classic satchel bag is the secret to light and breezy summer style. Tossed effortlessly over the shoulder or carried as a cross-body, the versatile leather, raffia, and cotton options from Tod’s are equal parts practical and timeless. The shoulder strap lengthens or shortens according to preferences, and the bag’s size is just right for carrying the everyday essentials. Whether it’s lunch with friends or a dinner date, the silhouette brings style to every occasion. This bag will see you from the office into the long-awaited summer holidays.
Leather Vacation Slides
If the past year of style has taught us anything, it’s the importance of having beautifully crafted fashion staples in our day-to-day wardrobe. For days in the sunshine, few pieces are more fundamental than a sandal. Simple in its design yet rich with detail, the leather slide is poised bound to be the “It” shoe of summer 2021. Minimalists should look no further than this chic cut-out option by Tod’s. It’s the perfect summer sandal to slip into your weekender for everything from escapes in the city and vacations to picturesque beaches.
Tiny Bon-ton Bags
Perfect for a cocktail party on the terrace or a night out in the name of style, the mini bag is the style to carry from sunrise to sunset (or vice versa). It’s small-very small-and designed to fit only the necessities: a smartphone, house keys, and lipstick. This irresistible option from Tod’s is made of a raffia and cotton blend with natural leather trim is minimal chic at its absolute finest. And with a detachable strap, this tiny bag allows you to have your hands free wherever the summer breeze takes you.

Sling this Tod’s Oboe bag over your shoulder for a sophisticated look that’s perfect for life on the go. For those whose summer days are already booked full of commitments, the bag’s extendable shoulder strap makes it possible to carry a laptop in tow-a feature that’s sure to be a favorite for anyone spending their summer running around the city.
