Tod’s Opens in the Galleria

BY // 05.18.15

If the Tod’s shoe fits, wear it! On June 1, Tod’s opens its 10th U.S. boutique in the Houston Galleria on Level 1, across from Prada and near Neiman Marcus. What began more than a century ago in a basement by cobbler Filippo Della Valle was elevated to fame by grandson, Diego Dell Valle, with the Gommino pebble-bottom driving shoe and a leather shopping tote carried by Catherine Deneuve and Princess Caroline of Monaco, both under the name J.P. Tod’s. Effortless, off-hand-luxury were the hallmarks, and Italy, Hollywood and the East Coast adopted the charming pebbled shoe and the simple leather D bag. The brand, shortened to Tod’s, now encompasses men’s and women’s shoes and leather goods, as well as other coveted handbags such as the limited-edition Swarovski crystal Cape bag recently carried by Amal Clooney (swoon!).
