The Tiffany & Co style is now elegantly expressed in Tiffany leather, a natural evolution from jewelry of legendary design to handbags and accessories of flawless sophistication.
This Fall, American jeweller Tiffany & Co. launched a beautiful leather goods collection featuring bags and accessories that are elegant in design, rich in color and heavenly to the touch. Michael Kowalski, chairman of Tiffany & Co, held a cocktail party last month to celebrate the successful launch.

In attendance were design directors, Richard Lambertson and John Truex, a duo known for their craftsmanship and timeless style – true to the Tiffany’s brand. And if you’re wondering why the names sound so familiar, that’s because they formerly owned leather goods company Lambertson Truex that was bought over by Tiffany & Co. in 2009 after the company went bankrupt.
We might start with a particular color or silhouette and then draw from Tiffany’s world of beauty and sophistication to make a new design. The result is something unique, yet unmistakably Tiffany & Co.
The Manhattan Satchel in glazed crocodile is luxe, classic and generously sized – ideal for the on-the-go New Yorker. There are also pieces inspired by Tiffany jewelry. The Bracelet Bag is a frame satin pouch hanging from a beaded wrist chain that looks very much like, well, a bracelet. The Sofia minaudière has a crystal chain that takes after diamond necklaces in the Tiffany archives.

Last but not least, something for the men as well. The Collection also features highly covet-able wallets, organizers, card cases and Nappa leather gloves. Introducing the Tiffany Blake, a simply styled tote in grain leather that comes in 2 different colours. I do like the Tiffany Blue detail on the shoulder strap but that’s about it.

Tiffany & Co accessories for women and men.
Crafted of the finest materials, this modern collection for women and men embodies a distinctive beauty that is always in fashion. But the pieces in the collection aren’t spectacularly groundbreaking, that’s because they are supposed to ‘capture the spirit of American sportswear and its exuberant approach to life in town, in the country and from coast to coast’. In other words, safe, simple and maybe even a tad boring.
