Last night I was one of the lucky few to have been invited to the unveiling of Pippa Toledo’s signature handbag and jewellery collection. I have to tell you, I have quite a long wish list and am looking forward to my anniversary, birthday and Christmas already. The colours, the textures, the opulence of the fabrics used in this way, the handles, the shapes are unique to the islands and I’m sure I will start to spot her pieces (with green eyes) on the well heeled from today!
The evening bags seemed edible – the jewel colours making the choice of one just too difficult. “The idea behind my collections is that any woman can look glamorous even when wearing something simple by pairing the outfit with a striking handbag or a unique piece of jewellery.” said Pippa. “Every little detail in all my pieces is carefully considered and thought through. The collection is full of statement pieces that stand alone, the perfect addition to that little black dress or simple summer slip.”
The crochet earrings, bejeweled bangles, stunning gold swirl neck art and velvet bags have my attention. The studio is easy to park outside (Triq il-Baltiku, St Julian’s) and I do recommend going to have a look to see the pieces -it will be the place for gifts for the woman who has everything, that difficult to buy for friend and for the most exquisite gifts.
