Who are the Asian celebs Tod's has picked in their new book, Timeless Icons?
Nothing sells a product or accessory better than an icon associated with it. It's been a longstanding relationship that has stood the test of time, from Grace Kelly and Hermés, Jackie Kennedy and Gucci, Sophia Loren and Salvatore Ferragamo, Bryan Boy and Marc Jacobs and Alexa Chung and Mulberry. Each generation has its definitive IT bags, armed with the star power of the ambassadors of its time. The latest trendsetter to collect its own key opinion leaders — yes, we are throwing that phase around — is none other than Tod's, a brand with a history of aligning themselves with timelessness.
You've seen Tod's singing praises about the late Princess Diana in one of its earlier tomes, and have praised the Italians for their restoration of the Colosseum in Rome. It's this penchant for legacy that has fuelled Tod's to work with a select number of celebrities to coincide with a new accessory in their DOUBLE T family. Instantly recognised by the DOUBLE T BUCKLE on their range of shoes and bags, the new book, Timeless Icons is an extension of the brand's commitment to encapsulate aspirational style in a definitive volume.
Featuring 56 icons over 160 pages, the book published by Electa is expected to be out in February. While we're fans of some of the book's inhabitants (Jourdan Dunn, Lauren Hutton, Marianne Faithful and Veruschka), we're also celebrating the Asians we spotted on the list. See the celebrities who've made their mark below:
1. Zhang Ziyi
2. Lee Byung-Hun
3. Krystal Jung
4. Aaron Kwok
5. Liu Wen
6. Tong Dawei
