Fall Introductions: Toscana Italian Leather Collection

What better way to head into fall than armed with a luxurious collection of leather passementerie? Today marks the official launch of our Fall 2014 collections, delivering a new range of beading, bullion, tapes, tiebacks and cords that we will showcase on the blog in coming weeks. Among them, the Toscana Collection pairs the finest Italian leather with twenty-first century innovation.
