Gommino Tod's 3
Just in time for spring, The, the official e-commerce partner of Tod’s, Roger
Vivier, Hogan and Fay presents a whimsical and fun edition of Tod’s classic gommino loafer
– now available exclusively on its luxury multi-brand boutique.

Available in a fresh powder pink colour, the quirky shoe boasts a glittered metal penny bar
and a thin veil of micro glitter. Its shiny snake effect finish was obtained through a special
laser process that creates subtle stripes and silvery reflections on the leather. Staying true to
the Italian house’s renowned craftsmanship, the one-of-a-kind glitter gommino features
exposed handmade stitching, a hot stamped monogram and iconic rubber pebble outsoles.

The story of Tod’s signature loafer began in New York City towards the end of the 70s.
When a vintage driving shoe was discovered at one of the city’s flea markets, it gave rise to
the idea of creating a stylish loafer that was perfect to wear in both elegant and casual
settings – a concept that was unheard of before.
The art of creating one single gommino has still retained its authenticity. It takes 35 pieces
of the world’s finest leather to create a single shoe and each piece needs to be checked and
treated individually before been assembled and hand-sewn. The finished product is the
result of a series of 100 steps.

Amazon Presents The Dash Button: A “Buy now with 1-Click” Shopping Solution


What if you could buy anything with just one click? Sounds impossible, does not it? But now you can. With its dangerously convenient “Buy now with 1-ClickDash Button, Amazon once again proved that impossible is not a word in their vocabulary.

With this miraculous Dash Button, one tap is all you need to record your order for various household items automatically via Amazon Prime. And next thing you know the products are being delivered to your doorsteps.

For example, you are out of diapers. All you have to do is to tap your Huggies Dash Button. Within 48 hours you will get your desired products. You can even select the pack size using the Amazon Shopping app.

The Dash Button is a Wi-Fi-enabled, USB drive-sized gadget that comes with an adhesive back and a hook. So, you can stick or hang it anywhere in your house. Just connect the Dash button with your home Wi-Fi network using your Amazon app, and it’s ready to go.

Amazon Dash Button: How it works

At present, the Dash Button only works with a few different brands. These are  –

  1. Huggies
  2. Tide
  3. Bounty
  4. Gillette
  5. Olay
  6. Glad
  7. Clorox wipes
  8. Cottonelle
  9. Gerber Formula
  10. Larabar
  11. Kraft Mac and Cheese
  12. Maxwell House Coffe
  13. Gatorade
  14. Izze
  15. Smartwater
  16. L’Oreal Paris
  17. Wellpet Pet Food

If you are like me, you will probably start thinking – what happens if I (or any member of my family, especially the kids) tap the button 2-3 times? Will I receive a bulk order? Relax, Amazon got you covered. After the Dash Button is tapped, you’ll receive a notification on your smartphone and Amazon will need a confirmation to proceed. And the Dash Button responds to the first press until your products are delivered. They think of every little detail. Right?

This program is exclusive to Amazon Prime members, and as of now, the devices are available by invite only.

Soon, your appliances will have a similar Amazon-powered technology called the “Dash Replacement Service” that will automatically reorder related items (like, coffee, detergent etc.) on your behalf.

Imagine the possibilities –

  • Whirlpool washing machine will reorder detergent.
  • Brita water pitchers will eventually reorder their own filters.
  • Pour over coffee machines from select brands will reorder its own coffee beans.
  • Brother printers will reorder their own ink cartridge.

And shopping list will eventually become a thing of the past.

But these products will not hit the market until later this year. Till then,  you can sign up for the Amazing… oops… Amazon Dash Button and take your online shopping experience to the next level.
