The smell of leather and fresh luxury drops always excite me! For those looking forward to the latest A/W 2015 collection, I had a peek at Tod’s sartorial and sporty collection.
This collection is all about threading. In leather, or parent leather, stitching migrates from bags to fabrics, and makes its mark on outerwear. Leather is treated like precious fabric, and Tod’s threading of leather laces becomes a bold stylistic statement. Made in Italy embodies the craftsmanship and pursuit of excellence. This is exactly what Tod’s AW 2015 collection is all about.
Come drool with me and see what’s in store at Tod’s.
Moccasins, Beatle boots and lace-ups have been grader onto a stylish rubber sole featuring Gommino pebbling. The new Gommino has fringes, threading, enamelled studs, and decorative graphics. It also has new volume, with a nod to the Beatle boot, while preserving the relaxed insouciance associated with Tod’s.
As for the bags, Tod’s has extend the saddlery0meets-sporty aesthetic that runs throughout the rest of the collection. In the new Wave, an everyday highly versatile bag is elevated through the use of coloured ribbing, visible stitching and a leather flap concealing the long zip.
The saddlery-style Flower is enlivened with paints, graphic effect fringes and leather hand-threaded through slots.
Last but certainly my most favorite is the iconic Cape that has the appearance of a saddle wrapping around itself, leather on leather, slotted patent leather or lasered applications personalized the look.
Technical flair and tailoring is what the Tod’s men’s collection is about. Formality meets sportiness in Tod’s fashionably elegant new sneakers. In many ways these set the tone for the rest of the footwear, where certain elements help reinvent classic shapes like the moccasin, monk strap and lace-up. Muted, natural tones and exquisite material sis what the menswear collection offers. Where bags are concerned, Tod’s introduce the new Cloud style, a cross-functional oversized piece. This has no bonded elements and is fashioned from ultra-lightweight leather. It has a messenger, gym, shopper and backpack styles – to suit a variety of uses and types of modern lifestyle.
It doesn’t help that it’s paired with an equally chic bag charm. Tod’s, why you doing this to me?! I still haven’t gotten over your D-Bag and now the Cape is haunting meeeeee!
Tod’s A/W 2015 is now available at Tod’s Philippines store in Greenbelt 4 and in Rustan’s Shangri-La.
