MULTI-HUED skies, rustling trees and the polished interiors of the countryside Villa Ronchi in Vigevano set the scene for the Tod’s FW21 Men’s collection, presented digitally.
This season, creative director Walter Chiapponi furthered his reinterpretation of the brand’s classics, tapping young actor Lorenzo Zurzolo, to model the lineup as he prepares for an upcoming role.
The film, entitled #sevenT, captures the Tod’s gentleman in his natural habitat, surrounded by nature, dressed head-to-toe in laid-back tailoring and practical outdoor pieces.
Trench coats and hunting jackets in warm, earthy tones were partnered with sturdy riding trousers, ribbed jumpers and retro college sweatshirts; subverting stuffy formality with unique and playful garment combinations.
The collection hits a stronger note with the accessories; robust lace-ups with Norwegian stitching appear alongside sleek patchwork trainers and Texan-heeled leather ankle boots, more often than not, punctuated by the brand’s signature T hardware motif.
Intelligently building on the pared-back simplification of last season, the Italian brand’s FW21 offering dusted off the gentleman’s wardrobe, giving it a relaxed update that feels both fresh and timeless in equal measure.
