Tod's SS24

A POWERHOUSE of reinvented craftsmanship, there is a formula that is almost always certain at any Tod’s show: an earthy colour palette, contrasting raw materials and an un-rivalled line of production. Leaning further into their venture of relaxed classics, for spring-summer 2023 the house introduces a line of approachable yet refined staples.

The backdrop of the traditional Italian gardens of Milanese Villa Necchi added a distinct European charm which enhanced the presentation further. Though the heat may have suggested otherwise, the line of casually tailored suit jackets made from leather and suede and patterned nylon field jackets preempted cooler spring evenings.

With such a strong-rooted reputation in accessories, it’s hard for attention not to be turned toward the line off tactile confections, both old and new, that accompany the muted collection of garments on show. 

Belts of rope and woven leather bring a sort of artisan charm and adds a sensual layer of texture to the looks which certainly nods to the brand’s heritage of design, complimented by the timeless Gommino and Bubble Gommino driving shoes. 

Classics like the aforementioned shoe are accompanied by the likes of the evolved Tabs Sneaker, crafted in duelling linen and leather to cater to metropolitan affairs, and bridge the seasonal gap between spring and summer. 

Having recently made its excursion into the menswear line, the beloved Di Bag is reformed with an arsenal of new styles that are sure to become a fixture of many individuals winter wardrobe. Designs include a portfolio, handbag shoulder bag and weekend luggage creation which speak to the house’s commitment of practicality and wearability. 

Tod’s knows their customer base inside and out, and the reinvention of such a enamoured, versatile bag seems like the perfect way of creating a hero accessory for the upcoming season.
