Tod’s has announced a collaboration with Moroccan-Israeli fashion designer Alber Elbaz, but the duo are keeping details under wraps for now.

 

While we’re always eagerly awaiting the reveal of our favourite designers’ new collections that showcase their latest innovations, nothing heightens that excitement like a collaboration between creative talents.

 

Which is why we’re now counting down to the released of shoewear favourite Tod’s exclusive collaboration with designer Alber Elbaz.

 

A statement about the project in the making said: “Tod’s is pleased to announce the collaboration with Alber Elbaz – one of the most visionary designers of our time, who interpreted the world of Tod’s accessories with his unmistakable creative genius.”

Elbaz is working with the Tod’s Factory team – a branch off from the original footwear brand, Tod’s Factory creates a series of capsule collections with leaders within the fashion world –  on the line, but further details were kept under wraps for the time being.

 

The news comes four years into a hiatus from the designer, as he kept a low profile after leaving Lanvin in October 2015.

 

 

The designer previously described leaving his role within the French fashion house as a tragedy of sort. In 2016 while giving a talk at The New School’s Parsons School of Design, WWD reported that he said: “Since I left Lanvin I have a huge scar. For the first couple of months, I walked around Paris and it was raining. I never knew if it was the rain or my tears… If I ever find an interesting job that will make me want to wake up again, I’ll teach every Friday and work one day in a hospital. There’s no formula. But I don’t want to think about Lanvin.”

 

While a date hasn’t been set in stone for the new collaboration, Tod’s has assured it will be available worldwide ‘soon.’
