Creative director Matteo Tamburini presented his debut collection for Tod’s in Milan today. 

For the monumental occasion, the house selected one of Milan’s iconic settings as a backdrop for the FW24/25 collection fashion show: the depot of the historic Darsena trams, a symbol of the energy and movement that animate the city.

It was a fitting location for Tamburini’s FW24 collection, which examines the duality between urban life and leisure, formal and informal, tradition and innovation. 

Key pieces included the leather trench, the masculine coat in both fabric and double-faced wool, the oversized field jacket and a wrapping cloak trimmed in leather.

Elsewhere in the collection, there are tailored wool twill suits featuring cigarette trousers with large turn-ups and collarless or single-breasted jackets along with cashmere, wool and silk knitwear layer cardigans upon cardigans, renewing the twin set concept. 

Throughout the show, masculine silhouettes took centre stage in a collection which celebrated deconstructed, subtle Italian luxury. Offering a natural, timeless elegance relaxed formality and sophisticated craftsmanship. 

The new distinctive feature of Tod’s footwear in the collection was a subtle metal band which reinterprets iconic models like the Gommino and the loafer, while the Yorky version of the Gommino is enriched with thin leather fringes that create movement with every step. 

Elsewhere,motorcycle-inspired boots become feminine thanks to brushed leathers that enhance Italian craftsmanship.

Bags in the collection featured deconstructed lines with enhanced precious shapes and materials. For FW24 there was also a reinterpretation of the Di Bag Swing, in soft and precious leathers, with inverted handles on either side and oversized volumes and saddlery stitching.
